YOUNG MEN BY THE SEA: PRO BEACH SOCCER TOUR EXPANDS SCHEDULE

          An expanded Pro Beach Soccer Tour schedule of up to 20
     events, featuring former World Cup and Olympic players, will
     kick off with the Miami Cup this weekend, one of three U.S.
     domestic events scheduled for '97.  The tour, owned by Beach
     Soccer Co., a subsidiary of PA-based Viking Graham Sports
     Group, has a global TV package that goes to over 120
     countries and made its U.S. network TV debut on ABC's "Wide
     World of Sports" last summer.  Sponsors of the tour, which
     "is expected to be brought under the umbrella" of FIFA in
     the "near future," include Umbro, Coca-Cola, Daewoo,
     Wrangler, Gold's Gym, Dr. Pepper, Trident, Citizen, Konica
     and Mild Seven (Pro Beach Soccer Tour).
