Soccer and Rugby Imports Donates Soccer Balls to the Kick for Nick Foundation

Connecticut and New York-Based Soccer Gear and Attire Company Donates Soccer Balls to Local Foundation

​Soccer and Rugby Imports, an online sports apparel and equipment retailer, has announced their annual donation toward the Kick for Nick Foundation. This foundation supports U.S. troops and volunteer efforts, and Soccer & Rugby is thrilled to be a part of such a great cause.

The Kick for Nick Foundation delivers sports equipment to underprivileged children so that they can have an equal opportunity to enjoy sports. The Kick for Nick Foundation was initiated in memory of PFC Nicholas A. Madaras of Wilton, CT who lost his life while on duty in Iraq in late 2006.

These are efforts which work to foster unity, strength and cohesion around the world.

Nicola Colamussi, Manager

Nick was a devoted and eager footballer, coach and referee all throughout his youth. While in Iraq, Nick realized how many talented children were over there at the game of soccer. Although they didn’t have the privilege of owning a soccer ball themselves, Nick saw that talent that was there as they played soccer with tin cans. In honor of Nick, Soccer and Rugby Imports is donating soccer balls to children in less fortunate countries.

“These are efforts which work to foster unity, strength, and cohesion around the world,” said Nicola Colamussi, Manager at Soccer and Rugby Imports. “We love being able to give back to such amazing causes.”

Soccer and Rugby Imports is dedicated to donating to various charities around the globe in an effort to bring joy to those less fortunate. It is the company’s duty to work endlessly to advocate the game of soccer, as well as inform players, coaches as well as families about the sport and the appropriate equipment.

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 team jerseys, shorts, warm-ups, and backpacks from the Team Sales department, thousands of people have been linked to Soccer and Rugby Imports.
