About Challenger sports

Challenger sports FDD

Challenger Sports is a multi-faceted
international sports company who provide a wide variety of player
development programs, coach education clinics, tournaments, tours, and
uniform and equipment supply to hundreds of thousands of players,
parents, and coaches across the globe.
Operating originally as ‘British
Soccer Camps’ Challenger Sports began running summer soccer camps in the
US in 1985. Each year the company grew and the founders of Challenger
diversified and expanded their range of services and products in
response to the increasing demands of the rapidly growing North American
soccer population.
In 1997 the “Challenger” brand was
created along with a vision of duplicating the highly successful soccer
services and products model into multiple sports. Within two years,
company owners Ron Matsch, Peter Arch, Alan Jones, Paul Lawrence, Derek
Shoare and Andy Bennett had established a network of regional offices
serving soccer communities in every US state and 7 Canadian provinces. Challenger Sports  also invested heavily in the United Kingdom and were the
first US based soccer company to set up a full-time recruitment and
training operation in Britain.
