Richmond Girls Soccer strikes sponsorship deal

Association teams up with Steveston Real Estate and Penta Homes for coming season

Richmond Girls Soccer Association (RGSA) is set to kickoff the 2016-17 season with the organization’s first-ever corporate sponsor.
Steveston Real Estate and Penta Homes will each contribute $12,000 over the next two years ($24,000 total) to help pay for new equipment, fund operations and create additional training opportunities. In return, the company logos have been added to all RGSA team kits ages U10 and above.
“We're really proud to make this commitment and provide support for the RGSA,” said Barry Cavanaugh, President of Penta Homes. “The association provides an important pathway for girls and women in our community, of all ages and skill levels, to play or be involved in soccer.”
This season, the RGSA has over 500 players registered on 38 teams, ranging in age from under five to two women's teams competing in the Metro Women's Soccer League.
"We're really excited about this new partnership which will allow us to create more development opportunities for our players,” said Mandir Punia, RGSA Board Chair. “This funding will be invested in programming, equipment and new technology." 
Many RGSA teams have already begun training for the new season and the remainder will get started over the Labour Day weekend.
