FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UFA TO RENAME THE FALL CLASSIC TOURNAMENT
Philip Broome Legacy Fall Classic
(August 26, 2022 - Cumming, GA) - United Futbol Academy (UFA) is pleased to announce that we are changing the name of our annual November tournament to honor the legacy of Philip Broome, longtime UFA and Milton HS coach. Philip brought a lot to the game of soccer in this community and the club felt that an annual remembrance of him is one way that we can honor him.
In addition to being a loving coach, family man, community leader and motivator, Philip was a big figure in the sports community. He made a lasting impact both on and off the field, winning state championships and winning the hearts of the parents and players alike. His infectious personality and charisma will truly be missed by so many. We can’t think of a better way of honoring his legacy than having the tournament be named in his honor as the Philip Broome Legacy Fall Classic.
Additionally, UFA will give $5,000 from the tournament proceeds to the Philip Broome Legacy Scholarship fund. UFA high school seniors preparing for college will be eligible to apply for this scholarship and a winner will be selected by the Broome Family to player who best demonstrates their leadership and motivation, as did Coach Philip. Apply for the scholarship here.
The tournament will be held on November 19 & 20, 2022 and we at UFA are honored to have called Coach Philip our friend, to have worked with him for well over a decade and to help honor his memory. Read more about Philip Broome.
