The Heartland Soccer Field Marshals will be not only easy to spot with their all new bright red and black apparel, they’ll also be weather ready with new rain-proof jackets (also in red), quality warm-up pants (in black) and stylish and comfortable red polos, along with Minsky’s Sport /Heartland Soccer cobranded water bottles (also in bright red!) to keep the Field Marshals and other Heartland Soccer staff hydrated throughout tournament weekends!  The apparel and sport water bottles are co-branded with Heartland Soccer and “Minsky’s Sport” graphics!

Field Marshals will also be will be navigating the soccer fields in style with new “Gourmet on the Go!” branded golf carts promoting Minsky’s home delivery throughout the KC Metro area. If you spot a Field Marshal and have a question about a field, or if you’re needing a recommendation on your post-match meal, they will be able to point you to the nearest Minsky’s – our State Line, Metcalf, Lenexa and Shawnee locations are extra convenient toScheel’s Park!

As part of the relationship, Minsky’s is providing catered meals to Field Marshals, administrative staff and volunteers during tournaments, including the very first tournament of the season, the Fall Kickoff Classic starting on August 11th and continuing through Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017! From Minsky’s “Best in Kansas City” gourmet pizzas, to pastas, sandwiches, fresh salads and gluten free choices, Minsky’s will provide outstanding menu variety – and great taste – suitable for just about everyone.

Said Minsky’s General Manager Brent Wittrock, “After forming a great relationship with Sporting KC player Graham Zusi over the past few years, it was a natural next step to up our involvement in youth soccer with Heartland Soccer.” He continued, “Minsky’s has always used top quality, fresh ingredients to provide our customers not only the great taste they love, but also food that is better for them. When we say, ‘Eat well, live better’ we really mean it.”

“We are excited to have Minsky’s Pizza as important part of our partnership team at Heartland Soccer. Minsky’s sponsorship of our field marshal kits and cart visors is an incredible way to support youth soccer and the kids that play each week,” stated Heartland Soccer Executive Director Shane Hackett.  “Minsky’s is hard to beat with Sporting KC’s Graham Zusi as the Pizza Czar. We love and appreciate Minsky’s commitment to soccer in Kansas City.”

About Minsky’s: With 17 locations in the KC Metro area, Minsky’s is now Celebrating 41 years in business.

We flavor-it-up with our unique blend of aromatic herbs and seasonings and then add our crowd-favorite tangy and delicious house-made red sauce, fresh cut vegetables, the highest quality meats – all topped with 100% Wisconsin mozzarella cheese.
