Kenmore-based adult soccer association adopts new soccer ball

Baden Sports, Inc., today announced its Lexum soccer ball has been selected as the official ball of the Kenmore-based Washington State Adult Soccer Association (WSASA), effective immediately.

The multi-year adoption ensures that all in-state competitions sponsored by the WSASA will be contested using Baden’s high-quality Lexum SX551-CPL game ball. Newly designed for this year, the ball features a hand-stitched polyurethane cover for exceptionally soft touch, performance and control, and is manufactured using an innovative construction process that ensures superior roundness, strength and shape retention. The ball also is treated with Baden’s proprietary RainShield™ seam sealant to prevent water absorption and allow for maximum playability in wet conditions.
“We’re a family owned company with deep roots in Washington, so we take special pride in partnering with local organizations whose members live, work and play in the same communities that mean so much to us,” said Michael Schindler, CEO, Baden Sports. “We’re excited to be selected as the official ball of the WSASA and look forward to making our Lexum soccer ball an integral part of the playing experience for both recreational and competitive participants for years to come.”
The WSASA is comprised of more than two dozen soccer leagues and offers adult players a safe, fun and rule-abiding environment in which to enjoy the game.
“We are excited about our new partnership with Baden. It is wonderful to deal with a family owned company that is located in the Seattle area,” said Timothy Busch, President, WSASA. “This sponsorship will also provide our players, teams and leagues an opportunity to buy high-quality soccer balls from a local company. We’re looking forward to a long-term relationship with Baden.”
