Valencia CF continues its international expansion with the opening of a new Academy in Miami, the second in the U.S. after the recent introduction in New York. Managed by UnitedFC Soccer Academy and Plus Sports Management, will have different locations in the Miami area: Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point, Sunny Isles Beach, Pembroke Pines and Biscayne Bay Campus of Florida International University. New locations will soon be added.
This new Academy, as well as offering training with Valencia CF methods, will offer different year-round Camps, clinics, training courses for coaches and an annual tournament with participating teams from throughout the State of Florida. The first tryouts will be carried out between late May and early June, aimed to identify boys and girls aged 6 to 17, with a forecast of about 500 participants. This new Academy joins as part of the permanent project that Valencia CF has already established in Shanghai, Singapore, Japan, Bermuda, Malaysia, Canada and the already mentioned in New York, and follows the line of development at the international level to publicize the Valencia brand in the world.
Regarding this exciting project, CEO of UnitedFC Soccer Academy says that they are "confident to announce this agreement that will allow us to establish this direct link between Valencia CF and South Florida. We will offer a quality program that ensures a comprehensive training for the players, coaches and parents of the Miami Dade and Broward County área, using methods developed by coaches of Valencia CF who will travel to South Florida this summer. It is very important to create links through a real connection with a club as prestigious as Valencia CF".
For his part, the director of the Academy of Valencia CF, Luis Vicente Mateo, said that this Project is "a great opportunity to continue to expand in the United States, where male and female soccer is growing exponentially. Florida, especially Miami, is a market with a diverse community that value the Spanish style of Soccer and one that deserves to have all the excellence that Valencia CF is wise enough to provide". As it is becoming customary in all of our international projects, we will move to Miami a minimum of two technicians with experience in our VCF Academy, which will be responsible for strengthening the Project at the technical level and ensure that methods that are transmitted are the same as offered in Paterna (Valencian Community). We want to continue to expand the formation of player plan that has made Valencia CF reach its International Level thus allowing more children the opportunity to become and feel like a true player of Valencia CF".
