PHILADELPHIA (April 12, 2013) – The 2012 American Conference Champion Philadelphia Soul, presented by Parx Casino, announce a Two-Year partnership with South Jersey Elite Invitational Youth Football League (SJEIYFL).

The unique partnership links one of Philadelphia’s winningest professional sports teams since its inception with one of the area’s most competitive and successful youth sports leagues. The partnership creates co-branding, development and educational opportunities as well as one-of-a-kind experiences for all levels of members of SJEIYFL, including both youth football and cheer, and their league administrations, organization and team administrations, coaches, players and cheerleaders.

“South Jersey Elite is a premier sports league in the area and I am thrilled to be forming this partnership that gets their people out to Soul games while providing incredible experiences and opportunities for their organization. But most importantly, I am looking forward to working with everybody in their league to continue to grow the best sport in the world,” said Soul owner Ron Jaworski.

“The Soul is a class organization that is committed to our youth”, said South Jersey Elite President Mike DiFlorio. “This partnership creates opportunities for our league, especially for our kids, that is a dream for somebody in my position.”

The partnership kicks off this Spring with opportunities for South Jersey Elite Invitational Youth Football members to be included in a series of coaches, players and cheer clinics. In addition to clinics provided for every member of SJEIYFL, Year Two will include a customized set of instructional videos created exclusively for the league, league promotional opportunities using Soul assets, coaching development programs and a significant fundraising program.
