Palmdale, CA, March 03, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- For almost two years, the AVID Soccer Equipment Review has tested a variety of apparel, training/coaching gear, soccer balls and books related to playing the game. Beginning in March, AVID Soccer will expand their coverage and testing to include off-pitch apparel and gear.
In addition to the usual durability, maintenance and usability testing, AVID Soccer will also present more qualitative results. Focus group opinions and style factors will play a larger role. After all, lifestyle is all about style. Products covered (blog.avidsoccer.com/categories/Lifestyle.aspx) will include items for soccer players and soccer families. Covered equipment includes:
- Clothes (jackets, shirts, shorts)
- Shoes (training, street soccer, pre/post game)
- Accessories (Electronics, hats, bags)
Manufacturers have already supplied a range of products to fill the launch week, but AVID Soccer will continue to add products throughout the year. Manufacturers interested in providing products for review should contact AVID Soccer directly at reviews@avidsoccer or read the submission instructions at http://www.avidsoccer.com/productsubmissions.htm.
