For Immediate Release: February 5, 2024
After thoughtful consideration, the Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals SC and Horsham Soccer Association have agreed to align in a collaborative effort to grow our local soccer community. The new alliance supports each of the respective Board of Directors’ goals of increasing player opportunities and broadening positive social impact to the community through soccer.
“This alliance provides a relationship that will help Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals maintain and improve our elite competitive standing at both the regional and national levels by growing our youth talent pool,” said Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals Board President Bobby Andrews. “Not only does this allow our club to increase our robust soccer offering within the Suburban Philadelphia region, but grow our youth program and increase our ability to effectively serve our families and the goals of each player. We could not be more excited.”
“With this new alliance, we have a chance to enhance coach and player development and the soccer pathway,” said Horsham SA Board President Nick Bellizze . “Through this relationship, our membership will have the ability to grow within the Horsham and Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals system and into the elite player pathway. We are looking to many great years ahead.”
This new alliance will become effective for the 2024-2025 seasonal year, beginning with the tryout process this spring.
