CHAMP Extends Global Partnership with Buffalo Communications

CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories – has extended its partnership with Buffalo Communications (Buffalo) to continue managing the company’s global golf PR and marketing programs.

Since teaming with Buffalo, CHAMP has received hundreds of editorial placements in leading consumer and trade media across the golf, sports and lifestyle sectors in the U.S., Canada, UK and continental Europe. They include sales-driving equipment reviews and company profiles, as well as honors like the just-announced GOLF Magazine “Techy Award” for the FLYteePRO.

“Buffalo prominently positions our brand so it’s top-of-mind among retailers and consumers,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “We remain committed to developing products with positive and lasting impacts on all players, and rely on Buffalo to spread our message worldwide.”

Awareness is building for the company’s next venture, a technologically-advanced grip collection set to launch in coming months. Excitement is high as feedback from media and PGA Tour players is exceptionally favorable.

“Ingenuity and strong leadership have propelled CHAMP to become the most recognized name in spikes and gain solid footing in other equipment categories,” says Rich Katz, Managing Director of Buffalo. “The Buffalo team is excited to help further grow consumer mindshare, retail acceptance and sales through highly-strategic communications.”

A pioneer in spike technology, CHAMP is The #1 Brand on Tour. Its famed spikes – including the popular ScorpionSTINGER™, ProStinger® and Zarma® models –provided superior traction and stability to 32 of golf’s last 44 major championship winners.

Beyond spikes, CHAMP has successfully expanded its wide range of products to include the award-winning Zarma FLYtee lines, FLIX Divot Repair Instrument and Pro-Lite Ball Retriever.

With more than 100 active distributors, CHAMP is the world’s largest manufacturer of replaceable spikes. The company is the dominant global brand in football, soccer, golf, baseball, cricket, rugby and other sports.
