Youth Soccer Powerhouse Legends FC and Local Legend Robbie Findley Launch Legends FC Arizona in 2020

PHOENIX - May 23, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

 ​Legends FC is excited to announce the joining together of two great leadership groups that are committed to building the strongest soccer program in Arizona. Through this collaboration, Legends Arizona will field multiple competitive teams, have strong player pools in various age groups and gender, and clearly defined local and National player pathways to achieve their goals.  

Legends Arizona’s main priority is to develop the top age level talent in the Phoenix Metro Area. We pride ourselves in developing excellence in the individual and team performance through a consistent and comprehensive training program.

Legends Arizona strives to provide its players with professional-level training, the best possible playing environments, and to develop and nurture the skills and confidence necessary to play at the sports highest levels. We pride ourselves on the ability to progress the player development and setting them up properly for the next level.

Legends Arizona will start in 2020. It will be led by local legend Robbie Findley (Technical Director).

"I’m proud to be a local product of Arizona Youth Soccer and was lucky enough to have both passionate and talented coaches that cared about my team's future, both on a youth soccer level and personal level. They knew our families, they appreciated the effort we gave to them and that mutual dedication helped develop four professional soccer players from my youth team. 

"Those coaches opened doors for me to have successful collegiate, professional, and USMNT careers both at home and abroad. When I came home to Arizona after playing professional soccer, I had no intention of being involved in the game. I then visited local youth games and fields and saw how the landscape had changed. There appeared to be a lack of focus on the details, a disconnect between players and coaches, and that change appeared to only benefit clubs to sign up more players, not build great players.  

"I decided at that moment that I wanted to give back to the youth and community the same dedication and opportunity that I was given from my coaches and mentors. I want to give youth the opportunity to become legends.

"I’m proud to have joined together with Legends FC in Arizona to provide a throwback to an elite academy club. I'm excited to provide youth the same dedication I was provided on a youth, collegiate, MLS, and National Team level.  

"Joining Legends FC gives us the opportunity to join a first-class organization and provide a top program for Phoenix and the surrounding region. Legends FC Arizona looks forward to building upon our inaugural teams and building the next generation of Legendary Arizona Players," said Robbie Findley, Technical Director of Arizona.

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

Jun 5, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Jun 5, 2020

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Jun 5, 2020

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

The Latest: Concerts canceled over Hong Kong airport protest

Jun 5, 2020

HONG KONG — The Latest on Hong Kong protests (all times local): 7 p.m. At least three concerts by overseas performers have been canceled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city's airport to suspend operations for a second day. K-pop star Kang Daniel and Scottish band CHVRCHES both announced Tuesday that they are calling off upcoming events. American singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin canceled an upcoming concert late Monday. Kang's management office said the cancellation of a fan meeting scheduled for Sunday was because of safety concerns related to the protests, while CHVRCHES blamed "unforeseen circumstances." The airport protests are the...

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Jun 5, 2020

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
