ACADEMY: Generation adidas Cup Returns to Toyota Soccer Center, U-17s in Championship Division

FRISCO- Major League Soccer announced the return of the Generation adidas Cup to Toyota Soccer Center and Toyota Stadium from April 13-20 with the FC Dallas U-17s competing in the Championship Division. 

Tournament play began with three regional tournaments (East, Central and West) featuring U-17 Academy teams from 21 MLS clubs. All 21 MLS U-17 Academies competed in two regional qualifying events from October 2018 to February 2019, with the eight top-finishing MLS clubs, including Dallas, advancing to play in the Championship Division where they will face off against eight international opponents.

The remaining 13 MLS clubs will play in the Premier Division against a field of seven international sides. Likewise, MLS U-15 teams played qualification rounds, with the top four teams advancing to the U-15 division Liga MX-MLS showdown. An exciting fifth and final matchup will pit the first-place Liga MX side against the top MLS club in a winner-take-all showdown for North American bragging rights. 

“The Generation adidas Cup is a world-class competition that offers MLS Academy teams the opportunity to compete against some of the most talented youth players across the globe. With the addition of more international clubs, we are excited to see the most competitive iteration of the tournament yet,” said MLS Executive Vice President of Competition and Player Relations Todd Durbin.
