ANNOUNCEMENT
 PENN LEGACY     PHILADELPHIA UNION      
CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT
Penn Legacy is delighted to announce that it has been selected as an official affiliate club of the Philadelphia Union.  This new relationship is of great significance to the present and future of our club, and will be centered on coaching education and player development.  Penn Legacy is one of only 5 clubs in the state to be awarded this distinction.
Penn Legacy Director of Coaching, Seamus Donnelly, says "basically the Union have acknowledged the work we have put in on coaching and player development over the years and our general philosophy on how the game should be played and taught to young people.  So in that respect it is wonderful honor that we were chosen.  However, for me, the most important element is what happens next; the Union staff and myself now get to work hand-in-hand on making us even better at what we do, which in turn will flow down to our players' overall soccer experience.  To me it is the ultimate compliment, but also a fantastic opportunity.  The Union have absolutely demonstrated their commitment to youth soccer, they are a shining example in US soccer in that regard, and we couldn't be more excited to work with them going forward on such a close level.  Hopefully our coaches and players will see the benefits across the board from session plans to an overall curriculum to a closer bond with MLS's most exciting franchise."
 
The Union and Adidas have developed an affiliate logo (see above) that will be go on all our jerseys starting next fall.
