Las Vegas, NV, March 4, 2016– Thanks to TEAM FORD at US95 and Ann Road, Las Vegas soccer fans, players, parents, friends and family have the opportunity to attempt the breaking of a 5-year-old soccer dribbling world record on Thursday, March 17, 2016 at 7pm at the Desert Breeze Soccer Complex (South Fields). Their donations along with HEAT FC Coach Tom Amick and Kaempfer Crowell law firm enable all participants to join for FREE!
The current world record was set in July 2011 by United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Rafah, Palestine attracting 2,068 participants dribbling a soccer ball around a cone course. Las Vegas-based Acre of Diamonds, a not-for-profit organization, is poised to break the world record by attracting Las Vegas’ passionate soccer players, fans and additional support from one of the nation’s largest College Soccer Showcases, 2016 Players College Showcase. Acre of Diamonds has limited the number to the first 2,500 participants who desire to be part of a Guinness World Record.
“We believe Las Vegas soccer players, supporters and thousands of visiting players from around the country have a bona-fide chance to get in the record books that will forever change Las Vegas,” Angie Ellison, Executive Director of Nevada Youth Soccer excitedly says.
World Record participants can register at www.acreofdiamonds.org or on http://www.active.com/las-vegas-nv/soccer/acre-of-diamonds-2016 whereby each participant will receive a numbered world record attempt wristband, world record attempt certificate, including a special appearance by the first contestant on The Voice, Tarralyn Ramsey, as she sings the national anthem and her hit single, “Champion.”
“We are excited as Team Ford (US 95 and Ann Road) is the “official” sponsor who will own the title of “World Record Holder,” exclaims event chairperson Brian Kaskie. Event sponsorships are still available as we desire to benefit many non-profit organizations such as Southern Nevada Boys and Girls Club, Homeless Teens Project 150; Michelle Akers Horse Rescue; and other Nevada youth soccer organizations.
Anyone over the age of 10 years old can be one of 2,500 participants! Be sure to sign up for updated news on www.acreofdiamonds.org.
