Published Aug 23, 2019

August 23, 2019 – Los Angeles – The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is excited to announce a partnership with GK Glove Company, American distributor of KEEPER BALM®.

KEEPER BALM® is an industry leader in premium glove conditioners, and brings its passion for the goalkeeper's side of the game to the UPSL with a new one-year agreement.

As part of the partnership, every UPSL team will have access to GK Glove Company and KEEPER BALM® products, with every UPSL affiliated member team and player receiving a 40-percent discount.

United Premier Soccer League Commissioner Yan Skwara said, "We are very excited to announce our new partnership with KEEPER BALM as the Official Sponsor of the UPSL Goalkeeper of the Year Award. KEEPER BALM is a great product for goalkeeper gloves, and GK Glove Company really knows how to treat goalkeepers as they provide gloves, gear and KEEPER BALM to goalkeepers across the North America. We're very pleased to be moving forward with GK Glove Company and KEEPER BALM on a new one-year deal."

Founded in 2017, KEEPER BALM® is the only goalkeeper glove conditioner on the market that is guaranteed to make your gloves perform better, longer. KEEPER BALM's all natural, proprietary formula keeps gloves from ever drying out by protecting them from moisture-sapping minerals that get embedded in the pores of the latex foam thereby enhancing grip and increasing performance life indefinitely.

GK Glove Company Director of Operations and Creator of KEEPER BALM® Mike Slatton said, "I work tirelessly to provide exceptional products at great prices with excellent customer service. KEEPER BALM is made by me. I mix it, pack it, make the labels and ship it. It's the catalyst for everything else. I love the opportunity to be a sponsor and partner of the UPSL, and be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2019 Spring UPSL Goalkeeper of the Season Award."

GK Glove Company is a provider of independent brand, professional quality goalkeeper gloves and accessories. Ever Friday night, GK Glove Company gives away a pair of goalkeeper gloves or a stick of KEEPER BALM® to one follower. Watch Facebook LIVE at 9:30 p.m. EST for an opportunity to win.

The UPSL is in more than 75 different key soccer markets across 38 states, servicing thousands of players, coaches and employees.
