FULLERTON, Calif. (August 24, 2021) – Capelli Sport is proud to announce a new partnership with the Cal South Referee Program to become their Official and Exclusive Uniform and Apparel Supplier effective immediately. Capelli Sport referee uniforms follow the approved design of the U.S. Soccer Federation Referee Program and can be worn to service all Cal South tournaments, leagues, and beyond.

Capelli Sport is also the exclusive uniform provider for the Professional Referee Organization and many other state associations providing top class quality product at a reduced price compared to other competitors.

With every purchase, a percentage will go towards Cal South’s referee program providing education and training for thousands of referees in Southern California, compliments of Capelli Sport and Cal South Referee Program’s multi-year agreement.

Cal South Referee Administrator and former FIFA / MLS Referee, Juan Guzman said:

“We are excited to partner with Capelli Sport to service our referee program. The majority of our referee registrations are new referees and at the grassroots referee license level servicing our local soccer community. Our referees can take advantage of a quality approved product at a reduced price compared to other brands. The key to providing quality referees is constant recruitment, training, education, mentoring, and retention, and this agreement will provide funding for our developmental programs with every sale.”

President and CEO of Capelli Sport, George Altirs said:

“Another referee partner added to our network – Cal South. With the launch of our referee business, Capelli Sport is honored to enter the market on the West Coast. We look forward to providing Cal South and their community with our high-quality and U.S. Soccer-approved apparel.”
