Marucci Sports has renewed their partnerships with 21 elite travel baseball clubs to form the newly created Franchise Club. Previous members of the Marucci Founders’ Club were invited to deepen their integration with the brand and join the Franchise Club. Upon signing as a Franchise Club, each club was offered increased support and exposure from Marucci, and their partner brand, Victus.
“We are honored by the renewed commitment these teams have made and look forward to their continued success. We’ve always prided ourselves on premium products and superior customer service, so the number of elite teams trusting us with their success and growth is a testament to the dedication of our Team Sales division, and our organization as a whole,” said Kurt Ainsworth, Co-Founder and CEO of Marucci Sports.
The Franchise Club is home to 21 elite travel ball teams from across the country. Each team signed a new, multi-year partnership with Marucci Sports and was granted exclusive benefits not previously offered to our Founders’ Club teams. One of the most desirable features is permitting the organizations’ use of Marucci and Victus brand names in their organization or team names.
The Franchise Club organizations include:
California Baseball Academy, Louisiana Knights, Marucci Athletics, Marucci Elite Texas, Indiana Prospects, Natural Baseball Academy – Marucci , Georgia Bombers, Marucci/Victus Midwest Nationals, Tri-State Arsenal, Richmond County Baseball Club, CBC Marucci Blackhawks, Scorpions Baseball, Illinois Travel Baseball Club, Omaha Tigers, Impact Sports Academy, 9ers Baseball Club, Stars Baseball, East Coast Sox, Traction Canes, Showcase Baseball Academy and the Dallas Tigers.
Having this large group of elite travel baseball teams represent Marucci and Victus across the country positions the organization and both brands for exponential growth.
“We are excited by the evolution of our Founders’ Clubs into our Franchise Clubs. The dedication that each of these teams show towards their players are unmatched and we couldn’t be happier to partner with these prominent organizations. We look forward to them representing Marucci and Victus on the field,” said Kyle Achord, Marucci’s Vice President of Team Sales.
The Founders’ Club programs made the commitment to represent Marucci on-and-off the field, and to Honor the Game in every way possible. This group consists of some of the largest, most influential, and well-respected programs in amateur baseball. With many of the teams ascending to the Franchise Club, Marucci has now begun seeking the next members of the Founders’ Club.
