CHICAGO (Feb. 17, 2010) â€“ U.S. Soccerâ€™s Coaching Education Department will conduct a Coaching Symposium on March 25-26, 2011 in conjunction with the U.S. Menâ€™s National Teamâ€™s match against two-time World Cup Champion Argentina in East Rutherford. N.J.
The game, which will be played at the new Meadowlands Stadium, will be the second game in 2011 against a South American opponent. The U.S. opened the year with a 1-1 draw against Chile in January.
â€œThe focus of this symposium is to watch, interact and learn from how our national coaching staff and team prepare,â€ said newly appointed Director of Coaching Education Dave Chesler who will oversee the two-day symposium. â€œOpportunities like these to come watch our menâ€™s national team play a team like Argentina and interact with our coaching staff are extremely beneficial to any coach looking to expand their soccer knowledge.â€
