A Spanish-footballer who exhibits an attacking style of play, Perez will be making his way to HSC this summer! A former Newcastle United star in the English Premier League, is now a teammate of our owner, Christian Fuchs, at Leicester City FC (LCFC). At only 26, Perez is a budding young talent with 200 appearances and counting in the Premier League. Just a few weeks back, he scored a stunning hat-trick as LCFC handed Southampton a 9-0 defeat.
Kyle Martino is a household name in the soccer world and you may even invite him into your house every weekend during NBCSports Premier League coverage! A standout in High School and at the University of Virginia, Martino had a stellar career in Major League Soccer playing for the Columbus Crew and Los Angeles Galaxy. With several appearances at the USMNT level, Kyle’s knowledge and passion for the beautiful game are second to none so we are very proud to have him with us this summer and excited that he’ll be substituting his NBCSports suit for some boots to compete on the pitch!
An Englishman who came up through the ranks of Aston Villa, Albrighton is known for his play on the wing, especially his ability to cross in deadly balls that trouble the opposing keepers. With over 250 appearances in the EPL, Albrighton has been a teammate of Christian Fuchs for several years, including their year as Premier League Champions! We can’t wait to have Marc with us as we’ll surely see several of his crosses being finished in dramatic fashion during the All-Star Match!
Mo Ali Heydarpour
A YouTube sensation, Mo Ali Heydarpour is a former professional soccer player in his own right turned renowned trainer. With over 20K Subscribers on YouTube and nearly 600K on Instagram, Mo Ali has traveled the world and trained with many professional footballers including our very own, Christian Fuchs! We’re very much looking forward to having him with us at HSC and appreciate him making us one of his destinations to showcase his skills!
If you’re a proper football fanatic, you’re well aware of Jamie Redknapp and his days playing for Liverpool. With over 300 appearances in the EPL, Jamie was a stud in the midfield for over a decade as he donned kits for Bournemouth, Liverpool, Southampton, and Tottenham. His soccer roots run deep as his father is famed Manager Harry Redknapp and is he is cousins with current Chelsea Manager and Blues legend, Frank Lampard.
We’re very excited to have Jamie join us as we welcome him back for the second year in a row! Jamie visited Warwick during last year’s Grand Opening All-Star Charity match so we can’t wait to have him get back on the field and show us why he is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders of his generation.
Eldin has made over 265 appearances throughout his 20+ year career as a footballer. He’s played at the highest level for several European clubs including Grasshoppers Zurich, Lokomotiv Moscow, Hull City, and now Leicester City FC with Christian Fuchs. He has also proudly represented his country by making several appearances for the Swiss National Team. We can’t wait to see him between the sticks making acrobatic saves at the All-Star match. PS, it was recently announced that he will be joining us and leading a special Goalkeeper Clinic on June 11-13 in association with Fox Soccer Academy!
