Manny Bains, LAFC Chairman stated, "It's an exciting opportunity to get into the Indian sports market with Leisure Sports, who are already very firmly established in the region.
Leisure Sport, S S Dasgupta, Managing Director said, "We at LSM are equally keen in creating a partnership with LAFC & ISMG to promote and professionalize sports in India.
LAFC group of companies has interests in several different areas such as sponsorship, media, entertainment, representation, public relations, and gaming.
LAFC will provide soccer balls, cleats and uniforms.
The nationally renowned soccer club will now operate as part of the LAFC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Last year, LAFC paid for two Houston teens to attend school in Los Angeles and play for one of the club's top teams.
Foundation is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization that evolved from LAFC
Chelsea, which has become one of America's largest and most prominent club soccer organizations.
This will be a wonderful chance for our young LAFC players to witness truly world-class soccer, as well as a much-valued opportunity to raise funds for our programs," stated LAFC President Don Sheppard, a former entrepreneur turned philanthropist who has put over $2 million of his own into youth sports.
LAFC Chelsea was launched in 2005 as an affordable option for skilled, yet economically disadvantaged youth to play top-tier club soccer.
LAFC is a Miami based marketing company whose activities are diverse, with interests in several different areas such as media and sponsorship, stadium design, sports wagering, and wealth management of Latin American players.
We believe with our partner LAFC and its Chairman, Manny Bains, and the rest of the team, we can achieve solid results by finalizing key relationships with soccer groups to market the site," says Yan Skwara, President & CEO of SDA.
Net proceeds from the July 21 event will benefit Los Angeles Futbol Club, one of America's largest and most prominent club soccer organizations, which recently partnered with Chelsea to become LAFC
