Manchester City FC are delighted to announce a ground-breaking five-year partnership with Surf Soccer Club.

The deal is the first of its kind for a Barclays Premier League Club in the US and will see the Manchester City FC Americas Cup presented by Surf Cup Sports hosted in San Diego California during May of 2015. The tournament, aimed at 10 to 17 year olds, will be the key activation of the partnership.

As part of the agreement, City will deliver coaching programmes to children, teaching them the same coaching methodology and principles used by City’s first team.

In addition to the playing programmes, Surf Soccer Club coaches will also benefit from the delivery of detailed coaching workshops, as well as having the opportunity to visit and train at Manchester City FC’s new HQ, City Football Academy.

City Football Services, which brokered the deal and is responsible for City’s football know-how, will work with Surf Soccer to create an affiliate club coaching programme, which will see both Manchester City and Surf Soccer work to develop players and coaches from affiliated youth clubs throughout the term of partnership.

Brian Marwood, Managing Director for City Football Services, said:

“We are delighted to partner with Surf Soccer. Our partnership will provide a fantastic opportunity for young players to develop as footballers and to connect with our team in Manchester. We look forward to working with Surf Soccer as we develop a number of projects together both in the United States and Manchester.”

“Surf Soccer represents the highest level of youth soccer competition in the United States with the goal of producing the next generation of national team players,” said Jeremy McDonald, President of the San Diego Surf Soccer Club. “By forming this strategic partnership with Manchester City FC, we can grow the Surf brand nationally and help Manchester City to develop their presence in the United States.”

In the spirit of collaboration and the partnership, both clubs plan to send teams to each other’s homes in the coming years to help build an even stronger relationship between Manchester City and Surf Soccer.

G13 White – United Cup Champs!

“The GU13 White team began Labor Day weekend drawn into the 2014 United Cup, which included several top ranked teams from California, Arizona and Nevada. Six games later the girls stood on the victory stand collecting champions medals. Our team survived a finals match up against a Tough Davis Legacy Supreme team which included not only two overtime periods but also penalty kicks.  Shout out to our Goal Keeper Alexis Miller, she was named MVP and made 2 saves in the very beginning of our PK’s.  Throughout the weekend the girls worked hard, accepted all challenges and supported each other while outscoring their opponents by a combined 14-2. This group of girls has continued to represent the club proudly and is preparing for another year of top Flight 1 competition. Congratulations to the players, Coach Eddie and Coach Amy and our parents on a successful weekend!

GU9 White Wins Back to Back Tournaments!

We started our preseason tournament schedule with a semi-final appearance in our own Anaheim Surf Cup.  The GU9 White team played extremely well, not allowing a single goal in pool play.  The team went on to play in the semi-finals, and after 50 hard fought minutes the game ended in a 0-0 tie; with New Port Mesa ultimately winning 3-2 on PK’s.  However; since losing in the semi-finals, the team has been on fire!  Capturing back to back tournament championships in the Anaheim FC tournament and the OCP Toyota Classic!  During the current run the team has only allowed 2 goals in 11 tournament games which is an amazing stat!  The team is starting to come together and learning to play smart and hard from start to finish.  We have a great group of players that are hungry to learn and to compete at the highest possible level.  The team is looking forward to our final preseason tournament (Labor Day weekend United Cup) as we prepare to head into league play as a tier 1 team in September.  United Cup here we come!!!

G13White in Surf Cup

G13W - Surf Cup 2014

The GU13 White team ventured into the hollowed fields of the San Diego Polo Grounds on August 2nd to face the toughest competition of their young careers at the Soccerloco Surf Cup XXXIV.  With ice in their veins, they faced the #1 team in the country for a 7:45am kick-off.  When the final whistle blew, the girls performance was one that they and the club could be proud of, a 0-0 tie.  They went on to tie the #2 ranked team in Cal North and had a hard fought 0-1 loss to the #1 ranked team from Virginia.  Although they didn’t get out of group play, the team showed they could play with ‘ the best of the best’ at Surf Cup.
