Philadelphia Lone Star FC have announced Cypher Language Services as their new primary jersey sponsor for the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) in the United States until the end of the 2020 season, with an option to extend further, according to a press statement.
Cypher Language Services is an immigrant-owned language service provider based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with an office in the Minneapolis – Saint Paul, Minnesota area. Cypher has the capacity to secure linguists in over 150 languages and dialects. The Philadelphia-based language service providers deliver interpretation services in the Greater Philadelphia and twin cities areas and were the main sponsor for the successful season of the U23 team in the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL).
“Cypher Language Services LLC is very excited to announce our continued sponsorship of the Philadelphia Lone Star Football Club (PLSFC),” said Cypher Language Services LLC Co-Owners Juan Lara and Paul Rossert. At Cypher, we believe in giving back to our community and one of our goals has been to provide funding for community-based services and programs. As immigrants ourselves we have a special connection with the cause of PLSFC.
“It’s been a great experience working with Philadelphia Lone Star FC President Paul Konneh and his staff and we look forward to continuing to work with his team to increase awareness of PLSFC and their mission in the Philadelphia region.
“Finally, as huge soccer fans, we are very excited to sponsor the first team and continue to be part of the winning tradition of Philadelphia Lone Star Football Club,” they said.
Responding to the new partnership deal, PLSFC president Paul Konneh said they are excited to maintain the language service providers as their first Title Sponsor.
“It was nice seeing Paul Rossert attend nearly all our games last season and I was excited that he and Juan Lara are still on-board for another two seasons. Our club was founded by immigrants and nearly all of our current players are immigrants, so maintaining a long-term sponsorship deal with an immigrant-owned company like Cypher Language Services is very much welcoming,” President Konneh said.
As the team’s title sponsor, Cypher Language Services’ logo will be adorned on the front of the club’s NPSL team jerseys and the company will also have its logo placed around the stadium during all NPSL home games.
Philadelphia Lone Star FC will begin the 2019 NPSL season in early May and will play in the NPSL Northeast Keystone Conference. Last season, the team qualified for the playoffs for the very first time, losing in the semi-finals. The team was also ranked sixth nationally amongst 98 NPSL teams in the United States, the release indicated.
