TAMPA, Fla. – The United Soccer League announces a multiyear partnership with Falcon Structures, which becomes the latest addition to the USL Preferred Supplier Program as the Official Shipping Container-Based Structure Supplier of the USL. The agreement with the Texas-based company covers the USL Championship, USL Super League, USL League One, USL W League, USL League Two, USL Academy, and USL Super Y League.
Falcon Structures launched in 2003 as a small rental business and has grown into an industry leader in its field, offering a bold new direction for offsite modular construction. The company’s designs for modified shipping containers, turning them into structures for storage, living, and workspace, have attracted a large customer-base. Falcon Structures has previously produced a wide variety of projects, from simple air-conditioned storage units to block-like building elements for multi-story sports stadiums.
“It’s wonderful to welcome Falcon Structures to the USL Preferred Supplier Program,” said USL Senior Vice President of Corporate Development & Partnerships Josh Keller. “The innovative concepts the group brings to project construction and management go hand in hand with the stadium development initiatives currently in progress across the USL landscape. We believe the ideas Falcon Structures offers will be a tremendous asset to many of our clubs.”
Included among the projects Falcon Structures previously led was the construction of Fortress Obetz Sports Stadium, a 6,500-capacity venue on the outskirts of Columbus, Ohio. Through its innovative design work, Falcon Structures earned numerous awards from the Modular Building Institute.
"I can't wait to see the impact shipping container-based structures will have on this growing organization," says Stephen Shang, CEO and Co-founder of Falcon Structures. "Whether constructing new facilities or supporting existing complexes with locker rooms, concession stands, press boxes, restrooms, and more, we're thrilled to join the USL and its cohort of industry-leading companies in the USL Preferred Supplier Program."]”
Through its Preferred Supplier Program, the USL connects suppliers with new franchise owners and existing USL clubs to deliver the best possible experience for fans across North America. Preferred suppliers are “Best in Class” companies that provide services and products to professional franchises and stadium developers and must meet the USL’s strict quality standards. The USL is currently in discussions with suppliers that support stadium development, as well as the buildout of team front offices and operations.
