WOBURN, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association and SBLI (The Savings Bank Mutual Life Insurance Company of Massachusetts), both deeply rooted in Massachusetts, have announced a new partnership beginning in 2024. Coinciding with Mass Youth Soccer’s 50th anniversary, this collaboration designates SBLI as Mass Youth Soccer’s official life insurance sponsor and grants naming rights for Progin Park in Lancaster, Massachusetts.
