Controlling the Game is not just about sports apparel, its about Controlling the Game of Life” Mr. Medina acknowledges that CTG is positioning itself through this partnership to be a globally recognized brand and control a greater market share. “I look forward to working with Mr. Muller to continue our success” said Mr. Medina.
