METUCHEN, NJ – United Women’s Soccer (UWS) and Duktig Brand have announced a multi-year partnership between the two organizations. The national pro-am league is excited to team up with the designers of soccer-specific waterproof notebooks, notepads and accessories for coach & player planning, reflection and development on an exclusive basis. UWS is also proud to continue to partner with women-owned businesses as Duktig Brand joins Techne Futbol (a soccer training app founded by former U.S. Women’s National Team star Yael Averbuch) in that regard.
“We continue to be true to our goal in supporting great products and brands that are led by women entrepreneurs. Tiffany Weimer and Adelaide Gay have created a product brand with Duktig that reflects their passion for soccer that rings true for all of us,” said UWS Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer Roberto Aguas. “By giving UWS clubs and team access to Duktig’s flagship MYTRAINER and TRAINER DLX soccer notebooks, as well as all their complementary offerings, we hope to have the coaches and players in our league have a consistent resource to document their passion for the game.”
While playing professionally overseas, Duktig Brand Co-Founders Adelaide Gay and Tiffany Weimer wanted a soccer-specific notebook for their own personal use and began the process of designing and purchasing the perfect solution. In the past two years, Duktig Brand has sold more than 50,000 notebooks in all 50 states of the United States as well as Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, France, Spain, Russia, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and more.
“We are very excited to partner up with UWS and support their efforts,” said Gay. “It has been fantastic to see the growth of women’s soccer throughout our own careers. Growing up there was sometimes a pro league, sometimes not, and most women’s soccer careers ended in college because there simply wasn’t anywhere left to play.
“We appreciate the expansion of the women’s game and UWS’ recognition of and commitment to being an engine behind the growth of the women’s game here in the United States and Canada. We are looking forward to seeing all the work that they will be doing and hope we can be a part of it!”
The goal of Duktig Brand is to create products that are affordable and accessible while using the highest quality materials they can possibly find. The company has designed a wide variety of waterproof and weather-resistant notebooks, notepads and other products to outfit the coach or player for any season. From coach education to producing students of the game, Duktig Brand believes in the power of a single notebook to amplify your contribution to the game of soccer.
Gay has played professionally for nine years and is currently competing for FC Nordsjaelland in the Danish Kvindeliga. Adelaide has won an NCAA National Championship with the University of North Carolina, two National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Championships, an Elitettan title in Sweden and the Icelandic Cup. She holds a USSF C-License and has a BS in Business Administration from UNC.
Weimer recently retired from her 12-year-long professional career. Tiffany is the Girls Academy Coach at Oakwood Soccer Club in Connecticut and the Director of Operations for Yale University Women’s Soccer. Some of her accomplishments include: winning an NWSL Championship with the Portland Thorns; playing in the UEFA Champions League with Fortuna Hjørring; competing for Santos in Brazil; and starting the women’s soccer-specific Our Game Magazine (2010-2016).
