AYSO - American Youth Soccer Organization is a nonprofit and the oldest national youth soccer program in the United States. Beginning with only nine teams by a handful of soccer enthusiasts, AYSO was established in 1964 out of a garage in Torrance, California, in an effort to ensure that American kids have the opportunity to be introduced to the beautiful game of soccer. More than 50 years later, AYSO now has thriving programs for kids and adults in nearly 900 communities all over the country – and internationally in the Virgin Islands and Trinidad and Tobago – over eight million AYSO alumni, and a name that’s recognized nationwide. AYSO runs on volunteer power This means registered volunteers run the local AYSO programs all over the country. Additionally, our National Board of Directors, National President, as well as every coach, referee, and Regional Commissioner – the list goes on – is a volunteer. Due to the thousands of volunteers throughout the U.S. donating their time every season, AYSO is as successful and far-reaching as it is today. AYSO’s Six Philosophies are principles that separate AYSO from other sports organizations. These tenets were created to provide a positive, fair and fun soccer experience for all our players. AYSO’s goal is for kids and adults to play soccer, so they mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50 percent of every game. Each year, they form new teams as evenly balanced as possible, providing a stronger learning experience for teams as they play teams comprised of similar ability. It also allows for each player to experience playing with a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels. If you want to play soccer, AYSO welcomes you and gives all youth and adults the opportunity to register and play. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a player’s life, so AYSO requires they create a positive experience for every player in AYSO. Additionally, encouraging player’s effort leads to greater enjoyment, improved skills and stronger motivation in players. They strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and their programs are designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO. All players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, to maximize their enjoyment of the game.

They since regained promotion to the top tier in 2001–02 and have remained a fixture in the Premier League since 2002–03. The club received considerable financial investment in both playing staff and club facilities following the club's takeover by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan through the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008. This started a new era of achievement, with the club winning the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League in 2012, both their first since the 1960s, followed by another League in 2014. Under the management of Pep Guardiola City won the Premier League in 2018, becoming the only Premier League team to attain 100 points in a single season.

It all began with a bench on Corso Re Umberto, one of the most famous streets in city centre Turin. A group of friends congregated on this bench. They all possessed a shared passion for football, a special game that had recently been ‘imported’ from England. They had an intriguing idea, to create a sports club. They were well-educated, but the eldest was just 17 years of age. This paved the way for the club’s name. In Latin, the name ‘Juventus’ means youth. They weren’t aware of it yet, but on 1 November 1897, they had given birth to a legend, Juventus FC. And so Italy’s greatest football team was born, almost by chance. The club’s first President was Enrico Canfari, the first ground was Piazza d’Armi (Parade Ground) and the side started out wearing pink. Sporting that same jersey, the club made its debut in the national championship in 1900. Three years later, the Bianconeri colours, which had come from Nottingham, were in use. Five years later, the first Italian title arrived when Juve successfully beat off stiff competition from Genoa and Milanese. 1923 was a special year as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time, Giampiero Combi, made his first team debut. He would go on to contribute heavily to a change in the club’s standing. On 24 July, a shareholders’ meeting saw Mr Edoardo Agnelli, son of the founder of FIAT, elected as the new president. The club also now had its very own playing surface in Corso Marsiglia. In 1925/26 Juventus won their second Scudetto title following a gripping regional final against Bologna and then a resounding 12-1 aggregate win in the national final against Alba Roma. But this was just the beginning. From 1930 to 1935, Juve were streets ahead of the rest as five consecutive Scudetto trophies made their way to Turin. The main ingredients of the ‘Golden five-year period’ were the manager Carlo Carcano and champions such as Orsi, Caligaris, Monti, Cesarini, Varglien I and II, Bertolini, Ferrari and Borel II. Juve also made a significant contribution to the national side, who won the World Cup in Rome in 1934. The 1930s saw the Bianconeri have their first experience in a continental competition when they took part in the European Cup, currently known as the Champions League. Although luck was not on Juve’s side, they did manage to make four semi-final appearances. The Boniperti Era started with a bang by winning back-to-back championship titles (1971-72, 1972-73). It was the beginning of a successful period in Juve’s history which saw them lift nine Scudetto trophies, celebrate their first European success with the 1977 UEFA Cup, the 1984 Cup Winners’ Cup and the Champions League. Soon after, the coach from Cusano Milanino, Giovanni Trapattoni, helped guide Juventus to an era of dominance by investing in young Italian players such as Zoff, Scirea, Tardelli, Cabrini, Causio, Rossi, Gentile, Furino, Anastasi and Bettega. From the 1980s onwards, Boniperti was able to sign foreigners who would go on to make world-beating contributions. In the immediate aftermath of 1982’s World Cup, the number of foreigners eligible to play in Italian teams increased to two, so Polish Zibì Boniek and, more significantly, Michel Platini arrived at Juventus. The Frenchman proved to be a true world-beater. He displayed elegant movement, regularly featured on the scoresheet, played with his head up and consistently placed passes onto his teammates’ feet from 50 yards away. Platini’s retirement coincided with a restructuring of the team which saw Juventus enjoy a less successful period, despite a UEFA Cup-Coppa Italia double in 1990. Dino Zoff was at the helm and ably supported by one of his great friends and former teammates, Gaetano Scirea. But fate cut that solid partnership short during a trip to Poland, where Gaetano tragically died in a car accident while on a scouting mission for Juve’s next UEFA Cup opponents. The 3rd September 1989 is a date that no supporter will ever forget. In 1990, Giampiero Boniperti handed the presidential reins over to Mr Vittorio Caissotti di Chiusano. Three years later, Juventus clinched their third UEFA Cup, but had also experienced a barren run on the domestic front. In 1994, the club began a process of renovation. Chiusano remained as president, but operating positions were given to Roberto Bettega, Antonio Giraudo and Luciano Moggi. Marcelo Lippi was managing the side and several new faces had entered the squad such as: Ferrara in defence, Paulo Sousa and Deschamps in midfield and up front, alongside Gianluca Vialli and Roberto Baggio, was an interesting young player. He had joined Juventus in the previous year from Padova, showing a notable technique and a strong personality. His name was Alessandro Del Piero, the man who would go on to rewrite all Juventus records. The following season was defined by an endless duel with Parma, who managed to overcome Juve in the UEFA cup final. However, the Bianconeri beat their rivals in the Scudetto title race and also ran out winners against them in the Coppa Italia final. The Scudetto victory allowed Juve to claim their place in the Champions League the following year, when they knocked out Real Madrid in the quarter-finals and then beat Nantes in the semis. The final was to be played in Rome against reigning champions Ajax. On 22 May 1996, it ended 1-1. The Bianconeri had scored all their penalties, and keeper Peruzzi had saved two. Jugovic approached the penalty spot, smiling for the last spot kick. His smile turned to a cry of joy after a few seconds as Juve were crowned Champions of Europe. The squad underwent drastic changes in the following season as Vialli and Ravanelli both left, while Boksic, Vieri and Amoruso came in. Montero and Zidane also joined to bolster the defence and midfield respectively. The Bianconeri were then back on the top of the world after Del Piero’s goal clinched victory against River Plate in the Intercontinental Cup held in Tokyo. The team also achieved another Scudetto title, but a second consecutive Champions League final was to end on a low, as former Bianconeri players Moeller and Paulo Sousa took the trophy to Germany. 15 July 2003 proved to be a historic date for the club as Juventus entered into an agreement with the City of Turin for the acquisition of the Stadio Delle Alpi land rights, where the new stadium would eventually be built. In the meantime, the Bianconeri exacted revenge on Milan by claiming victory in the Super Cup, which was contested in the USA. The following season saw Fabio Capello assume control of first team affairs. Among the new arrivals were Emerson, Fabio Cannavaro and Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimović. Performances in Europe weren’t as anticipated, but Juve were unstoppable in Italy and achieved back-to-back championship titles, smashing records and leaving opponents lagging behind. The arrival of Andrea Agnelli brought widespread changes across all levels of the club. Work began by restructuring the Board of Directors. Giuseppe Marotta was recruited to oversee the sporting department and assume the role of CEO. After an initial season of transition, Juventus were fully prepared to re-establish themselves as a significant force in Serie A. In came Antonio Conte, returning to lead his beloved Bianconeri after enjoying a hugely successful thirteen-year stint as a player. Conte managed to instantly mould an aggressive but stylish team unit which guaranteed both attractive football and results. Juventus were an unstoppable force as they ended the league campaign unbeaten and lifted the Scudetto for the 30th time in the club’s history. This provided departing skipper Del Piero with the perfect send-off to his illustrious career in the black and white stripes. Off-field success came with the opening of J-Museum, a fitting interactive tribute to the club’s glorious 115-year history, which allowed supporters to relive previous victories while looking ahead to an exciting future. And this future promises to be even brighter after the club launched plans for an internal Youth Sector educational programme which will see Bianconeri prospects combine their sporting and academic pursuits in Vinovo. The summer of 2015, in many ways, marked a new dawn in the evolution of the side with several changes made to personnel. As Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal, Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente all bid farewell to Turin, the likes of Paulo Dybala, Sami Khedira, Mario Mandzukic, Simone Zaza, Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro entered the picture as 10 new players in total joined the Bianconeri ranks. The summer of 2016 saw the Bianconeri bolster their ranks considerably. The arrivals of Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves, Medhi Benatia, Marko Pjaca and club-record signing Gonzalo Higuain made for an exceptionally competitive squad. Juve would sit top of the league table all the way from mid-September until the end of the season as they cruised to a legendary sixth straight Serie A title – an unprecedented feat in Italian football. On 1 July 2017 the club announced the creation of Juventus Women, a pioneering move by a club known for its trailblazing moves. The newly formed team wasted no time in making themselves known, going on to win the Scudetto in their maiden season. Seven Scudetti in a row may have been the stuff of legend, but Max Allegri and his charges were still hungry for more. The 2018/19 season was yet another memorable chapter in the club’s history. Juve, who already boasted a star-studded squad, reinforced their ranks during the summer. While Emre Can, Leonardo Spinazzola, Mattia Perin, Joao Cancelo, and the returning Leonardo Bonucci were vital additions, the icing on the cake was the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester United Football Club was first formed in 1878, albeit under a different name - Newton Heath LYR (Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway). Little suspecting the impact they were about to have on the national, even global game, the workers in the railway yard at Newton Heath indulged their passion for association football with games against other departments of the LYR and other railway companies. The words Old Trafford entered footballing folklore for the first time during the 1909/10 season. The land on which the stadium was built was bought by the Manchester Brewery Company (through John Henry Davies) and leased to the club. Davies himself paid for the building work, which commenced in 1908 under the supervision of architect Archibald Leitch. By 1910, the club had moved lock, stock and barrel from their old home of Bank Street. United's opening fixture at Old Trafford was played on 19 February 1910. The new hosts lost 4-3 to their first visitors, Liverpool, but the stadium was successful in accommodating an 80,000 capacity crowd. Two days previously, the old wooden stand at Bank Street had been blown down by strong winds - further evidence, perhaps, that United were suited to and needed their new home. Indeed, United were crowned League champions for the second time at the end of their first full season at Old Trafford - 1910/1911. The Reds clinched the title at home on the final day of the season, beating Sunderland 5-1 with Harold Halse grabbing two of the goals. Halse also scored six goals as United beat Swindon Town 8-4 to clinch the Charity Shield. The outbreak of the Second World War forced football to the very back of people's minds between 1939 and 1946. But even in the absence of League football, Old Trafford was still the focus of attention. On 11 March 1941, the stadium was bombed during a German air raid. The attack destroyed the main stand, dressing rooms and offices. It was a devastating blow but, within a few years, there would be optimism again around the famous old ground. After building one of the greatest teams seen in England, Matt Busby had to start all over again at the start of the 1960s. The Munich Air Disaster had robbed him, and football, of some of the era's greatest players. But once the great manager had recovered from his own injuries, he set about forging another side to take the world by storm. United made a poor start to the 1980s, but Dave Sexton and his team recovered to win eight of their last ten league games in the 1979/80 campaign, finishing just two points behind Liverpool in the title race. In November 1986, United at last appointed a proven winner. At Aberdeen, Alex Ferguson had claimed every prize that Scotland had to offer, not to mention the added bonus of the European Cup Winners' Cup when his team defied the odds to beat Real Madrid in the final. The dawn of the 1990s saw Alex Ferguson collect his first silverware as Manchester United manager, and Liverpool winning their last League title with an ageing team. The tide was turning… Ferguson's first FA Cup, achieved after a replay against Crystal Palace, at the time seemed to be a stand-alone success, one that possibly saved his job after another poor season in the League. But nine years later, it seemed that Lee Martin's winning goal against Palace lit the fuse for an explosion of unprecedented success. First and foremost, winning the FA Cup in 1990 allowed United to make a return to European competition after an absence of five years following the Heysel disaster. Far from being rusty, the Reds went all the way to the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup in Rotterdam, where the opponents were Barcelona, the former club of United striker Mark Hughes. Two goals by Hughes sealed the match 2-1 in United's favour in May 1991, 23 years after the club's previous triumph in Europe. Despite a solid start to the campaign, United’s 2009/10 term contained a sting in the tail as Chelsea’s late surge for the line ended the Reds’ chances of winning a fourth successive title by a single point in a race which ran until the final day of the season. There was some solace to be found in the retention of the League Cup, achieved at Aston Villa’s expense and secured by a late winner from Wayne Rooney, whose individual excellence was rewarded with both the PFA Player’s Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Player of the Year awards. The end of that 2012/13 season brought the news that millions of Reds had been dreading for a long time: Sir Alex Ferguson was to step down as manager of Manchester United. His retirement was announced on 8 May 2013 and his selection as successor was named the very next day. David Moyes arrived from Everton, tasked with following in the footsteps of British football's most successful manager. Louis van Gaal's appointmen as the permanent new manager - and the club's first boss from outside the UK and Ireland - was announced on 19 May 2014 and he started work in July after guiding his native Netherlands to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Brazil. Giggs, who had retired in May at the end of a long and glorious one-club playing career, was retained by van Gaal in the role of assistant manager.

Founded on March 18, 1900, AFC Ajax is one of the largest and most storied clubs in European football. After their founding and acceptance into Dutch Football, Ajax spent ten seasons in the country's second division before earning promotion for the 1911 season. The move to the first division did not last long though, as just three seasons later the club was relegated for the first and only time in its illustrious history. The fate of the club quickly changed with the arrival of trainer Jack Reynolds, who would spend 35 years at the helm of the team. Under the leadership of this legendary coach, Ajax won their first National Championship in 1918. From that point on, Ajax could always be found at or near the top of the Dutch table. It was also Reynolds and his revolutionary training methods that built the foundation for what has now become the world-famous Ajax Youth Training Program. The historic win of 1918 was the first of what currently stands at an astonishing 33 league titles for the Amsterdam club. Five of those magical wins came in the decade of the 1930s, when the dominance of the red and white was at one of its highest points ever. The 1930s were also a special decade for the club, as in 1934 they moved into what would become known as "De Meer." Their new stadium where which legends would be born. It was there that Ajax would call home fore over 60 years, and be the place that the club would come to dominate Dutch football and grow into a power across Europe. Ajax's first taste of European competition came in 1961 when the club became the first from the Netherlands to participate in the European Cup Winners Cup. Success on the European front loomed in the future as the club found a place in the 1969 Cup final before bringing home their first title in 1971. Starting with the magical victory in 1971 Ajax went on to win three consecutive European Champions Cups. In 1972, led by the world-famous Johan Cruijff, Ajax had one of the best seasons ever by a professional football team, winning the National Championship, the Dutch Cup, the European Champions Cup and the World Cup. "De Meer" was also the place where Ajax would develop its world-famous youth training program and develop some of the world's best football players, a philosophy that is even more important to their success today. The success of the late 1960s and early 1970s although impossible to duplicate was followed up by 25 more years of success for the club that included 11 National Championships in the final quarter of the century. The success was highlighted by another exciting venture in Europe, as Ajax again became European and world champions in 1995. Ajax definitively bids farewell to De Meer stadium, one year after winning the Champions League. The club moves to the much larger Amsterdam ArenA. The stadium is Ajax’s home base from that moment. The move is difficult for many Ajax fans and members, especially considering how many successes were celebrated in the old, trusted Ajax stadium over the previous 62 years. For coaches, players, and fans alike, De Meer had become a home away from home through the years. As Ajax experiences successes in the ArenA, an Ajax feeling steadily grows in the stadium. In addition to the stadium, Ajax’s world-famous youth academy also got a new home. The academy moved from Voorland to de Toekomst. The complex is a stone’s throw away from the Amsterdam ArenA. The Ajax players of the future are hard at work there. Wesley Sneijder, Urby Emanuelson, Rafael van der Vaart, Maarten Stekelenburg and Gregory van der Wiel are among the many players who were trained at de Toekomst. Since the arrival of coach Martin Jol, the first team also practices at the modern sports facility, which has an inspiring view of the ArenA. With Jol coaching, Ajax experiences a good 2009-2010 year. Unfortunately, they miss the title by one point, but Ajax’s results are good. After 17 home games, the team only has 4 goals against (!). Ajax breaks not only the club record, but the Eredivisie record. In total, 106 goals are scored. The top scorer of Ajax and the Eredivisie is Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan player scores 35 times in 34 Eredivisie matches. The cherry on the cake is the KNVB Cup win, after a double header against Feyenoord. For the eighteenth time in history, Ajax wins the ‘silver pine cone’. The outstanding performances were promising for the 2010-2011 season. But on December 6, 2010, after a series of disappointing results, Martin Jol and Ajax announce the end of their partnership. Frank de Boer takes over, and under his leadership, Ajax de-thrones FC Twente as national champion in the final match of the season. Ajax wins the title for the thirtieth time.

I am a God fearing individual, and I’m also a father to two beautiful kids, a boy and a girl. I worked for Tekkie Town as a Sales Assistant and I was chosen as the best Sales person for the entire Mpumalanga province. I also worked for the Department of agriculture as a Data capture. I have a passion for sports, football is one of my favourites and one day I wish I can own a soccer team. While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer, but due to financial constraints, I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated, communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.
