The $3,700 sponsorship would have benefited the youth soccer program this fall.
The Wentzville Parks Board learned Monday night that a sponsorship offered by Sam's Club for the youth soccer program had to be declined. Recreation Superintendent Dottie Phillips explained that the sponsorship, which would have amounted to about $3,700, would have allowed the Sam's Club logo to appear on the back of the soccer shirts, on the trophies and banners on the fields. Sam's Club would also have provided "Soccer Mom" and "Soccer Dad" shirts for the parents. Sam's Club was particularly interested in the soccer program because it coincided with the store's opening, Phillips said. Last week, however, Sam's Club asked for a signed contract for the sponsorship, and that was a game-changer. "We don't have the time we need to get things …
