AVID Soccer News Under Armour LogoBaltimore (June 10, 2010) Clarence Goodson of IK Start (Norway) and US National Team Defender signs an exclusive multi-year contract to endorse Under Armour’s growing line of soccer products.

Clarence is one of the top players to come out of the D.C. area, playing for two different high schools including a state championship.  His college ball was played at U of Maryland.  Goodson left Maryland after three years to play in the MLS.  He played for FC Dallas beginning his starting duties in 2005.  In 2007, he was selected by San Jose as part of the expansion draft.  However, he chose to try his luck in Europe.  Clarence began his Norwegian career in 2008 with IK Start.  His MLS rights are still held by the Earthquakes.

Goodson does not have much international experience.  His first cap was against Sweden in 2008 and continued on the CONCACAF qualifying squad.  He has two international goals, both against Honduras.

Under Armour is an unqualified success, growing from a maker of performance wear to a complete sporting goods manufacturer.  They now offer boots, protective pieces, men’s and women’s apparel.  Their boots are in the mid-range pricing and follow the balanced and power design philosophies.  They do not yet offer a full range to handle non-grass surfaces or soft ground.
