EPYSA Awards VE Soccer Grant

Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer CEO Chris Branscome (middle) presents a commemorative check to Steve Feuchter and Scott Rieber of Vereinigung Erzgebirge.

Vereinigung Erzgebirge (VE) is one of the oldest, most respected social clubs in the Philadelphia area. Long a power in the majors division of adult amateur soccer, VE has reinvested in its youth programs in recent years. Success has followed. This year alone, VE had a US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup Champion (16U Boys) and a National Presidents Cup third place finisher (18U girls).

Now the club is looking to build on its strong foundation. It added a new turf field recently and, with the help of an Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer development grant, will add lights in the near future. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer CEO Chris Branscome presented a commemorative check to the leadership at VE as part of the Bucks-Mont Oktoberfest. Thousands were in attendance as the club honored its two National Presidents Cup medalists.

Congratulations to VE on its continued support and celebration of youth soccer.
