South Georgia Tormenta Football Club (Tormenta FC) and The Aspire Group (Aspire) have announced a multi-year contract extension. Since first partnering in 2019, Aspire has generated revenue for Tormenta FC through both ticket and corporate sponsorship sales.
Led by Director of Sales & Service, Jenn Morris, Tormenta FC’s on-site Fan Relationship Management Center (FRMC) represents 1 of Aspire’s 4 active partners across the United Soccer League (USL). Aspire has implemented industry next practices at Tormenta FC, including strategic sales and service workshops with VP of Training, Mike Boswell.
This partnership extension comes just before the completion of Tormenta Stadium, the 5,300-seat anchor of a larger live-work-play district in Statesboro, GA. Aspire is excited to enter this next phase alongside Tormenta FC, as they work to fill the stands with passionate fans and grow Tormenta Nation.
In response to the partnership extension, Aspire’s VP of Training, Mike Boswell, said:
The Aspire Group is proud to extend our relationship with Tormenta FC. We know that playing time is earned, whether it be on the pitch or in business, and we are extremely proud to have earned this opportunity to continue to succeed alongside our friends and partners.
Tormenta FC President, Darin Van Tassell, said:
Choosing to partner with The Aspire Group in 2019 has proven to be a wise decision because of both the results we have driven and the trust we have built. As we get closer to the opening of Tormenta Stadium, The Aspire Group becomes an even more valuable partner and advisor. We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Aspire for many more fruitful years.
