PRESS RELEASE

  

BVB International Academy America is pleased to announce the launch of our newest International Academy in the great state of New Jersey. BVB International Academy New Jersey will begin operating immediately under the direction of Director of Coaching and owner Matt Skinner. 

Matt is a long-term resident of the Garden State and has successfully developed one of the premier Goalkeeping programs in the Northeast. In addition, after a successful playing career at several clubs in the UK, Matt has also coached multiple teams and Goalkeepers at the regional and national levels. Matt Skinner summed up his excitement. “I am excited to create a true Borussia Dortmund family environment here amongst the players, coaches, families and community. We want players who care about challenging themselves on and off the field and who have the courage to set the highest goals and then work to achieve them are the kinds of players, families and coaches we are looking for.  I am confident that our intense player-focus along with the BVB guidelines and philosophy will separate us from other clubs on the pitch. And our unyielding expectation for honesty, integrity and character will make our families proud to say they are a part of the Borussia Dortmund family. I am excited, eager and blessed to have this opportunity to represent Borussia Dortmund and BVB International Academy America.”  

BVB International Academy America is the official United States Partner of the famed Borussia Dortmund Academy in Dortmund, Germany. New Jersey is a key part of the United States strategic development plan. In addition to our current BVB IA America clubs, including Texas, Great Plains (Kansas area,) Illinois and Middle Tennessee, New Jersey will join our class of 2020 along with several additional affiliates this year. Growing through and with the close relationship with Borussia Dortmund and quality soccer people like Matt Skinner is key to our authenticity and impact on our players on and off the field. Any player in New Jersey who truly wants to reach their potential is encouraged to reach out to the BVB International Academy New Jersey and develop with the support of one of the world’s best development clubs.

“We are very excited to be bringing the International Academy and the Dortmund Way to New Jersey as well as having someone of Matt Skinner’s quality and integrity representing the BVB brand, history and heritage. It will be a great experience for all players and families who share the vision and intense development program presented by BVB IA New Jersey, Matt and his staff,” said Peter Brody, Chief Executive Officer, BVB International Academy America.
