Rush Soccer is very excited to announce another Caribbean partnership. As of today, Rush and Black Pearls - Viva Rio have signed an agreement to partner their clubs. "This is a great step for us, this is a very established club and we will soar to new heights in Haiti," said Caribbean Technical Director Brian Lux. Joining Cavaly AS Rush, we now have two clubs on the Haitian half of Hispanola. Big things are already happening for the Pearls.
On July 11, the Black Pearls Under-16 team will file into the team bus that they have become familiar with over the past few years. They will drive by exquisitely painted tap-taps (Haiti’s shared taxis), green mountains that tower over the crystal clear Caribbean waters, and the energy of the Caribbean Culture that they’ve been raised in. With an exuberant mixture of nerves and excitement, they will say goodbye to their friends and family as they leave Haiti to participate in two of the World’s top youth tournaments this summer: Gothia Cup & Norway Cup.
Gothia Cup (“The World Youth Cup”) will run from July 14-July 20th in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Black Pearls will gear up to play Mariestads BK (Sweden), CA Intercups (Mexico), and Assi IF (Sweden) in the first round. Following Gothia Cup, the Black Pearls will again aim to demand attention as they “Play Pearl” against 3 Norwegian-based teams: Hurdal, KFUM-KAM and Kolvereid IL in the first round of Norway Cup (July 27th-August 3rd).
Check back soon for updates on the Black Pearls and their membership with Rush and welcome from the entire Rush Family!
