"The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails." - John Maxwell

OUR HISTORY

Arocam Sports began operations with the acquisition and opening of WeGotSoccer in 1994. Launched to address the needs of a rapidly growing youth soccer consumer driven marketplace, WeGotSoccer has enjoyed national success over the past 25 years in great part due to our emphasis on customer service and engagement. WeGotSoccer has been an industry pioneer leading the charge to innovate the way consumers shop and how team equipment is fulfilled at all levels.

Building on the foundation set by WeGotSoccer, in 2016 Arocam Sports launched Player Printing, an on-line B2B distribution partner for Sporting iD, a global name and number licensee, which services over 140 soccer specialty accounts in both the US and Canada.

Shortly thereafter, Arocam Sports announced a partnership with Univision Deportes to execute their online fan shop - TUDN Fanshop. A LigaMX centric online experience for the 50 million Univision viewers who tune in each week to watch LigaMX games, TUDN Fanshop is quickly becoming the #1 Hispanic outlet for the sale of licensed jerseys and customization on the web.

Looking ahead, Arocam Sports is excited to introduce WeGotTeam, which will position the company as the go-to provider of all field and court sport apparel needs for teams and clubs across the country.

A sportsman through and through, Michael is an avid Flyers’ hockey fan who is willing to support the Bruins in an effort to ensure playoff hockey is local, thinks the MLB American League should be outlawed and he last saw an NBA game with Bird and Dr J.
