“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” - Pele
Thus spoke Brazilian superstar, one of the greatest soccer players of all time. The Basement Sports team took these words to heart when bringing soccer to the market. Now—after months of work, perseverance, studying, and (most of all) love of what we were doing—soccer is available both in the Basement Sports app and as part of the 2-in-1 Soccer/Hockey Starter Kit.
“Soccer is the universal sport,” says Basement Sports CEO and Founder Arman Rousta. “It is the universal language.” Indeed, soccer exerts an almost magnetic pull on the people of the globe, its magic resonating to every nation, regardless of cultural differences. The Basement Sports team couldn’t be happier to bring this magic to little kids and big kids alike.
Hockey, which functions similarly to Soccer, from a scorekeeping and indoor equipment standpoint, was a perfect pairing for this new product launch. Given all of the restrictions during Covid-19, keeping kids active and playing indoors, especially during Winter nights, is essential and largely lacking around the world. This first multi-sport kit, coupled with the app now having 3 sports - Baseball being the original and first - gives kids and families lots of reasons to stay active while having loads of fun.
