Wecando Print joined the Miami Dolphins Touchdown Club in 2013 and has become an official sponsor for the 2014 Miami Dolphins Season.



Wecando Print is a full service branding company established in 2003. They specialize in printing, promotional products, embroidery, screen printing, banners, fulfillment services and company stores. Wecando Print is headquartered in Broward County, but imports and exports products all over the World.

Nick Mandich, COO of the Dolphins Touchdown Club says, “Wecando Print attended our luncheon a couple times, with guests from several other companies each time, and then joined us in Tampa for the Monday Night Football game, Dolphins vs. Buccaneers. We saw that there was a great fit between our organizations. We are looking forward to building equally strong relationships with Wecando’s other clients and partners as well.”

Tom Letourneau, Wecando Print’s President commented, “Our relationship with the Miami Dolphins has been a great success right from the start. All aspects of our relationship with the Dolphin’s Organization; entertaining existing clients in our suite, sharing the Dolphins Business Alliance experience with clients and new prospects and participating in the Dolphins Cycling Challenge have been personally and professionally successful. That coupled with the great business contacts and friends we have made through these experiences drove us to want to become a stronger member of the Dolphin’s family.

When the Dolphins Business Alliance Director, Patrick Sullivan, suggested we meet Nick and see what the Touchdown Club was like, we knew instantly that it would be just as beneficial as the rest of the Dolphins experiences and we are not disappointed.

We love the lunches and the chance to meet childhood heroes like Bob Greise, Don Shula, Mercury Morris, Kim Bokamper, Joe Rose and more. The Monday Night Game was a great networking event and a great time in spite of the final score. We are looking forward to participating in the fishing and golf tournaments and other Miami Dolphin Touchdown Club sponsored events. I really want to thank Patrick Sullivan for showing us the way to the Dolphins Touchdown Club and thank you, Nick Mandich, for being such a welcoming host.”

Soccer Industry Veteran Tom Mulroy Named Team President with Tim Robbie Turning Focus to Team Personnel and Stadium Development


Strikers primary outline Strikers Announce Pursuit of Soccer Specific Stadium FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Dec. 4, 2012) – Traffic Sports, the ownership group of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, has appointed Tim Robbie to the position of Managing Director of Team Personnel and Stadium Development with the task of securing a long-term home at a soccer-specific stadium in South Florida. Assuming the position of Team President will be Tom Mulroy, an industry veteran with ties to the South Florida soccer community reaching back more than 35 years.

“The success of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers requires a facility which enables the team to give the fans, sponsors and media the experience they expect in professional sports today,” said Aaron Davidson, President of Traffic Sports USA. “With the growth of the NASL and the majority of teams building, planning or recently completing expansions or renovations, adding Tom [Mulroy] to allow Tim [Robbie] to focus on this crucial phase was a natural and necessary step to ensure the Strikers achieve this goal.”

“Traffic Sports has given me a mandate to seek a permanent, first class home for the Strikers,” said Tim Robbie. “Our top priority is to work with the city of Fort Lauderdale to renovate Lockhart Stadium as part of the overall development of the area. However, we are prepared to explore any and all options for a new soccer facility in the South Florida area. Given the numerous meetings and conversations I have had on the matter, I am optimistic our efforts to find a worthy, long-term home for the Strikers will be successful.”

“It’s an honor to serve as the president of one of the most historic soccer franchises in America,” said Tom Mulroy. “It’s very exciting to become president of the club with the growth of the NASL and to have the opportunity to work side by side with Tim Robbie to fulfill this commitment of establishing a permanent home stadium for the Strikers. I am thrilled to be part of it all.”

Robbie has served as president of the Strikers since 2011, when the team tripled its average attendance from the previous year and ended the season as runners-up in the NASL Championship Series. In 1987, Robbie’s father, Joe Robbie, secured 115 million dollars in private financing to build the current home of the Miami Dolphins, Sun Life Stadium. Tim Robbie served as President of the Miami Dolphins from 1990-94 and will bring that experience to his new position within the Strikers organization.

Tom Mulroy has been with Traffic Sports since 2009 when he was hired to lead its grassroots and sponsorship activation division. This included Traffic assuming joint ownership of Copa Latina and Fiesta Cup, two of the leading Hispanic soccer tournaments in the country, which Mulroy founded more than 20 years ago. tom Strikers Announce Pursuit of Soccer Specific Stadium

Mulroy has been actively involved in Traffic’s efforts to grow the NASL and Strikers. As team president, Mulroy will assume the overall responsibilities for the club on and off the field. Mulroy is known as “Soccer Tom” in United States and international soccer circles due to his participation in soccer at all levels throughout his career. Mulroy has been a South Florida community soccer leader for the last 25 years highlighted in part by serving as a member of the 1996 Olympic Soccer Games Executive Committee, organizing the Ball Run for the 1996 Olympics soccer tournament and serving on the Miami 2018–2022 World Cup Bid Committee.

“The combination of Tim Robbie and Tom Mulroy leading the Strikers gives us one of the most experienced soccer management teams in the country,” said Davidson. “Their experience and love for South Florida, the Strikers and the sport of soccer makes them the ideal team to take the Fort Lauderdale Strikers to the next level.” Both Tom Mulroy and Tim Robbie will be available for individual media interviews today. Please contact Ken Mendonca, kmendonca@strikers.com or 954-547-7567, to schedule a time. 2013 Strikers season tickets are now on sale.

Veteran sports executive to lead expanding NASL into its third season

MIAMI, Fla. (November 27, 2012) – The resurgent North American Soccer League (NASL) will kick off its third season in the spring of 2013 with a new Commissioner at the helm. Veteran sports executive Bill Peterson will lead the expanding nine-team NASL into a new era of soccer, while establishing the league on the sporting landscape.

Peterson, who will assume his role immediately, is no stranger to North American soccer having worked closely with MLS teams when he was the Senior Vice President of AEG Sports and Managing Director of the Home Depot Center from 2000 to 2006. Peterson helped oversee the management of numerous MLS teams and the development of soccer-specific stadiums across the country.

“We conducted a global search and an intense interview process to ensure we selected the right Commissioner for the NASL as we enter this next important growth phase for our league,” commented Chairman of the NASL Board of Governors Aaron Davidson.

“Bill’s diverse breadth of management experience in the US and abroad at governing bodies, leagues, teams, stadia and one of the leading hospitality companies gives him the ability to lead by example and align everyone’s interests in order to achieve our individual and collective goals. With Commissioner Peterson, we look forward to accelerating the positive financial results of our existing teams and continuing to usher in new teams in strategic markets with owners who embrace our vision and have the wherewithal to succeed at the highest possible level.”

Peterson said: “There is an opportunity here to cement the NASL as a league that can thrive and expand while providing compelling soccer for the game’s fans.

“The roots of the NASL triggered a soccer explosion in North American in the 1970s and I am delighted to be leading this new chapter as we take the league and its teams forward into an exciting future.”

As Peterson becomes the league’s next Commissioner, one of the iconic teams of the early days of the NASL, the New York Cosmos, will return to the league in 2013 and future expansion teams have been announced for Virginia and the Canadian capital Ottawa. The league is poised to announce season-openers for the 2013 season when the Tampa Bay Rowdies will defend the NASL title having dramatically defeated Minnesota Stars FC on penalty kicks to lift the 2012 championship.

Most recently Peterson provided advisory and event services to a variety of clients in Canada and the United States through his own firm Solve4. Peterson is the Chairman of the USA Cycling Board of Directors and a member of the USPRO Cycling Board of Trustees and served briefly as COO of the UFL. He was the Executive Vice President of Centerplate, the North American market leader for managing food and beverage, retail, restaurant, and events in sports facilities, convention centers, and entertainment complexes. He spent six years working with a variety of teams, facilities and sporting events while Senior Vice President at AEG in Los Angeles. Peterson spent almost a decade working for the National Football League where he became the President of NFL Europe having been the General Manager of the league’s Amsterdam Admirals.
