The Missouri Athletic Club Hermann Trophy announced a partnership today with Amplified Soccer. Amplified Soccer will provide a range of marketing services to grow the brand and its national reach. As part of the partnership, Amplified Soccer has developed and launched a new website for the prestigious award at www.machermanntrophy.org and will be working to broadcast and drive sponsor revenue for the award and banquet.
For more than two decades, the Missouri Athletic Club has been able to establish college soccer’s version of the Heisman Trophy. The winners have led their teams to NCAA Division I titles and starred in professional and international competitions. The MAC has honored some of the biggest names in American soccer history. Michelle Akers, Alexi Lalas, Mia Hamm, Tony Meola and Claudio Reyna are just a few of the past winners to visit the MAC to claim the prestigious crystal soccer ball trophy.
“The MAC is committed to recognizing and celebrating the incredible accomplishments and hard work of the top athletes in the college game. I am excited about the opportunity to work with Amplified Soccer as we work to enhance the visibility and marketability of the award,” stated Jim Wilson, Missouri Athletic Club Director of Communications.
The process of selecting a winner begins at the start of the college soccer season when a list of potential nominees is compiled by a nominating committee. Near the end of the collegiate regular season, 15 players whom the committee considers the best in Division I soccer are announced as semifinalists for the award. That list is then voted on by men's and women's Division I soccer coaches through an online voting process.
The MAC hosts an annual banquet each January for players, coaches and their families to present the Hermann Trophy to the top male and top female player in college soccer. In recent years, the format has expanded to include the top three finalists.
“We are excited to partner with the Missouri Athletic Club. The award has a long and prestigious history in American soccer and we are proud to be able to help recognize the hard work, dedication, and tremendous skill of college soccer’s greatest athletes.” said Chris Burt, Amplified Soccer Founder and Partner. “This partnership helps drive forward the Amplified Soccer Athlete brand and is part of our growing grassroots client list for sponsor activation and digital ad network.”
