Maryland's trip to England in works for years
[COLLEGE MEN] Maryland, the 2013 NCAA Division I men's runner-up, will tour England in March with stops in Manchester and London that will include closed-door
friendlies against teams from Manchester United, Tottenham and Crystal Palace.
The Terps will training and compete at the Aon Training Complex (Manchester United), Tottenham Hotspur
Training Centre and Beckenham Town Football Club (Crystal Palace).
“This is a trip that has been in the works for many years and I am proud we have made this incredible
opportunity a reality,” Terps coach Sasho Cirovski said. “We have taken on a very ambitious schedule and I am looking forward to seeing how we
measure up. It may be unprecedented to have an American college team play three representative BPL teams in such a short span. These prestigious clubs are showing tremendous respect for the
University of Maryland by adding us to their schedule and we are very appreciative for the opportunity.”
The Terps will have the opportunity to attend Barclay’s Premier
League matches and training sessions throughout their stay.
