The legendary basketball coach, John Wooden really said it best.
"It is amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit."
Today marks the 5-year anniversary of the launch of the upstart sports tech and sports apparel company from Staten Island that revolutionized organized sports around the world, from New York to New Guinea. Within that time Wooter can credit their success to a dedicated company vision, hardworking staff, trusted partners — and a passionate and brand loyal fan base throughout the world of sports.
What started by providing local and area rec leagues with everything from customized professional basketball jerseys and uniforms (Wooter Apparel) to a their own digital platforms (Wooter App) has grown to include a host of sponsorship and collaborations with an impressive list of pro athletes, sports organizations and foundations, teams, and leagues, college and youth programs, and more.
Since 2015, Wooter has teamed-up to design and produce sublimated jerseys/uniforms and digital platforms with Master P, Floyd Mayweather, Kawhi Leonard (KL2 Mammoths), NBA Alumni Member, Smush Parker, Carmelo Anthony, Hunter Pence Baseball Academy, the John McEnroe Tennis Academy, Jeff Teague (Team Teague AAU Basketball) and the J.J. Watt Foundation. Wooter Apparel has also created gear for the Brunson League, Ballin’ 4 Peace, the San Diego Strike Force of the Indoor Football League, Florida Atlantic University (Lacrosse), and Reedly College (Football).
That’s not even scratching the surface for Wooter, Wooter Apparel, and the Wooter App.
Wooter has worked with sports teams and leagues around the US and globally in over 25 countries, including Japan, Tanzania, Antigua, Grenada, Malta, the Netherlands and Australia, to name a few. In the the last five years, Wooter and Wooter Apparel have also customized jerseys and uniforms for the annual Balling 4 Lupus event, ABA teams (Baltimore Hawks, Richmond Elite, Carolina Cougars, ATL Rappers), the BRICK League (Ohio Pro-AM), Basketball Beauties League, Gotham Hoops Invitational, Crunchtime Basketball, East Side Hoops, and youth sports teams and programs like Prep Ball All-Stars, Irvington High School (New Jersey), Black Ops Cadets, Ball Out Group, Ottawa High School, the Oak Cliff Astros, and so many others who have represented Wooter in the game.
From all sides of the business, Wooter has remained a trendsetter. Back in 2015, Wooter was merely a year into their start-up infancy when they emerged as a leader by becoming the first sports apparel company to accept Bitcoin as a payment form. Wooter didn’t stop there. Two years later, Wooter began helping shape a global outreach cause that became the seed for Wooter Africa, while also paving the way in 2018 for “the big give back”. This was also the chance for Wooter to announce they are partnering with Seed Invest to offer people the opportunity to “own a piece of the pie”. The company anted-up by pledging $2.5M over the next three years towards donations and sponsorships for sports programs all over the world. Wooter is constantly looking for ways to innovate and remain forward thinking, resulting in offering online merch shops from popular YouTubers, E-Sports Gamers, and Social Media Influencers.
Last year also marked a first for Wooter when it was announced that Baltimore pro basketball standout guard Aquille Carr had signed with Wooter Apparel, becoming the very first athlete signed to the brand with the design and creation of Carr’s own AC3 clothing line.
So how does Wooter plan to commemorate these big wins over the last five years?
