Academy FC Partners with English Premier League
Date Posted: 3/3/2015
Academy FC is pleased to announce its partnership with Stoke City FC of the English Premier League. Academy FC is based out of the Academy Sports Complex in Farmingdale, NY -- a 70,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor sports facility centrally located to serve all of Long Island and the surrounding counties.
US Academy of Soccer founder, Kaz Gungor, and Premier Soccer Academy’s Director of Coaching, Eric Lorandini, are the inspiration behind Academy FC. A common training methodology, as well as a common goal of elevating soccer in the region, has brought these two player development organizations together to partner with Stoke City FC. “Many of our former students over the years have achieved success playing at various college levels as well as MLS and overseas.”
Academy Sports Complex will serve as the year-round training facility for the Academy FC program and its member teams. Additionally, Academy Sports Complex will be the host site for a series of Elite Player ID events. Stoke City FC staff coaches will work directly with players and Academy FC coaches at these events. The best male and female players will be invited to participate at the Stoke City National Camp. The top players from this camp will be invited to train at the Stoke City International Academy in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. “Partnering with Stoke City FC and Stoke City International Academy will further enhance Academy FC’s ability to identify and develop outstanding and talented players of all ages, taking our program to an elite level.”
