How the World Cup Academy Was Born

When the world’s greatest soccer players converged on South Africa for the World Cup last June, a group of United States youngsters from Charlotte, North Carolina also competed on the global stage, representing the U.S. in the 2010 World Cup Soccer Academy and Tour presented by Charlotte United Futbol Club.

On Friday morning, Jan. 21 at 11 a.m. ET on the iMediaPR radio show, we’ll talk with Benjamin Robinson, the coach and creator of the World Cup Academy about the experience in South Africa and plans for expanding the World Cup Academy for the next World Cup in Brazil. Charlotte United Football Club established the World Cup Soccer Academy, which was housed at the world class facilities of Stellenbosch University in Cape Town in mid- June, and featured instruction from UEFA-licensed coaches. The U.S. team members from the U-16 Charlotte United club were joined by youth teams from across the Globe, including teams from South Africa, Lesotho, Brazil, and various other players from an international school. All of the players were in the U-16 age group.

Hope you can join us.
