Yokohama Tire Corporation has signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with US Youth Soccer. The agreement names Yokohama as the “Official Tire Sponsor of US Youth Soccer.”


The US Youth Soccer partnership also includes YTC as the title sponsor of the Yokohama Skills Challenge, a nationwide tour designed to help children of all ages develop a variety of core soccer skills in a fun, engaging way.  

“US Youth Soccer is the largest youth sports organization in the country and a remarkable group to partner with,” said Alan Holtschneider, Yokohama Tire director of marketing. “Through soccer, they teach the value of teamwork to millions of children across the country. We’re glad to support them with opportunities like the Yokohama Skills Challenge, which will help keep kids active by developing fundamental soccer skills.”

The Yokohama Skills Challenge will be an opportunity for Yokohama to activate its partnership with another soccer organization, Chelsea FC from the English Premier League. The Challenge will provide involvement for the Chelsea FC Foundation coaches to assist with the program and offer coaching, as well as, player clinics in select markets.
