What does Sports Endeavors, Inc. has to say about their company?
In 1984, it was born as a high-school class project in Durham, North Carolina. Today it’s the largest soccer, lacrosse, and rugby retailer in the world.
It all began when Mike Moylan, an 18-year-old soccer player and fan, decided he wanted to put together a catalog, a place where people like him could easily find the best gear in the game. With the help of his family (including brother and current COO Brendan Moylan), Mike ultimately turned his idea into the multi-channel, multi-sport business known today as Sports Endeavors Incorporated (SEI).
