PSC Partners with Aston Villa

Pacesetter Soccer Club is excited to announce an official partnership with Aston Villa Football Club of the English Premier League. It is the first agreement of its kind for Pacesetter and Aston Villa, with the goal in mind of developing top level soccer players in North America.

"The partnership is an exciting opportunity for both Pacesetter Soccer Club and Aston Villa" said Jimmy Walker, Executive Director of Coaching at Pacesetter Soccer Club. "Aston Villa Football Club is one of the oldest and most successful football clubs in England and was a founder member of the English Football League, established in 1874. They have had a massive history, including; winning the European Cup, the English League Championship along with multiple FA and League Cups. Aston Villa is one of the top five teams in the history of the English Premier League and it is a fantastic opportunity for the Midwest and for American soccer that this link has been formed."

The Partnership will involve the Academy staff at Aston Villa working alongside Pacesetter Soccer Club Coaches. The goal is to share coaching education techniques and ideas to help develop top players in North America. The agreement will also serve as a potential scouting network between top American players and Aston Villa, with the hopes of one day seeing a local player in the English Premier League. This opportunity will also serve as an avenue to promote the Aston Villa brand in America and grow its fan base throughout the USA.

"We're very happy to support Pacesetter Soccer Club and we wish the partnership every success" Aston Villa Chief Executive Paul Faulkner said... Read more about the AV / PSC partnership.
