In a move to make it easy for local associations to seamlessly sell team fanwear to their athletes and families through their own branded online shop, Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc., the nation’s leading youth football and cheerleading organization, today announced a bold partnership with Bespoke Labs, which powers thousands of the world’s top brands with proprietary print-on-demand mass customization technology.
Bespoke has set up an always-on fan store where families and supporters of a team can order everything on-demand – ranging from shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and jackets to accessories like bags, drinkware, and blankets. Any participating Pop Warner will have the capability of customizing several templates with their own official marks, colors, and name.
This partnership comes as part of Pop Warner’s ongoing initiative to forge relationships with companies who share similar values, and are committed to moving forward those values to create the best possible football and cheer and dance experience for today’s youth. Team uniforms will continue to be fulfilled through Pop Warner Authentic.
“Families involved with Pop Warner are constantly looking to show off their team pride and this new approach will help them do that without requiring local associations to do any work,” said Jon Butler, executive director of Pop Warner Little Scholars. “Our partnership with Bespoke will allow Pop Warner associations to open a shop, offer quality, branded gear to their fans and families, earn a percentage of all sales without doing any of the heavy lifting that is often required to set up online stores.”
“This partnership is genuinely groundbreaking for organized youth sports,” said Bespoke Labs EVP/GM, Ken West. “Pop Warner athletes and their families can celebrate participation and achievements in the same way as professional athletes and organizations. Every association has a branded shop open 24/7, with a mall of apparel and accessories, shipped directly to their home in a matter of days without any minimum order requirements. A true consumer-like fan experience.”
