World Class Soccer Comes to Lancaster: July 16th at 7pm.

As many of you already know I also coach a youth (under 10) soccer team for the Manheim Township Soccer Club. So, I wanted to share this with everyone. The club has organized a fund raiser with Clipper stadium and the professional soccer match that they are hosting.

This Thursday July 16th Harrisburg City Islanders will be playing Crystal Palace from London, England. This is a great chance to get out and see some top level soccer, right here in Lancaster. For only $12! I hope there is a great turn-out to this game, because that will show that we are serious about soccer in Lancaster and will hopefully give us the chance to get more top matches. Come out and watch what should be a great game and support soccer in Lancaster! As an extra bonus Clpper Magazine Stadium will donate $3 from each ticket to the Manheim Township Soccer Club (see details in the image above). It’s a great way to support youth programs in the area.

Hope to see everyone there!

Own your own English Soccer Team: MyFootballClub

Not to long ago I posted about a book I recently read called Wikinomics. As I said before the book is about how collaboration projects like Wikipedia and many others are changing the face of the internet. However the idea of collaboration is much more widespread and is affecting the business world much more than most of us can even imagine. I came across a new kind of collaboration today, an organization called MyFootballClub.

MyFootballClub is a UK based organization looking to bring the power of collaboration to the world of professional soccer. The group plans to purchase a mid-tier English football club and build it into a Premier Division side in the future. The way it works is people sign up for a subscription that costs £35 (about $70) and the become members. “They (members) will own the club, vote on team selection, decide which players to buy and sell and guide the club up the leagues.”

As a member you can:

  • join other members on our private forum
  • read exclusive news on the takeover progress
  • be the first to find out which club is purchased
  • cast crucial votes to shape our club’s future
  • be part of a community that will make football history
