ProEvents Launches Manchester United Soccer Schools in Hong Kong

HONG KONG - ProEvents, the leading football promoter in Asia, is delighted to announce the launch of Manchester United Soccer Schools (MUSS) in Hong Kong.

ProEvents has signed up with Manchester United as the official operator of the MUSS in Hong Kong. From October 2004 to March 2005, MUSS will provide the opportunity for young soccer players in Hong Kong to work with coaches from one of the biggest football clubs in the world. Boys and girls aged 8-15 years old will be coached by three resident MUSS Head Coaches from Manchester and six local assistant coaches. Over 1,000 youngsters in Hong Kong will benefit from this coaching over the 5 month period.

Manchester United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "Here at Manchester United we place great emphasis on developing young players. It has been part of the traditions of this club since the days of Sir Matt Busby and is something we remain very much focussed on today, whether bringing players through our Academy or coaching young players at our soccer schools. We are aware that we enjoy huge support in Hong Kong and it is with this in mind that we will be running Manchester United Soccer Schools from October. We believe that the soccer school will provide children - whether fans of Manchester United or not - with the benefit of coaching the Manchester United way."

"We are delighted to continue our relationships with Manchester United to operate the first Manchester United Soccer Schools in Hong Kong, its first in Asia. This Soccer School will be the first of its kind here in Hong Kong with Manchester United sending out their Academy Coaches conducting the courses on a season long basis. Manchester United is hugely supported in the territory and we believe many young footballers in Hong Kong would be benefited from these specially designed skill courses." commented Paul Kam, Chairman of ProEvents Group.
