Flying Horse to Host German Division 1 (Bundesliga) Soccer Team as a Part of Colorado Cup 2016.During the week of July 10 – 16, Division 1 German soccer will come to Colorado Springs. FSV Mainz ’05, a division 1 Bundesliga team who competes in the same league with Bayern Munich (aka World Cup Champions), will be in Colorado Springs for one week of pre-season training and conditioning prior to the opening of their 2016-17 Bundesliga season. The team’s “headquarters” during their stay in Colorado Springs will be our own Lodge at Flying Horse, including all players, coaches, team management and sponsors.
The week-long “Celebration of Soccer” will include a number of events centered around the team’s training sessions, which will be conducted at the U.S. Air Force Academy. These will include youth soccer camps and coaches’ clinics, as well “friendlies” games against the Colorado Springs Switchbacks and a Division 1 Mexican team yet to be announced. Organizer for the event is Funding Ones Freedom, owned by Justin Rose, a Colorado native, former professional soccer player and now an entrepreneur living and working in Frankfurt, Germany. Funding Ones Freedom is a social enterprise organization which partners with businesses, non-profits and individuals to help youth in need in a variety of ways, using the game of soccer as a vehicle to promote international cooperation and education through the sponsorship of youth soccer camps and international exchange programs. In 2015, Funding Ones Freedom assisted a number of exchange students, youth soccer teams and individual soccer players to help them aspire to achieve their life potential. More information on the organization is available on their website, www.fundingsonesfreedom.com.
Also associated with this event will be a business forum, which will be held at The Club at Flying Horse on July 15, from 6:00 – 8:00 P.M. This by-invitation event will include Mainz ’05 players, team management, accompanying team sponsors, representatives from the German/American Chamber of Commerce of Colorado, local media and government officials. Invitations will also be extended to all local individuals and businesses who choose to become sponsors for the event. The venue will provide a casual, unstructured venue for those wishing to dialog and learn about the business of international soccer, discuss opportunities for doing business in both the U.S. and Germany, and even get some autographs if desired.

Construction Update: The Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse.
Anyone who has built a home knows that a lot of work has to be done before you get to move in and get settled. Planning, execution, patience, changes, and the continuous anticipation go hand-in-hand. The same can be said about building the new Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse. And like most Flying Horse Club Members, residents of the community and business leaders in our area are all very eager to see these doors open to welcome the first guests.
The Flying Horse team has been working diligently on creating and executing the action plans set in motion to ensure the success of our new addition. “By successfully building upon the decade-long Flying Horse brand and reputation, our intentions are to be a destination property that will host a variety of corporate meetings and events requiring overnight accommodations. Given the onsite amenities, here at Flying Horse, The Lodge is an ideal property to host out of town families on vacation as well as friends and families of our residents and members during the holidays.” said Fredo Killing, Managing Director. With only 48 guest rooms available, the overall impact of guest traffic at The Club will be fairly minimal, as there is plenty of availability in the restaurant, by the pool, and in the fitness areas.
The projected opening timeframe for The Villas is mid-Spring and mid-Fall for the Lodge. You can follow the progress of construction on the Flying Horse Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/flyinghorsecolorado.
To date, the framing of the Lodge is nearly complete, and all four frames of the Villas are up and the roofing is nearly complete on each. The interior walls are going up, windows are in, and the water, electricity and HVAC systems are nearly done. The hand troweled wall texture, hardwood flooring, bathroom tile work, exterior stone work and concrete stamped patios are in the making.
The Lodge and Villas at Flying Horse is accepting early-bird reservations in advance of the actual opening of The Villas and The Lodge. To book your stay, please call 844-768-2684 or visit www.lodgeatflyinghorse.com/reservations.
