Time for some Pug soccer!

I wish I could tell you that we're going to be seeing a whole starting 11 of little pugs running onto the field soon, but those cute little doggies would get crushed.

Plus, it might be a handball if they use their front paws! The rules are unclear.

Instead, we're excited to announce that StoragePug is one of the main jersey sponsors for our local USL League One soccer team, One Knox SC!

StoragePug is supporting One Knox because Knoxville is our home. Our founders (Matt, Tommy, and Richard) all graduated from UT, and we got our start in Matt’s basement, building a website for his dad’s storage facility. We’ve gotten a bit bigger since then.

Best Places to Work in Tennessee BannerStoragePug has been ranked in the Inc 5000 two years running, recognized for being the fastest-growing private company in Knoxville and one of the fastest in the US, which is great, but we’re prouder to be one of Tennessee’s Best Places to Work for 2024!

We’re thrilled to partner with One Knox and keep making this wonderful part of the world even better. Through the partnership with One Knox, we hope to shine a light on the budding tech career opportunities right here in Knoxville.

Oh, and what’s with the pug? Pugs are loyal and just pure fun. StoragePug’s vision is simple: we want to make awesome software with amazing people and love on people who believe we can help them (the way pugs love on people).

“I could not be more excited to welcome Tommy, Matt, Richard, and the rest of StoragePug to the One Knoxville family and to tell their story,” said Amir Rabiei, Partnerships Lead for One Knoxville SC. “These guys have built something special here in Knoxville and with their support, energy, and enthusiasm, I have no doubts it will inspire us to continue to build something special, too.”

As part of the new partnership with One Knoxville SC, the Pug will take the field in 2024 and will be visible on the matchday uniforms and all that are available in retail.

Also excited about this partnership is Co-Founder of StoragePug, Tommy Nguyen, "As a Knoxville-based founder, I can’t help but root for our fellow homegrown startups. It’s incredible how One Knox is transforming youth sports in our city, and the journey is just beginning. My partners, Matt and Richard, are lifelong fans of the Premier League, so it was an easy choice to rally behind Knoxville’s first professional soccer club. We’re excited to support One Knox and proud to champion community-driven projects that enrich our hometown.”

One Knoxville SC will play host to Lexington SC in its first home game of 2024 USL League One season. Purchase tickets here for March 23rd and witness the debut of the Pug at Regal Stadium.
