The Massachusetts Pirates Online Pro Shop is set to launch the first week of June. To celebrate the start-up of the online store, the team will host a grand opening flash sale once the website store is live. Don’t worry Pirates fans, the classic teal and tan color schemes will be available to you shortly.
Along with the launch of the new Online Pro Shop, the Pirates will be introducing a completely redesigned website. It will be revamped with updated player stats, player headshots, and a fresh new look on Pirates Football. Like Online Pro Shop, the upgraded website should launch in the first week of June.
Jesse Heninger, Director of Marketing for the Pirates, is enticed by the increased merchandise revenue that should come from the launching of the Pro Shop.
“Having an Online Pro Shop will give fans across the country an opportunity to support the Massachusetts Pirates no matter where they are from,” Heninger said. “I think it’s wonderful to give the fans around the country as well as the family members of the players an outlet to get their Pirates gear. It’s a no brainer for the team to increase merchandise revenue while providing a service to Pirates Nation near and far.”
It is no secret that the Massachusetts Pirates have some of the smoothest color combinations in the National Arena League. President and Founder of the team Jawad Yatim is incredibly excited about the revamping and is eager to share Pirates pride to fans all across the United States.
“Now has been a good time for us to reflect and prioritize, and merchandise was a revenue stream we feel we could certainly improve upon,” Yatim said. “I think our color scheme and branding is the best in the business, and we made it a priority to simplify the shopping process for our fans and make our apparel and merchandise more readily available. We look forward to the launch with some good sales and hope to see our fans showing off their Pirate pride.”
