Revolution United FC Signs Partnership With Professional Soccer Team From Spain
Revolution United FC (RUFC) has signed a partnership with Spanish Club Alcorcon. A Professional Club from Spain. In February, RUFC President, Fabian Cano along with Coach Rodrigo and RUFC former player/coach Max, traveled to Spain and made a tremendous connection with the Spanish Club. During one week, the coaches had an intense coaching course and an introduction to the Spanish Club Philosophy. While player Max had the opportunity to do a trial with the Club.
This new partnership will bring endless opportunities to our players, families, and coaches.
RUFC players will now have the opportunity to be selected to soccer trials in Spain.
RUFC Coaches will also get the opportunity to collaborate with the Alcorcon Youth Academy Coaches during the ID Clinics and Drafts that will be happening in June.
Gracias Alcorcon for believing in RUFC.
"It was great to have the opportunity to train with a professional team and it is something that I will remember all my life. This experience taught me a lot of things and gave me a taste of what it feels like to play at the professional level. I would like to thank Revolution United FC and AD Alcorcon for the amazing experience". Max Cano
We are very pleased to announce the newest addition to our Coaching Team. Please join us in welcoming Coach Estuardo Estrada, better known as Coach Esto.
