"This sweepstakes promotion is a great way for Uniroyal Tire to reach out to youth soccer and its players," explained Tim Jamison, Uniroyal brand director. "Julie is a fantastic role model for kids and their parents alike and she represents the best in U.S. athletics and truly exemplifies the word 'professional'."
"I love working with young kids on the soccer field," explained Foudy. "This sweepstakes will create so much excitement with the local leagues and is just one example of how Uniroyal has supported the sport both on and off the field."
