About the Partnership:
“We are very excited to be able to bring this partnership with the Red Bulls into the Rockaways," Peter Touros, Director of Kosmos FC - TST said. "We believe it will result in a truly world-class soccer experience for all of our players.”
The partnership with the Red Bulls will enable Kosmos FC - TST to grow our program to the next level, with the Red Bulls proven development framework and training expertise. This will allow Kosmos FC - TST players to develop their abilities not just in the short term, but through a multi-year development framework.
Kosmos FC - TST is the largest of 3 divisions of Kosmos FC in New York. The organization was founded in 1996, by Andreas Touros - Peter's father, and initially focused on bringing the sport to underprivileged innercity children. The Club now has 11 New York State Championshps under its belt, with over 150 players committed to play in College since 2007, as well as 7 club players selected for the US Youth National Team/Pool.
“We were so excited when we first had the chance to speak with Peter Touros and Kosmos FC," said Bryan Alcantara, Red Bulls Youth Programs Regional Manager. "Peter and his family have a long history of developing players through the NY area and we knew this was great fit for us. We share the same player-centered philosophy and strive to give players the best experience. We are looking forward to working with Peter and his staff to continue providing a fun and challenging learning environment for players.”
Kosmos FC - TST has attended multiple international European tournaments, including Greece, England and Spain - the clubs biggest accomplishment came in the summer of 2019 when two of our teams qualified for the Barcelona Summer Cup International Tournament in Spain. We left victorious with our Kosmos FC TST Boys 2005 not only taking first place, but doing so undefeated, and our Kosmos FC - TST Boys 2008/09 taking second place. ‘Best player of the Tournament’ and ‘Golden Glove’ were also awarded to Kosmos FC - TST players.
