CEU Available via Manchester United Soccer Symposiums During 2004 U.S. Tour

CHICAGO (April 14, 2004) – As a service to our licensed coaches, and as part of our on-going efforts to provide the best possible continuing education opportunities, U.S. Soccer has created a unique opportunity this summer for our "A" licensed coaches to earn one (1) U.S. Soccer Coaching Education credit by attending one of three scheduled Manchester United Soccer Symposiums during the team's 2004 tour of America.

As they did in the summer of '03, Manchester United is returning the U.S. in 2004 to play three matches: July 25 in Chicago vs. Bayern Munich, July 28 in Philadelphia vs. Celtic and July 31 in New Jersey vs. AC Milan.

As part of the presentation of each match in Chicago, Philadelphia and New Jersey, soccer coaches around the country will again have the opportunity to get personal instruction from one of the club's top coaches before and after each of their three games.

Similar to a program offered during their successful 2003 tour of the U.S., a new curriculum has been developed in 2004 to give attendees an insight into how Manchester United develops some of the top players in the world. The program will not only show you how to implement their methods within your own team, but will also allow you to enjoy a spectacular match that concludes with direct match analysis and a question-and-answer session after the game.

The entire Manchester United Soccer Symposium, which includes a match ticket and a genuine Manchester United jersey, is just $245.

For more detailed information on how you can earn one (1) U.S. Soccer C.E. credit by attending this event, contact Euro-Sportring at 800-724-6076 or for application forms. Interested coaches can also log on to
