IFX University Program in Fürth, Germany. As reported on our social media some days ago, the signing of young talented Antonio Schoenegger by the German soccer club ASV VACH is official. The 18 years old North American soccer player was added to the ASV VACH II for 2018-19 season under the coach Fabian Müller who is pleased to add another quality player to his team and upgrade its depth at the striker position. IFX representatives in Germany stated that club´s managers showed their interest in Antonio after he underwent soccer tryouts held at the Vach complex in the district of Mannhof, and prior  to the summer transfer window closure.

Antonio is a native of Las Vegas (USA). He spent last season playing soccer for Galeta Xpress back home and said that he feels comfortable with his new teammates and coaches“They are very nice and very helpful to me in the transitional period that I am in right now from playing in America and playing in Germany and learning the new language”. Antonio decided to start his higher education in Germany alongside IFX University Program and thus, while he competes with his German club, he will study towards a Bachelor’s degree in International Management at the IFX partner German Business University school in Nürnberg.

Antonio lives next to other IFX participants in the IFX Haus, which is a fully furnished accommodation provided by IFX to its players in Fürth.
