It is also very exciting to welcome them as the new presenting sponsor of our Long Island Cup competition, and we are looking forward to building a long and dynamic business partnership with them,” commented LIJSL President Anthony Maresco.
“Having enjoyed the amazing experience of coaching one of the League’s clubs, that actually got to the finals, I personally know just how exciting this tournament is for everyone involved and how it benefits our local community,” explained Steve Goldman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Petro Home Services. “That's why Petro is proud to be a corporate partner and sponsor of the Long Island Junior Soccer League and Long Island Cup.
