    LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Alianza
de Futbol Hispano, the nation’s leading organization
dedicated to the development and support of amateur Hispanic soccer, concludes
its 5th year by unveiling the Alianza All-Star Team. Led by international
soccer legend, Daniel “El Ruso” Brailovsky, the Alianza All-Star Team
will play against Club Tapatio (Chivas de Guadalajara’s reserve team) next
Saturday September 20th at 7:30 pm at Titan Stadium in Fullerton, CA.  The game will be broadcast nationally by Fox
Sports en Espanol on Sunday, September 21st at 8:00 pm EDT (5 pm PDT).

 

    Alianza de Futbol Hispano, through its partnership with Fox
Sports en Espanol and Sears, produced “El Sueno de Tu Vida,” a
national search to select the best 20 amateur Hispanic soccer players in the
United States. Professional Mexican scouts, including former Mexican National
Team Captain and Club America star, Jose Enrique Vaca, as well as Jose Luis
Arce, Vinicio Bravo and Cristobal Ortega, were enlisted by Alianza to evaluate
and select players.

 

    “Verizon Wireless Copa Alianza” and “El Sueno de
Tu Vida” by Sears were held for four consecutive months in ten cities
throughout the country. The tournament, which provided a showcase for adult
Hispanic players in top U.S. Hispanic markets, had more than 350 teams and
7,000 players compete for more than $140,000 in prizes.  Additionally, more than 1,500 players
participated in open tryouts for the “El Sueno de tu Vida” program,
with the finalists being provided a unique opportunity to be coached (and
trained for three consecutive days) by Daniel “El Ruso” Brailovsky in
a game that will be broadcast on national TV.

 

    Alianza de Futbol Hispano offers the best soccer platform for
amateur Hispanic players in top Hispanic markets in the country as the only
national Hispanic tournament providing open tryouts in front of professional
scouts from Mexican and MLS teams. Alianza de Futbol
Hispano’s 2008 lineup of national sponsors includes: Verizon Wireless, Fox
Sports en Espanol, Sears, adidas and Quepasa.com .
