Dayton, June 30, 2020 – Dutch Lions Capital Group USA LLC and KingsTalent announced today the start of an official partnership between both companies.
Since 2015 KingsTalent (https://kingstalent.com) helps talented athletes from the Netherlands to follow their dream and become a student-athlete in the United States. Many of them are soccer players. KingsTalent is in contact with over 5.000 college coaches all across the United States of America in different divisions: NCAA D1, D2, D3, NAIA, NJCAA and USCAA. KingsTalent is led by Paul de Koning, who played for the Long Island University’s Men’s soccer team in the NCAA Division 1 in the North East Conference. Paul de Koning commented on the partnership: “We are very happy to partner up with Dutch Lions FC. For our players it is another chance to expose themselves in the USA – play at the next level. For us as KingsTalent this is a unique opportunity to broaden our service.”
Mike Mossel, CEO of Dutch Lions Capital Group USA LLC also reflected on the partnership: “I am excited to see this partnership finally taking shape. Paul and I have discussed working together more closely for several years now. I am convinced it is a win-win situation for both our organizations. The five Dutch Lions FC Men’s and Women’s teams can serve as a great steppingstone for KingsTalent players in college in the USA towards the professional level. And our clubs will be able to recruit great players that are already in the USA and have experience playing in the college system, so we know much better how they will perform when we add them to our rosters. Plus, they have a tremendous network, both in players throughout Europe that want to play in the USA as well as coaches and universities in the USA. I look very much forward to our partnership.”
