An athlete, Sofia Huerta, becomes Ambassador via Signing Day Sports for use by 360 MAGAZINE

Signing Day Sports

Signing Day Sports the digital ecosystem that helps athletes get discovered and recruited for college sports by coaches across the country, announced today an expansion into men’s and women’s soccer, spearheaded by a roster of professional soccer ambassadors including USWNT standout and OL Reign Defender Sofia Huerta, Canadian Women’s National Team star and Portland Thorns FC forward Janine Beckie and 12-year MLS veteran Brad Evans.  

With this expansion, men’s and women’s high school soccer players, high school coaches, and college coaches now have access to Signing Day Sports’ innovative platform that is revolutionizing the recruiting process for student-athletes and high school and college coaches alike.  Signing Day Sports boasts almost 150,000 student-athlete profiles on the platform across all sports, in addition to thousands of high school coaches and college coaches representing more than 220 Div. I, II, III, and NAIA schools nationwide. 

“Our goal at Signing Day Sports is to always help student-athletes maximize their potential in the recruitment process through the unmatched access and expanded networks we have,” said John Dorsey, Signing Day Sports CEO. “We’ve already seen the difference our technology makes for student-athletes and coaches in football, baseball, and softball recruiting and are thrilled to expand our platform to cater to men’s and women’s soccer as we continue to impact the future of college sports recruiting.” 

As part of this launch, Signing Day Sports has signed notable professional soccer stars in Huerta, Beckie, and Evans as ambassadors, who will share their college recruiting stories and spread awareness for Signing Day Sports’ expansion into men’s and women’s soccer.  In addition to the soccer ambassadors, men’s and women’s soccer college coaches representing all Power Five Conferences – and several others across Div. I, II, III and NAIA – are now active on Signing Day Sports, including those leading teams ranked within the NCAA top 20 men’s and women’s programs.

“I’ve been lucky enough to take the sport I love and turn it into a career following successful collegiate and club stints. Teaming up with Signing Day Sports to raise awareness for the platform’s innovative technology that makes collegiate soccer more accessible to those who want to continue playing was a no-brainer for me,” said Huerta. “I want other student-athletes who are passionate about the game to have the opportunity to recognize their full potential and extend their careers through college and beyond.” 

Signing Day Sports was founded in 2020 by a group of former professional athletes and coaches who saw the need to improve the antiquated college sports recruiting landscape.  Student-athletes have the ability to upload video-verified measurables and testing, official fundamental and drill recordings, game schedules and stats, and interview questions to highlight the intangibles of their athletic character all in one app. High School and club coaches can manage rosters and depth charts, communicate internally with players and staff, remain aware of recruiting communications, and advocate for their athletes all in one place. College coaches and scouts can find recruits that meet any level of criteria, can plan out recruiting classes for years to come, and can trust and evaluate talent through video-verification and analysis in one single platform. With Signing Day Sports, more athletes, coaches, and recruiters will be able to find each other than ever before, facilitating and leading to more offers, scholarships, and successful programs on a national scale.

Maharishi x Reebok

Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announce their first collaboration, bringing Maharishi’s military design ethos to Reebok’s heritage-inspired Classic Leather Legacy AZ (GW4452, $150), available beginning June 10.

Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and focus on deploying products that are practical, long-lasting, and offer an unforgettable presence. For their first collaboration with fellow UK brand Reebok, Maharishi have applied this approach uniquely to the Classic Leather Legacy AZ, a modern interpretation of Reebok’s timeless Classic Leather running shoe inspired by the archival Aztec II and adapted with contemporary shaping and material application.

“The Classic Leather Legacy AZ looks futurist and modern whilst retaining what makes it an iconic shoe,” commented Maharishi. “A big part of our design ethos is exploring duality, so this shoe – being a design classic infused with ultra-modern sensibility – fits well.”

The sneaker draws inspiration from United States military flight suits and uniforms, featuring a nylon construction based on historic military jackets, contrasting black ripstop panels in reference to the olive/black patch insignia used on traditional camouflage uniforms, and 3M reflective highlights for added visibility seated atop the iconic Reebok gum sole.

The first Advertising Campaign of the new line dedicated to the art of home living transports the viewer into a dreamlike dimension where the objects of our everyday life meet inspiration and become pieces of unique design and creativity. The Blu Mediterraneo, Carretto Siciliano, Leopard and Zebra themes dominate the scene with their iconic patterns and references to Dolce&Gabbana’s most authentic DNA.

The models’ silhouettes delicately blend with their surrounding, bringing out the Collection’s uniqueness. The campaign’s pictorial style draws the spectator into the oneiric and artistic world of Dolce&Gabbana’s furnishing creations.

In the campaign’s video contributions, the poetic aspect is further emphasised by the words of a love letter: Dolce&Gabbana Casa thus becomes the ideal space in which emotions and sensations find expression through the creativity of special objects.

Founder Alexa McNeal was tired of only seeing the restrictive sizes that only made her feel bad about her body and everything that didn’t fit her right. She wanted to feel good in her bathing suits and knew that she could make one that fulfilled that desire, for herself and other women. 

Each item has an adjustable feature and ranges in sizes from XS to 4XL.

UTA × Curtis Brown Group

United Talent Agency (UTA), a global leader in talent, entertainment and sports, announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Curtis Brown Group, one of the UK’s largest and most prestigious literary and talent groups.

This alliance makes Curtis Brown Group the first prominent UK literary and talent representation group to join with a major global talent agency. For UTA, the deal significantly expands its global footprint in one of the world’s most important and thriving creative markets. Under the terms of the deal London-based Curtis Brown Group, founded in 1899, will continue to operate under its current name and highly regarded management, including CEO Jonny Geller. This structure will allow both Curtis Brown Group and UTA to continue their fruitful and longstanding relationships with other agency partners in the UK and US. 

The union is driven by a shared desire to ensure greater opportunities for clients across an increasingly global entertainment and culture landscape, in which traditional buyers and distributors such as studios and streaming services are expanding far beyond their home markets. The alliance provides Curtis Brown Group with resources to continue to build out its business, and the benefit of UTA’s expertise across a wide range of capabilities in such areas as brands, podcasts, digital talent, endorsements, media rights, data analytics and more. 

While the great majority of Curtis Brown Group’s business is serving UK clients in their home market, UTA and companies in the Curtis Brown Group have collaborated successfully together for many years, in some cases working with talent such as Damian Lewis, Lily James, Alicia Vikander, Bel Powley, as well as rising star Ncuti Gatwa, who the BBC just named the next Dr. Who. The two ventures also share representation of screenwriters such as David Farr (The Night Manager, Hanna), Georgia Pritchett (Succession, Veep and The Shrink Next Door), and Tony Roche (Succession, The Thick of It). 

For more than a century, Curtis Brown Group has been well known for its internationally recognized authors (including Margaret Atwood, Jojo Moyes, Lucy Foley, Lisa Jewell, Matt Haig, Nigella Lawson, and Ben Macintyre) and literary estates (including Ian Fleming, John le Carré, Daphne du Maurier, A.A. Milne, and John Steinbeck). Curtis Brown Group has grown and diversified over the last ten years, emerging as the UK’s top talent agency with a string of acquisitions of other leading UK talent companies, including Markham Froggatt & Irwin in 2020, Tavistock Wood in 2018, Ed Victor in 2017 and C&W in 2013. Curtis Brown is also home to the world’s first creative writing course run by an agency.

In addition to its eminence in publishing, Curtis Brown Group’s many other industry-leading divisions include its global talent practice (representing actors, presenters, comedians, and other performers), and a prestigious theatre, film and television department (representing leading screenwriters, directors, producers, playwrights, and production arts talent).

For UTA, founded in 1991, the move further accelerates the company’s momentum as it brings together ideas, opportunities and talent. This includes significant growth in its talent representation business as well as recent investments across entertainment, sports and marketing in leading ventures that continue to operate under their own names with ready access and close alignment to UTA’s global platform and capabilities. This ongoing strategic expansion has included taking a significant stake in 2019 in Klutch Sports Group, which represents top U.S. athletes, and the 2021 acquisition of MediaLink, a leading strategic advisory and marketing firm that serves the world’s leading brands.

David Kramer, Co-President of UTA, said: “This move is about the vanishing borders of the global entertainment business and our united determination to ensure artists and creators remain at the heart of the opportunities ahead. UTA and Curtis Brown Group have known each other and worked together for years, and we couldn’t be more excited to be taking this step together at a time when the UK’s creative industries are thriving. For UTA, this was driven by the profound respect we have for the Curtis Brown leadership, their deep roots in the UK, the team they’ve assembled, and their company culture. We’re coming together in a way that is designed to ensure Curtis Brown’s business and team – and their way of doing business in the markets they know best – continues to flourish and grow.”

Said Jonny Geller, CEO of Curtis Brown Group: “We have long admired UTA under the leadership of David Kramer and its CEO, Jeremy Zimmer. Curtis Brown’s deep understanding of the European market combined with their culture of collaboration and innovation offers our company and our clients many great opportunities. This partnership will allow Curtis Brown to grow and to respond to the demands of an increasingly globalised world. We have always prided ourselves on our ability to nurture new talent across all our departments and provide an open and inclusive culture, and we are excited to begin a new chapter in this wonderful company’s 123-year-old history.”

Jeremy Zimmer, Co-Founder and CEO of UTA, said: “The brand of Curtis Brown has been synonymous with great storytelling and rigorous artist representation for more than a century. We are thrilled to align with such a great team. As the world of media grows and contorts, UTA is looking for great partnerships to drive our growth. In Curtis Brown, we believe we have found just such a partnership.”

Curtis Brown has more than 240 employees and is expected to continue to grow as a result of this deal. No staffing reductions are anticipated due to this transaction. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Wimbledon’s Centre Court

This year, Wimbledon’s Centre Court turns 100. A century ago in 1922, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club vacated residence at Worple Road to a new home at Church Road, now the spiritual home of tennis.

To recognise the storied history that has unfolded upon the now hallowed turf, the AELTC has announced the release of The Centenary Collection – ten digital masterpiece collectibles, minted on the blockchain, for tennis fans and collectors to call their own. 

AELTC Communications and Marketing Director, Alexandra Willis, says the collection aims to edify the decades that have made Centre Court one of international sport’s most iconic stages.

“To celebrate 100 years of Centre Court with these unique digital collectibles, minted as NFTs, is a lovely contrast. Not only does this collection reflect the past, but, through the use of an innovation that has only begun to develop in the last 12 months, we are looking to the future, a timely reminder that how fans interact with sport will continue to evolve.

“It has been a great privilege for us to work on the creation of these artworks, which not only demonstrate a fascinating approach to memorialising these incredible passages of time, but with such beauty and creativity that they are worthy of the walls of the All England Club itself,” says Willis.

The Collection has been curated by Glorious Digital, a New Zealand based digital art studio and marketplace. Chief Executive Tim Harper says the artworks take inspiration not just from the on court history, but also from the culture, art, fashion and events of each decade.  

“Wimbledon is treasured by one of the world’s largest and most dedicated assemblage of fans, many of whom will already enjoy an appreciation of digital art. With these fans in mind, Glorious has worked with the AELTC to craft a masterpiece Centenary Collection immortalising the magnificent history and legacy of Centre Court. 

“Through the Wimbledon archives, we rediscovered photographs that capture some of The Championship’s most iconic moments. We then returned the images to a film contact sheet and enhanced them with handwritten calligraphy to illuminate the stories within. It was an intensive process, but well worth it – we are very proud of the result,” says Harper.

With each 1/100 for the 10 decades priced at £500, it’s likely the Collection will be quickly absorbed into Wimbledon’s global fanbase of millions, especially when a small number of the editions have already been whitelisted for some unnamed VIPs and a random selection within the Glorious Founding Membership.

Hopeful buyers will need to enter a ballot via HERE for the right to purchase.

Ballot entries will close on Middle Sunday, 3 July. Randomised entries will be drawn in the following days. Successful purchasers will be notified by email and have 48 hours to complete their purchase. If payment is not received within that time their successful ballot will be reallocated to another entrant.

To add to the excitement, purchasers cannot choose which decade of artwork they want to purchase. They’ll discover which masterpiece they have purchased on 10 July, the last day of the tournament, when The Centenary Collection will be officially released. 

The Championships 2022 begin Monday 27 June with the Centenary Collection ballot opening on Monday June 13.

How Erling Haaland boosts Manchester City’s potential success

As one of the best squads in the world, Manchester City is always known for its strength in its lineup. Manager Pep Guardiola is always blessed with the best talent possible and that has happened again with the signing of a Norwegian superstar striker, Erling Haaland. 

With years of experience playing for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, Haaland has proven that he is one of the most promising goal-scorers in the world. He was an amazing star player during his time at Dortmund and before he even played for the Yellow Wall, he was the star for RB Salzburg in Austria. 

At only 21 years of age, Haaland has the potential to become the best player in the world in the long term future. Now that he is at Man City, he has the biggest platform possible to become one of the world’s best players. He was already on his way to that level during his time with Dortmund but City’s team will help him cement a championship pedigree. 

If you are going to any website for football crypto betting, you should expect that Man City will come in as a favourite for almost any match. They have proven that with the talent that they have, they can win trophies. While the Champions League has continued to elude them, City is primed to become one of the legendary clubs that have won Europe’s top club competition. 

Haaland will become the club’s top goal-scorer

Man City has been thriving with their goal-scoring even without a true number nine. They have run a system with a free-flowing offence where anyone can score as long as they are in the right position. This will not happen anymore with Haaland in the lineup because they finally have a cornerstone who is well known for scoring countless goals. 

With Kevin De Bruyne serving as the team’s playmaker, you can expect that he will have a field day having a striker of Haaland’s quality play with him. KDB himself talked about how much he appreciates having a striker like Haaland on his team moving forward.

The Belgian midfielder said, ‘Erling Haaland is a top striker. His move should help us to grow as a team. Everybody expects a lot. They’ve always been looking for a number nine, but I think it’ll be good to have that striker that maybe scores 20-25 goals a season’.

Haaland fits in with Pep’s system

Pep Guardiola is one of the best managers of all time. That kind of title is not given to anyone just for the sake of it because Pep has done a stellar job of creating systems that best fit his teams. This was prominent during his time with Barcelona when he was the mind behind their signature ‘tiki-taka’ style with Lionel Messi as the focal point of the offence.

Now at City, Pep has done a good job of building a system despite the lack of a true striker over the past two seasons. With Haaland coming in, Pep will most likely revamp his system because he has to accommodate and maximise Haaland. The combo of this coach and player will instil fear into defenders because Pep has special plays in his backpocket for Haaland. 

Man City has its Agüero replacement

When Sergio Agüero left for Barcelona in 2021, Man City lost their best-ever player and striker. That was a large void that was not filled by any player until now. With Haaland’s arrival, Man City has one of the best replacements that you can ever get for a club legend. He is primed to become the best striker in the world in the long term future. He will surely bring trophies back to Manchester given that he’s such a phenomenal player in terms of talent and an imposing physique. 

Expect Man City to keep winning

Haaland already has a case to be called one of the best players in the world and with further training under Pep and stars like KDB, Haaland will only improve. If you are on any website for football crypto betting, never forget that City has a top striker who can change the complexion of any match. It is a tough time to be a defender, especially if they’re playing against Man City.
