QUAKERTOWN, Penn. (April 8, 2015) – Kwik Goal, Ltd. and ArtsQuest have announced a partnership for 2015 that will see Kwik Goal as the official soccer equipment provider for the Lehigh Valley SoccerFest Viewing Parties taking place at the historic SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA, this summer. The agreement will see Kwik Goal provide equipment for the demonstration and games area, including soccer goals and soccer tennis games.
In 2014, ArtsQuest successfully held World Cup viewing parties at the famed SteelStacks entertainment venue, seeing crowds in upwards of 10,000 for U.S. Men’s National Team Games. The large screens and festive atmosphere on the former steel mill brought together the soccer community of the greater Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania.
For 2015, ArtsQuest will again be staging viewing parties for all of the U.S. Women’s National Team matches as they head to Canada with the hopes of capturing their third Women’s World Cup and the first since the 1999 side took home the trophy on home soil.
“We are thankful to ArtsQuest for having the vision to host viewing parties to support the U.S. Women’s National Team”, said Don Wetmore, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kwik Goal. “With such a great event being hosted in our backyard, we are happy to bring together our support of the U.S. Women and the local soccer community by partnering with ArtsQuest for this great summer event.”
“Kwik Goal has long been committed to developing the best and safest soccer goals and equipment possible, making them a favorite of many youth soccer programs nationwide,” said ArtsQuest Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Partnerships Curt Mosel. “Their focus on young people, as well as their commitment to our community, make them an excellent fit for ArtsQuest’s family-focused programming at the Lehigh Valley SoccerFest and other festivals and events throughout the year.”
