United Premier Soccer League Partners with E-Commerce Platform XPO2 to Drive Cashless Team Revenue
UPSL Names Online Company XPO2 with a Four-Year Sponsorship Deal
The agreement covers the launch and promotion of a white-label e-commerce platform that offers all UPSL clubs special coupons and discounts when shopping online while, at the same time, creating an income stream for the respective club with each purchase – at no extra cost to the consumer.
The agreement calls for the deployment of a white-label XPO2 platform on behalf of each UPSL team. Team owners are encouraged to contact Dom Einhorn at 1-310-383-8200 or via email (email@example.com)
Several UPSL teams have already taken advantage of this special offer, such as the L.A. Wolves FC, the Santa Ana Winds FC and the Boise FC Cutthroats.
No personal identifying information is collected when the consumer shops through the white-label platform although supporters are highly encouraged to register their email address on the platform to secure access to exclusive merchant promotions and discounts reserved only for affiliates.
UPSL Commissioner Yan Skwara said, "The very core of our league vision and operating philosophy has always been supporting our club members so they can be financially viable year-in and year-out. This new partnership with XPO2 is fantastic as clubs can now provide their players, families and fans a simple turn-key online e-commerce solution to purchase selected everyday products and services at better prices than they're paying now while at the same time generating a percentage of each sale will go back to the club. These dollars add up and in many cases can cover a portion or all of a annual team budget if a team focuses and implementing the XPO2 system properly."
Exponential, Inc. CEO and Founder Dom Einhorn said, "We look forward to assisting all UPSL teams and supporting them as they create income incrementally through cashless funds via their own custom white-label platform. We will continue to add new merchants, special offers and promotions to the platform as our objective is to help UPSL supporters (players, families, friends or other) save money while making regular day-to-day purchases online. At the same time, each purchase will generate a cashback contribution to the team. So this is truly a win-win situation for all stakeholders. Our technology automatically tracks the cashback allocations, so nothing changes for the person making the purchase. The only thing supporters need to remember is to shop via their favorite team's white-label platform or click directly on the special offers they receive via email."
All white-label UPSL team platforms feature dozens of marquee merchants including Staples, eBay, Groupon, Macy's, Skechers, Nike, Priceline, Hotels.com, all leading rental car companies and countless more. Team owners and players can even use the platform to offset some of their hard operating costs by gaining direct access to discounted lodging, below-retail gasoline cards, etc.
According to Research and Markets, the global e-commerce market was USD 22.70 trillion in 2016 and will reach USD 44.33 trillion by 2022 at a CAGR of 11.8% during the forecasted period. The United States represents the world's largest market for e-commerce, with retail e-commerce sales slated to reach $479 billion by 2020 (Statista).
