Soccer Zone USA No. 4 Kicks Off Downtown
by Michele Silver
Michele Silver has lived in Montclair for more than nine years and is a professional writer and editor.
Italian native Frank Giuliano Sr. had a long-term passion to help soccer grow in Northern New Jersey. He opened Universal Sporting Goods in 1976, which he eventually handed over to his son, Frank Giuliano, Jr. in 2008. Five years ago, Frank Jr. officially turned Universal Sporting Goods into the Soccer Zone—it now has four locations, the newest one on 58 Church St. (next to Starbucks).
With the tremendous popularity of rec and travel teams in town, soccer players of all ages now have a downtown destination for their needs. The store carries a deep selection of cleats, clothing and gear from major brands such as Nike, adidas, Puma, New Balance, Reuch, Kwik Goal, and Storelli.
“I lived in Montclair for five years and it was a dream of mine to have a retail shop on Church St.,” Frank, Jr. said. “With all of the different ethnic backgrounds in a historic town like Montclair, I felt that the town deserved a soccer stop that carried all of the top brands and carried a vast amount of not only equipment, but also a variety of different Club and National team jerseys from around the world.”
