The American FootGolf League (AFGL) celebrates its fourth anniversary today. It is a great occasion to announce their World Cup team.
"I never dreamed we'd be in almost 500 courses across the country, and receive recognition and acknowledgement from every major golf and soccer organization in such a short time," says AFGL founder Roberto Balestrini. "When we first started, no one understood what FootGolf is, and worse, no one could understand me telling them what it is. Thank goodness my wife Laura accepted a very active role in our development and growth as president of the AFGL."
Roberto Balestrini concludes, the next stop in the AFGL's journey is the FootGolf World Cup in Argentina, next January. "It is a dream come true! We are talking with several major sponsors intrigued with the idea of attaching their names and brands to FootGolf. We are planning more regional, national and international events for 2016, and developing new tools and ideas to assist our FootGolf facilities to grow the game."
The AFGL is sending sixteen players and their coach to the World Cup. Here is the list:
Jorge Barragan Jr.
Richard Z. Matteoli
Mark A. Woodward
Marcelo Landau (Coach)
