Ottawa, ON (March 15th, 2021) – Atlético Ottawa is excited to announce the Gloucester Dragons as the newest community partner of the Powered by Atlético Ottawa program.
The Gloucester Dragons are a not-for-profit recreational soccer organization that has provided youth soccer programs in the east Ottawa community since 1971. The organization is volunteer run and offers a fun environment for youth between the ages of four and eighteen to participate in recreational league play.
The Powered by Atlético Ottawa program will allow the Gloucester Dragons to provide additional tools, resources, and unforgettable experiences to their members, while facilitating a pathway for their youth players to be identified by Atlético de Madrid, Atlético Ottawa and the Canadian Premier League.
As members of the program, the Gloucester Dragons will have the right to:
- Use the Powered by Atlético brand on club communications, promotions, advertising and PR activities.
- Be present on specific branding, communication and media platforms of Atlético Ottawa.
- Purchase season memberships, group tickets and youth tickets and receive merchandise discounts and exclusive access to Atlético Ottawa events.
- Receive invitations to team practices, intra-squad games and access to Atlético Ottawa technical staff such as nutritionists; physical conditioning, strength and fitness trainers; doctors and other staff.
- Host Atlético Ottawa staff and players in a joint community practice at Gloucester Dragons fields.
In addition, given the opportunity presented by Atlético Ottawa parent Club Atlético de Madrid, the Gloucester Dragons will have access to experiences found HERE.
“Fifty years of recreational soccer is something to be proud of. For a recreational club to stand the test of time providing quality programming and fun is very special. This partnership will allow us to increase engagement with all levels of soccer. It provides the opportunity for us to make a significant impact at the recreational level,” says Jeff Hunt, Atlético Ottawa President.
“The Dragons are one of the only independent recreational clubs in Ontario and it shows the versatility in our Powered by Atlético Ottawa community program. We not only want to promote the best players in the city and support minor soccer, but we also want to be involved at the grassroots level. This shows our commitment to work together with all types of soccer organizations in the region and gives us the opportunity to get out into the community at the recreational level,” says Fernando Lopez, Atlético Ottawa, CEO.
“As the only sanctioned club in Ottawa focused on 100% FUN youth recreational soccer, the Gloucester Dragons are thrilled to partner with Atlético Ottawa. Everyone in the Dragons community – our players, parents, officials and volunteers – are looking forward to participating in the Powered by Atlético program and watching Ottawa’s professional soccer team take the field at TD Place this summer,” says Bill Coleman, Gloucester Dragons, President.
