Waxhead chosen as Jacksonville Armada’s game day Nutrient Bar
Waxhead announces partnership with Jacksonville Armada FC
PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Amelia Island, Florida–January 25, 2016
Waxhead Sun Defense Company today announced a partnership agreement with Northeast Florida’s premiere professional soccer team, the Jacksonville Armada Football Club, to supply players for the Armada and visiting teams with Waxhead nutrient bars as game day snacks for the Spring and Fall 2016 seasons.
New Armada FC head coach and technical director Tony Meola pushed for the change to foods better aligned with the realities of their sport, and he’s pleased with the switch. “Our team spends a tremendous amount of time practicing and playing in the sun, and I’m thrilled to have Waxhead bars to help defend our skin from this consistent exposure.”
Meola, former goalie for the US men’s World Cup team and a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame, continued, “It feels good knowing Waxhead snacks will not only deliver good nutrients and protein to fuel our players’ performance, they’ll actually help maintain long term health for a life spent competing passionately in the sun. The similarities between our two organizations make this a natural alliance – enhancing player nutrition, our fans’ experience and the Armada’s dedication to the local community.”
One of the North American Soccer League’s newest clubs, the Jacksonville Armada FC set various league attendance records last season and plays its home matches at Community First Park. The 2016 season begins February 6 with a preseason match against the MLS’s Philadelphia Union.
Through its “Thrive in the Sun” philosophy, Waxhead is committed to making life in the sun better by creating revolutionary sun defense products like their antioxidant-rich nutrient bars, along with other cutting edge products like zinc oxide vitamin D enhanced sunscreen and high SPF sun shirts made with fibers from sustainable bamboo.
Waxhead co-founder Kari Kenner explains, “Making life in the sun better is our number one goal. Our nutrient bars will allow Armada players to maintain healthy skin in the sun while refueling their bodies for high-level athletic competition. We’re thrilled about this partnership, and Armada fans can look forward to ongoing promotions where they can win Waxhead products during games.”
