KTTP RADIO EP. 54 | BEN HOOPER TALKS THE ASSOCIATION

In the studio this week Drew connects with Ben from Bumpy Pitch and our own Rich Gordon to talk about our collaboration, The Association, a pioneer event of its kind. Major influencers and brands within the soccer community draft teams and play pickup soccer every Thursday night amidst a taco stand and open bar in Los Angeles. The Association is pushing the culture through influential brands and artists in and around the game.

Each week brands take turns with an art instalation of their choosing that best showcases their talents and what they are all about. The guys mull over the process of establishing such an event and the numerous hurdles they battled trying to get it up and running. To check out more about it, visit The Association LA.

They also debate Wayne Rooney signing with DC United and what this could mean for the MLS moving forward. Are they bringing on Rooney in hopes he can spark some excitement back into DC United? Is he thinking MLS is a retirement league?

Listen up as the guys weigh in:

KTTP RADIO EP. 52 WITH TENS CLUB FOUNDER LUCAS SHANKS

This week Drew, Rich and Alex chatted with founder Lucas Shanks about the vision and inspiration behind his brand, TENS CLUB, born from the culture surrounding the No. 10 in football and in life.

Lucas has opened the organic doors of design, drawing concepts from players who wore the number and expanding beyond that to players Shanks liked, and those who went against the grain. Running with a list of topics and things they want to create, the brand releases one item on the tenth of every month, highlighting the overarching theme they felt passionate about.
