I have been given the opportunity to travel to the USA and play in the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup for Chelsea FC Foundation Truro. This is an amazing opportunity for me as I have always loved football. I will get to play in the biggest youth football tournament in the world, and play against the best players in my age group. The trip is due to take place in March 2018 and will be 2 weeks long. The first 3 days will be spent in Boston and the following 11 will be spent in Dallas where I will stay with an American family and experience their lifestyle and culture to the max.
The only problem is that the trip is very expensive but I am certain it will be worth every penny. I will be taking part in lots of fundraising activities with the team to try and bring the cost down. There is also a range of sponsorship options available (eg shirt sponsor) and if you would be interested in any details please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any donations, big or small, would be greatly appreciated!
