LAPFC Selected by US Soccer for Exclusive Event

Youth Futsal Invitational

ABOUT U.S. SOCCER FUTSAL EVENT

U.S. Soccer, in partnership with Nike, will host two youth futsal invitational events in March and April as part of a new initiative in the development of elite U.S. youth players. Last fall, U.S. Soccer announced that futsal will be a part of the U-13/14 Development Academy calendar.

U.S. Soccer and Nike are hosting an invitational youth futsal event from April 19-24 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., for U-13/14 teams (players born on or after Jan. 1, 1999) from the top clubs in the area. U.S. Soccer will provide a coaching symposium to prepare participants for the event and utilize the event to identify up-and-coming talent for future Training Center and National Team selections.

LOS ANGELES INVITATIONAL
