About Soccer and Rugby Imports
Soccer and Rugby Imports was established in 1993, beginning its first seven years in a small retail strip in Westport, Conn. Since the year 2000, the Avalos family took over the business and quickly began to outgrow its modest Westport location. In 2004, as the popularity of soccer in the area increased, as well as the reach of the business, the store moved to nearby Southport, Conn. Four more locations have opened in the subsequent years: Ridgefield, Conn., Greenwich, Conn., Madison, Conn., and Bronxville, N.Y. Soccer and Rugby Imports has been supplying Connecticut's soccer clubs and organizations across the country and abroad for the past 20 years. From cleats and practice gear from the retail shop to customized jerseys, shorts, warm ups and backpacks from the Team Sales department, thousands of people have been linked to Soccer and Rugby Imports. Soccer and Rugby Imports also carries exclusive gear.
