Great Project, Screenings, BluRays

We hope that everyone is well.  First off, the Blu Rays are coming soon, I swear! They are in the final stage of production and should be sent to us next week.  We will send them immediately upon receipt.

I wanted to fill everyone in on another great underdog soccer project. Please check it out and watch the trailer when you have a second and contribute if possible. It is another great story that needs to be told.

Here is the link:
The Soccermen follows two Brits who take the reigns of a team touted as "the worst soccer team in the world". It seemed like a good idea at the time, but coaching novices Paul and Matt find themselves on a remote Pacific Island with a population whose obesity rate is 90 percent, toad-infested facilities and one of the world's wettest climates. With no resources and the hopes of 16 Islanders resting on their shoulders, the coaches take their team to the mainland in search of the the island's first ever victory.

CHECK IT OUT! Lastly, we are offering the film to any group or organization that wants to screen it to raise awareness about the film, help out the group/club/organization and have a good night where people come together and enjoy themselves.  Please email us if you are interested!

The reaction on the film continues to be amazing, we get emails often from players and parents talking about the positive effect it has had on them. For that we are grateful and should all be proud. Rise & Shine!
