Sunny Soccer Launches in Orlando

A new attraction for football mad youngsters has opened in Orlando.

Sunny Soccer - a new venture developed by Midlands travel entrepreneur John Donnelly - has teamed up with Orlando City, the North American championship team to offer half-day football coaching camps as part of the Florida holiday experience.

Sunny Soccer camps start in July 2013 and run through until the end of August 2013 and plan to attract up to 50,000 youngsters whilst they are on holiday in Orlando in the next five years. Youngsters will develop their football skills through coaching packages developed with their ages in mind and the programme is open to children aged five to 13 years.

Places at the soccer camp cost £49 and include a four-hour coaching session, a free family match ticket (for two adults and two children) to an Orlando City game at the Citrus Bowl, branded souvenir t-shirt, future membership of the Sunny Soccer club, monthly newsletters, goody bag and water for session participants. The venue, Austin-Tindall fields is located only 15 minutes from International Drive and has hosted World Cup and professional teams and offers first class facilities to all those attending.

John Donnelly has teamed up with fellow founding Director, ex Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion footballer James O'Connor who now plays for Orlando City to develop and deliver the Sunny Soccer programme. James made over 500 first team appearances whilst playing in the UK and holds a large number of qualifications many of which were gained with the English FA including the UEFA Pro License, UEFA A&B License and FA Certificate.

Sunny Soccer also has two well known Non Executive Directors, Comedian and Broadcaster Nick Hancock who is probably Stoke City FCs most famous fan and Lord Peter Snape who is also Chairman of his home town club Stockport County.

Sunny Soccer packages will be sold through Attraction World, the online ticket specialist for Florida's biggest and best theme parks and attractions such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, on their website at www.floridatix.co.uk.
