Right to Dream AND San Diego MLS Club

On the 18th May, 2023, Major League Soccer (the MLS) announced that San Diego would become the 30th club to join the League. A joint venture between Mr. Mansour and the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, the new club is a platform for delivering tangible benefits to the San Diego community, while nurturing talent from across the United States and beyond.

Through Mr Mansour, San Diego will be part of Right to Dream, the global soccer community of world-class academies, clubs and partners with an innovative approach to identifying and nurturing talent – on and off the pitch.

Founded by Tom Vernon in 1999 as an Academy in Ghana, Right to Dream provides extremely talented children facing barriers to achieving their potential with the opportunity to build a better life for themselves and their families via a global organisation of professional football clubs, youth football academies, and educational networks.

Right to Dream now encompasses school programmes in Ghana and Egypt, offers scholarships to the US, and professional clubs in Denmark, Egypt, and the US, which provide a professional platform for Right to Dream’s young talent.

EPP and FC Nordsjaelland

Right to Dream bought the Danish Superliga team FC Nordsjaelland (FCN) in 2015. Building on FCN’s tradition of developing young players from across Europe, the acquisition has further enhanced this reputation and provided a pipeline for talented young Right to Dream academy players to enter European competition. In the 2023 season, FCN fielded the youngest team in Europe while competing at the top of the Danish Superliga.

EPP has supported FCN in hiring senior leaders into its organisation, supporting recruitment,  and developing club ways of working, culture, and long-term organisational plans.
