Monolith Athletic Club Announces U.S. Soccer Portal

MARCELLUS, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 21, 2007 -- Monolith Athletic Club, LLC. (PINKSHEETS: MNAB) announced today its intention to develop and launch the premier U.S. soccer portal linking organizations, its players and managers with youth, high school, and college players and managers. The portal will provide approved premier online soccer training programs for players, coaches, associations, parents and teachers of the game and intends to create a centralized U.S. soccer community whose ultimate goal is to enhance U.S. soccer at the domestic and international levels. The portal intends to also host a robust fan/player interactive site with soccer subject chat rooms and bulletin boards managed by known U.S. and International soccer figures.

Monolith believes there is a clear need for full domestic collaboration among all levels and regions of U.S. soccer. Other than regional and national tournaments, no full service portal exists in the U.S. and this fact has created a local atmosphere which limits U.S. soccer development and progress at the international level. The United States has more official soccer players than any other nation in the world -- almost 18 million. Each player has 2 interested parents. So this site can minimally address a consistent annual data set of 50 million. The need is there, and so are the numbers.

The Company intends to develop the soccer portal with a model that will generate revenues from premium subscription based services and major advertisers.
