Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Partners with Dyehard to Create New Merchandising Program
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Dyehard Fan Supply have entered into an agreement to merchandise official PRCA and National Finals Rodeo products beginning this summer 2020.
Dyehard, a retail solutions provider specializing in events, retail and e-commerce, will manage PRCA merchandising programs and experiences at rodeos across the country as well as have a retail presence at their annual NFR event in Las Vegas. Additionally, Dyehard will be the official PRORODEO e-commerce (shop.prorodeo.com) and wholesale operator elevating the product assortment available to fans year round.
“PRORODEO fans love to wear their passion for the sport. Dyehard Fan Supply is going to provide incredible merchandise that helps our fans display that passion, and we’re looking forward to that.”Paul Woody PRCA Vice President of Business Development
Dyehard will be instrumental in providing the newest, on-trend merchandise collections for PRCA while also keeping a pulse on unique hot-market opportunities that may be unique to a certain rodeo and/or region. Dyehard’s commitment to fans will include paying careful attention to the in-market needs and what local, regional and national fans want in terms of merchandise. Dyehard will offer an extensive, quality assortment through a variety of vendors and price points, resulting in a wide selection to meet consumer demands. In addition, creating a new and exclusive private label for PRORODEO that will only be available at their official stores.
“We’re incredibly honored to have been selected as an official merchandising partner for PRORODEO.”Scott Killian Dyehard CEO
“The Dyehard Fan Supply team is particularly excited about working with the largest and oldest rodeo-sanctioning body in the world, a true American sport, based on the needs and customs of those who settled the great American West. We look forward to rolling out the merchandising program as soon as possible.”
Teall Capital Partners, a private equity company based in Winston-Salem, N.C., and Atlanta, Ga., created Dyehard Fan Supply in late 2017 after acquiring several companies offering an expansive national network of best-in-class merchandise capabilities. Teall anticipates additional future investments that will contribute to the top-quality retail experience for fans and customers.
Dyehard Fan Supply has handled merchandising programs for many of America’s most notable sporting events and organizations, including Olympic Games, NBA Finals, World Series, Davis Cup tennis, MLB All-Star Games, America's Cup, the U.S. Open, the USTA Jr. Team Tennis & League National Championships, the TCS New York City Marathon, and numerous professional and college football championships and bowls.
“I’ve had first-hand experience working with Dyehard team, and I can assure PRCA rodeo fans that they can look forward to a best-in-class merchandising experience from a company that offers the highest standards of customer service in the industry.”Ben C. Sutton, Jr. Chairman and managing partner of Teall Capital Partners
and former IMG College chairman and CEO
“Since its formation in late 2017, Dyehard has written a completely new merchandising playbook for athletics programs and at a growing number of major sporting and professional programs.”
“I have no doubt that the talented team at Dyehard will continue its fast-paced, customer-focused path to success across the rodeo tour. I believe we will continue to see great things from Dyehard Fan Supply as it expands its footprint across America.”
