Boca Raton Football Club is excited to announce the signing of Vinicius da Silva Pereira, better known as Xixo, for the 2015 APSL Fall Tournament.
Recently with Gimnástica Segoviana Club de Fútbol, of the Tercera División in Spain, Xixo comes to Boca Raton Football Club after a short stint with Miami Dade Football Club.
“I’m very excited to be a part of a championship quality team,” said Xixo. “This team is young, experienced, and ready, which makes me anxious to get on the field with my teammates to play.”
A member of the Brazilian National Beach Soccer Team, Xixo has won two championships for his Native Country in Beach Soccer.
“We are excited to add someone of Xixo’s pedigree into our club,” says head coach Marcelo Castillo. “His experience and skills will be very important to us as we focus on the US Open Cup that is set to start next month.”
“The coaching staff and ownership group is very professional,” adds Xixo. “They have been very welcoming and have made me felt like a part of the family from the start.”
Xixo will suit up for Boca Raton FC’s matchup versus Miami Fusion this Saturday at Lockhart Stadium. Tickets for the game can still be purchased at www.strikers.com/tickets. Use the promo code SFCC for discounted tickets.
