Albuquerque Sol FC took home three major awards at the 2016 PDL Winter Summit in Tampa, Fla. last week where the league’s executives and coaches meet to prepare for the upcoming season.
Sol FC won a Golden Scarf Award for Best New Revenue Generating Idea, for the Sol’s work in creating a bi-weekly TV Show (Soccer Talk w/ the Sol) as well as a brewery and coffee shop publication called What’s Brewin. The Sol also collected awards for Best Static Ad (for a billboard done in conjunction with Sunpower by Positive Energy Solar) and Best Video with the TV Commercial filmed by local creative agency, Nijian Productions.
This is the 2nd time that the Sol have come back from the Annual General Meetings with Hardware. In 2014, after our first season, Sol FC finished runner up for new franchise of the year, falling just short of Lane United FC of Eugene, Oregon.
