    We were able to secure a spot in the prestigious soccer tournament CosmosCopa New York City 2011. This tournament is the official Mayor's Cup tournament. The tournament is an 11-a-side tournament between the country communities in the Tri-State area. The level of the tournament is exceptionally competitive.
    Last year we watched the impressive final between Poland and Jamaica live on TV. These countries have large communities in New York so there was a great support. Brazilian football legend Pele and Mayor Bloomberg did the award ceremony. The tournament is affiliated with the New York Cosmos. As you might know the NY Cosmos’ goal is to have another MLS team playing in New York. Eric Cantona (former French international) has been appointed as Director of Soccer and Pele is honorary president. The initiative is led by Paul Kemsley (former Vice Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur) and Terry Byrne (David Beckham’s personal manager and former football director of Watford).
    If you like to be part of the Holland selection please let me know by sending an e-mail to:
    Our first try-out will take place on Friday evening, May 20 from 8-10 in East River Park, The field is off 6th Street, next to the FDR (the one with a track field).
    To be part of the Holland selection, you have to be a Dutch citizen (1st or 2nd generation) and live in the Tri-State area, (NY/CT/NJ). Note: we also have 3 spots available for Dutch people living outside the Tri-State area. Please let us know if you are interested, as our coaches (Stuart England and Ruben van Veen) might have a spot for you in the Dutch Soccer Team.
    On June 18, 2011 we have our first official match against one of the favorites USA at the Parade Grounds in Brooklyn (next to Prospect Park). Please reserve that date, as we need all the support as well!
