Truro College has a thriving sporting community, with several successful teams representing different specialties. We are fortunate enough to be members of the College / Chelsea Foundation Football Team which in the last few months has had much success and are currently at the top of the U19s National Youth Development League. The team has now been invited to participate in the Dallas Cup in April 2017 in America, which is a tournament held over 3 days hosting 184 teams from 5 continents and including representative teams from Ajax, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Liverpool, to name a few.
In addition to the actual tournament, the tour will enable the team to visit New York for 3 days before travelling to Dallas where we will stay with host families for the remainder of the 15 day tour. As you can imagine, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Something that we have all dreamed of doing for many years, playing the sport that we are so passionate about and representing Cornwall / the U.K. as well as the added bonus of travelling to America, seeing New York's iconic landmarks and hopefully developing a lasting friendship with our host families in Dallas.
Obviously, an experience such as this will be costly and each member of the team has been tasked with raising £1,700.00 in order to be able to participate. Any donation, small or large, will greatly help towards costs of flights both too and within America, entry fee to the tournament, and our accommodation in New York.
