July 14, 2014.  Colorado Springs, Colorado.  USA Wrestling announced today that it has added another corporate sponsorship to its roster, inking a multi-year agreement with FlipsWrestling.  Under the terms of the agreement, FlipsWrestling’s innovative headphones – which turn into HD speakers with a “flip” – are now the Official Audio Headphone of USA Wrestling.

“Over the past year, we have increased our efforts to partner with companies that support wrestling, and FlipsWrestling certainly fits that description,” said Harris Kalofonos from USA Wrestling’s Partnership Marketing department.  “They have invested heavily in our top athletes, and we are excited that they chose to also invest in our efforts to support wrestling.  The custom USA Wrestling headphones that FlipsWrestling designed are very cool, and, in our opinion, will be a great addition to allowing our USA wrestlers to #BeHeard!”

“We can’t think of a better announcement to kick-off the second year for us than this one,” noted FlipsWrestling’s Rocco Mansueto.  “For me, personally, it is very satisfying – as a longtime competitor – to develop a partnership with USA Wrestling.  We believe in our investments in our signature athletes, and believe that this investment, too, will provide great benefits to both sides, and to the sport of wrestling.”  Mansueto concluded, “We share USA Wrestling’s opinion that the signature USA Wrestling headphones are a great addition to the other cool stuff that USA Wrestling supplies to its athletes.”

Under the terms of the deal, in addition to the custom headphones and “official USA Wrestling partner” title, FlipsWrestling and USA Wrestling will partner on a variety of marketing and activation plans.
