Ambassadors

We are excited to announce our FC Highland Ambassador Program. We are fortunate to be connected with some amazing people in the soccer world and some of them have agreed to partner with our club to help provide valuable insight into how we should develop our players. Our ambassadors are still involved in the game at the highest level and we lean on them whenever we need to make decisions that involve the development of our players. They will also connect with our players and coaches to help them understand what it’s like at the top, how to get there, and the habits and traits needed to be successful in the game. Keep an eye out for content from our ambassadors.
