Premier League Article Highlights Missouri State Men's Soccer
April 22, 2014
On April 16, the Missouri State Men’s Soccer Program was featured in a web article posted by the English Premier League. The article focuses on Youth Academies and the opportunities for players who do not get professional contract offers by the time they must transition out of youth competition. American universities, like Missouri State, become an opportunity for these soccer players to continue their playing careers.
Coach Michael Seabolt, instrumental in the recruitment efforts of many international student-athletes, is quoted in the story. Men's soccer signee Liam Priestley is the example the article uses of an acedemy player coming to the United States to play.

Missouri State has two games remaining on the spring exhibition schedule, with both games being played Sunday. The Bears will also hold their annual alumni game on Saturday afternoon on the Missouri State campus.
