Discussing the initiative, Synergy Sports CEO Mark Silver said, “We have worked with college teams for over 12 years and our relationships are much more than just business.

Doing what is best for sports is at the heart of Synergy Sports’ business, so helping college sports return to competitive play and weather this storm was a very natural step for us to take.”
