Hashtag United combines soccer and social media.

Hashtag United

There is an English soccer team which has toured the US and Spain, seen hundreds of thousands of fans tune into their weekend matches and played in some of the sport’s most hallowed arenas against stars like Steven Gerrard. The team’s captain alone has more YouTube followers than the official account of Manchester United, the world’s highest earning club.

They have yet to play their first official match.

This is Hashtag United, the two-year-old club from Essex, England, who are about to enter the tenth tier of English soccer — aka “football” in most of the world. They’re the self-proclaimed “world’s best-known amateur football team” whose unlikely rise is entirely the result of YouTube, where they post all their games. Read more of the story and get on board!

5 calls to action for youth soccer

by Mike Carter

“We must not measure the development of soccer in the United States simply by the number of people who play soccer, rather, we must measure it by the number of people who love soccer.
It is the people who love soccer that will, over time, elevate soccer to the status of preeminent sport in the United States.”

Such is the beginning of a great blog post from our partners at
SoccerParenting.com, which we thought you would appreciate. It goes on to outline five calls to action for youth soccer that are crucial to making soccer the preeminent sport in the United States. Enjoy.

Lakewood Phoenix in Code Four Athletics Soccer Uniforms

by Mike Carter

We just couldn’t help but share this great team picture from one of our newest soccer team customers, the Lakewood Phoenix. Located just south of Seattle, this girls’ U11 team recently purchased our
Nova Soccer Team Package that includes our Nova soccer uniform kit and Sparta soccer warm ups.

Code Four customer spotlight: Ben Franklin H.S. (New Orleans) wins state soccer championship.

by Mike Carter

We’d like to give a big shout out and virtual fist bump to the Ben Franklin H.S. (New Orleans, LA)  boys’ AND girls’ soccer teams, who last week won their respective Division II LHSAA State Soccer Championships. The girls won their final match 2-0, and then one day later the boys finished with a thrilling 3-2 overtime victory. It’s the second time in 10 years that the school has swept a state soccer championship.

The crowd cheers Ben Franklin H.S. on to victory.

We recently outfitted the teams in our Viper soccer warmups (shown here on some front-row fans), which no doubt aided in the victories.

OK, we took a little creative license there, but the players sure looked great and kept warm on the sidelines!

Check out this cool highlight video from the boys’ win:

Remnants of National Soccer Hall of Fame gathering dust in remote warehouse.

Items from the National Soccer Hall of Fame await their day in the sun behind this warehouse door.

Items from the National Soccer Hall of Fame await their day in the sun behind this warehouse door.

When the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta, N.Y., closed in early 2010, its tens of thousands of trophies, photographs, guidebooks, jerseys, balls and other exhibits were crated and freighted to Hillsborough, North Carolina.

There, the largest collection of American soccer history sits in limbo, walled within a 3,200-square-foot warehouse beyond public view, awaiting the day when will and wealth might again combine to breathe new life into a showcase for this country’s soccer legacy.

What will become of these storied treasures? Read more and discover this unique story.
