Red 11 Press Release –

Thursday, January 14, 2010

CHICAGO, IL – Chicago Red Eleven of the USL W-League officially announced today that the company has formed a partnership with sports communication company Resolution Sports. The two groups will now align in cross-promotional efforts, with Resolution Sports assuming the communication responsibilities for Chicago Red Eleven.

"I am excited to begin a partnership with Resolution Sports," owner Ted Gradel commented. "Chicago Red Eleven remains committed to providing opportunities for elite summer training and competition for accomplished female players, and we also look forward to another entertaining season for our fans in the western suburbs of Chicago. We believe our players serve as accessible role models to the young female athletes in our area, and we look forward to working with the professional staff at Resolution Sports to convey our mission to the community."

Resolution Sports was founded in latter 2008 by John Archibald after the concept of establishing a communication-based sports company came into his head on a train ride home from working one evening. The foundation of Resolution Sports was created that very night, and Resolution Sports LLC was fully licensed and operational within a matter of three weeks. The company is now building an arsenal of goal-oriented partners in the sports industry such as Chicago Red Eleven, and the company works directly with those partners in a collective pursuit of achieving personal and organizational goals. Within its first year of operation, Resolution Sports developed a national presence that originates in the Northeast and stretches as far west as California all the way to the southern tip of Florida.

"Speaking on behalf of Resolution Sports, I am very excited to be combining forces with Chicago Red Eleven," Archibald said of the partnership. "I have been in conversation with Ted Gradel, who is the owner of the franchise, for a few weeks now, and I immediately realized the first time we spoke that he and his staff have a strong commitment to being successful. That is exactly the type of organization in which we look to align Resolution Sports, and we will do everything in our power to assist Chicago Red Eleven in achieving the goals they have set for themselves."

Chicago Red Eleven played its inaugural season in the USL W-League in 2009, and the team is the affiliate club of the Chicago Red Stars of Women's Professional Soccer. Chicago Red Eleven competes in the Midwest Division of the Central Conference in the W-League and plays its home contests at Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois. The team finished the 2009 season with a cumulative 10-1-1 record and finished second in its division, also advancing to the W-League postseason.
