NZ Olympic Soccer Champion Franchisee – Sensational Story
Tokyo, Japan– As the Olympics kick off this week Grasshopper Soccer Franchise takes time to reminisce of one of our famous past franchisees, Annalie Longo from Christchurch, New Zealand who will be taking part and representing New Zealand in soccer.
Annalie is a NZ Olympic Soccer Champion Franchisee who has taught thousands of children the Grasshopper Soccer way.
In 2013 Annalie and her partner Nikki joined the Grasshopper Soccer Franchise team in Christchurch, NZ. The program was an instant hit with thousands of children in the Cantebury region taking part of the program.
Grasshopper Soccer Franchisor Blake Brinklow said “Annalie’s passion for the game and love of kids really drove her business throughout the Cantebury region of NZ. It was amazing to have the Silver Ferns Star player and captain teaching children at grassroots level”.
“When Annalie joined she was still in her early 20’s and her career was just taking off. It has been amazing to watch her win W-Leauge championships and continue her amazing play representing New Zealand. Having her as part of our team was amazing and we wish her all the best for this year’s Olympics campaign with NZ”.
Now it is amazing to think that a NZ Olympic Champion Taught Grasshopper Soccer. The kids at the programs did not even realise the amazing teacher they had in Annalie being such a champion of the game.
