EUHERE Sports LLC, subsidiary of Czech based 20-year old UHER Company, world leader in the production and distribution of multipurpose sports outdoor arenas, soccer, hockey, floorball rinks and other sports products, is pleased to announce the opening of its first North American office in Charlotte. The new office is located at 3700 Arco Corporate Drive, Suite 475, Charlotte, NC 28273.
"With soccer experiencing an unprecedented growth in the United States and with increasing popularity of the sport, especially among youth players, we believe the timing to enter the U.S. market is now,” said Petr Vasicko, co-founder of EUHERE Sports.
Strategic partnerships have already been forged with D.C. United, an MLS soccer club as well as two renowned local youth soccer academies: Charlotte Soccer Academy and Leggo Sports Soccer Indoor Academy where its players will be the first in North America to hone its soccer skills while experiencing the benefits of EUHERE Sports soccer rinks.
EUHERE Sports selected Charlotte over other considered locations for several reasons including its superb business climate, cost to conduct business, its central location on the East Coast and proximity to Europe, and its booming sports population. EUHERE Sports has already begun selling and distributing soccer rinks while identifying other market opportunities.
“Soccer is big business. Whether it is the city’s ability to attract international matches such as the recent Bayern Munich and Inter Milan game or others over the past several years, the sport is helping to attract more young professionals which in turn is further diversifying Charlotte’s population,” added Bob Morgan, Charlotte Chamber CEO and president.
