Partnership to get underway from 2022.
Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers have teamed up with Illinois 5 Star Club Chicago City SC on an international partnership, which will see both teams collaborate together to develop future talents in the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The partnership will get underway from 2022, and both teams will collaborate together on a host of activities and projects, which will include providing exciting and new opportunities for the up-and-coming talents at Wolves and Chicago City.
The partnership will also see digital collaboration between both teams and creation of community camps and clinics, ID sessions, player and team exchanges and tours as well.
Joe Hunt, Wolves’ International Manager, commented:
“We are delighted to be working with Nick Mulvaney, the staff and all the amazing families at Chicago City Soccer Club.
“The last 18 months have been filled with conversations and planning and we are eager to finally launch this partnership as we all begin to emerge from pandemic restrictions and lockdowns in the UK and US.
“The pandemic gave us the time to discuss the partnership in more detail and find out how we can positively work together. Chicago City Soccer Club shares the same values as us here at Wolves – they are a progressive club who want to improve daily and have a positive environment for all their players.
“We will be delivering plenty of different activities in Chicago but also welcoming players and staff across to the UK to experience how we work, coach and play at Wolves. Nick has already been across to the UK and met with some of our senior management team as well as watching our home game against Everton.
“In addition to physical delivery in the US and UK, we will be hosting regular coaching webinars between our Academy staff and the staff from Chicago City SC. It’s exciting times again and now the travel corridors have reopened, we can continue our international work, starting with this exciting partnership in Chicago. We welcome Chicago City Soccer Club to the pack.”
Nick Mulvaney, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Chicago City SC, added:
“Important factors in developing this partnership were our shared values and their steadfast commitment to excellence including Wolves’ strong family culture from top to bottom.
“Wolves were the perfect organisation to begin a long-term international partnership with, with their Category 1 Academy club to support our initiatives and elevate our organisation to the next level and bring more opportunities to our players.”
