We here at Phil Long Lincoln of Colorado Springs are so excited to secure a partnership with the Colorado Springs Switchbacks for the 2016 United Soccer League Season.
To get the team around in style to in-town events and transporting the players is a Transit van with a sharp and unique graphic wrap, courtesy of Phil Long Lincoln. This van will also be proudly displayed at all home game day matches.
The Sales Manager of Phil Long Lincoln, Michael Gonzales, is extremely excited about the new partnership. "Soccer is a fantastic sport that needs representation here in the Springs and the international talent on the team is great!

This allowed the team to clinch a playoff berth in only its first year of existence! Holding 40,000 spectators, the Switchbacks FC home games are played at the newly renovated Switchbacks Stadium. With 24 teams, games televised locally on Comcast and nationally on YouTube, the USL league has over 2.7 million attendees across North America!
Mike Cimino, the Vice President and Partner of the Phil Long Family of Dealerships chimed in on the whole partnership, saying, "The Switchbacks bring a new level of high caliber talent to Colorado Springs and we couldn't b happier about our partnership with them."
Be on the lookout for events and tie ins with the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC throughout the year and hopefully far into the future! Good luck this season, Switchbacks!
