PODS Scores Big with the Brunswick Soccer Tournament
Now in it’s 9th year, the Brunswick Fall Classic has been the largest soccer tournament in North East Ohio for the past few years. With 200 teams converging from all over Ohio, as well as surrounding states, they come to compete at various field locations in and around Brunswick. It takes a tremendous amount of organization to handle the influx of thousands of soccer players for the November 2 and 3, as well as their families who come to cheer them on, and the logistics of having hundreds of games run smoothly.
This is where Ed McCrady, owner of PODS of Northeast Ohio, was able to step in. Ed donated PODS brand storage containers so the tournament staff and volunteers would have a place to store the necessary equipment (golf carts), awards (trophies for championship games), cones (for parking), tables and chairs (for the main tent) and any extra needs for the soccer complex and requirements for the soccer tournament.
“The PODS containers are truly a blessing as we do not have to load and unload all weekend regarding the needs of the soccer site. We can just load the PODS containers and use them for the weekend as they are placed close the main tent,” says Jeff Petrenko. “As the tournament director, it has made my job so much easier knowing I have the PODS containers in place since we have multiple locations. The PODS units can be loaded up with the necessary needs of the site versus trying to distribute everything the morning of the tournament.”
Ed McCrady responded, “Jeff and his team do a fantastic job managing an event this large that can bring in so many people into the community, especially with the hotels and restaurants in the area. PODS is happy to be able to support them in their efforts.”
The Brunswick Classic Tournament has also teamed up with the Brunswick Food Pantry. They hope the teams will consider this great opportunity to learn the importance of giving back by donating items to the Brunswick Food Pantry. With 200 teams participating, they can Fill the Shelves for the hungry families of the community! Items will be collected per team and handled by the coach at the Fall Classic registration night on November 1 or brought to the main tent during the tournament.
