Pop Warner and Sideline Gear Announce Partnership

LANGHORNE, PA & WOODSTOCK, GA - Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc., the nation’s oldest and most prominent youth football, cheer and dance organization, and Sideline Gear, a portable stadium chair manufacturer, have announced a three-year partnership, which will run through 2022.

Under the new partnership, Sideline Gear becomes “The Official Stadium Chair Provider of Pop Warner,” an exclusive category. The agreement is part of Pop Warner's ongoing initiative to partner with companies that ensure a positive experience for all involved in the Pop Warner community, including spectators.

Sideline Gear provides ultra-padded stadium chairs so spectators can comfortably watch games from the sidelines. The chairs have a built-in carrying handle and sturdy grip, and weigh just 7.6 pounds, making it the lightest of its kind while supporting up to 500 pounds. Rubber strips on the bottom prevent the seat from sliding, and a built-in bleacher hook provides added stability when sitting on wooden or metal bleachers and easily pivots out of the way to sit on the ground.

“We’re excited about this partnership with Sideline Gear,” said Sam Mutz, Pop Warner Football commissioner. “It’s important to us that friends and families come out and support our young athletes and a partner like Sideline Gear helps ensure they enjoy their experience on the sidelines with comfortable seating.”

“Pop Warner has been the preeminent youth football, cheer and dance organization in the United States for decades,” said T.J. DoVale, President of Sideline Gear. “Sideline Gear is more than thrilled to say that we are affiliated with such a fantastic program. Our mission and core values could not be more aligned with those of Pop Warner, resulting in the perfect partnership.”

About Sideline Gear
We are Neil and T.J., the founders of Sideline Gear. We have been best buds for over 30 years and share our relentless entrepreneurial spirit, love for sports, and the desire to give back to our community. Over the years, we have both spent countless hours with our butts on a bleacher. We’ve purchased foam cushions, metal chairs, fabric chairs – basically anything that would make the experience less miserable. Finally, we decided to solve our own problem. We wanted to design a chair that was not only comfortable, but also lightweight, sturdy, attractive, and affordable. Next, we wanted to figure out a way to give back to the sports that have given so much to us. So, we decided to give 20% of the proceeds from the sales of our chairs back to the sports programs that help us get them into the hands of discerning fans. Visit for more information.
