Man City continue expansion into US West Coast

Manchester City have announced a five-year partnership with San Diego's Surf Soccer Club, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/. The partnership will see the launch of the Manchester City FC Americas Cup presented by Surf Cup Sports, a competition aimed at ten to 17 year-olds, which will take place this May.

City will deliver coaching programmes to children, while Surf Soccer Club coaches will have the chance to participate in workshops and to visit City's new City Football Academy, its state-of-the-art new training and community facility in Manchester.

The deal has been put together by City Football Services and comes just weeks before New York City FC, collaboration between City and the New York Yankees Major League Baseball team.

"We are delighted to partner with Surf Soccer," said Brian Marwood, the former Hull City, Sheffield Wednesday and Arsenal player who heads up City Football Services.

"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."

Jeremy McDonald, president of the San Diego Surf Soccer Club, added: "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."
