Sevilla FC continues growing in the USA. This time, Sevilla representatives were in Miami, there to open the SFC Soccer Academy at the Pegaso facilities on Vizcaine Boulevard.
As had to be the case, the Sevilla anthem kicked off the ceremony which saw the Director of Sevilla's Soccer Academy program in the USA, Miguel Ángel Fernández, introduce Club Chairman, José Castro who spoke to the crowd: "It's a pleasure to be here. In our league, which we lead, we've achieved things that many other teams haven't in the last few years. That makes us think about our methods with the youngest Sevillistas, and how we can grow great footballers like Marchena, Navas, Ramos... It all makes us believe we can transfer our model. We will continue opening schools so the youngest Sevillistas can make use of them. First for sport, then for football, later for competition, then as an opportunity to stand out and become Sevilla FC players".
The new school has a capacity of 200 students with 60 already signed up. Local press - led by Irene Díaz - were there to represent Bein Sport, Telemundo 51, Canal 41 Florida and many more for the coverage of the ceremony.
There was no lack of Seville presence either. There was local Sevillian dancing from a mother of one of the students, with Sevilla FC's Director of Marketing Ramón Loarte also present for the opening.
