Future Stars Cup 2015 Schedule

Vail Resorts announced today its schedule for the upcoming winter season, kicking off with the Future Stars Cup, a series of competitions for visiting international coaches to showcase their athletes from age 3 to age 16. SSCV will provide the venue and snow at the Vail Mountain Resort for the event, which will award two under-18 champions in alpine, freeski and moguls (formerly called ski cross, a special event within slalom).


The future of MLS Homegrown talent will be on display this week, as 17 MLS Academy teams will participate in the U-17 competition, in addition to 11 premier international clubs – the most ever to partake in the Generation adidas Cup since their inclusion in 2013. Representing some of the most accomplished clubs on the world stage, this year’s participants include Mexican giants C.F. Monterrey, C.D. Guadalajara and Pumas UNAM, Argentine powerhouse River Plate and Spanish forces Valencia CF and Villarreal CF, as well as Qatar’s Aspire Academy, Chile’s Club Universidad de Chile, Brazil’s C.A. Paranaense and Japan’s FC Tokyo. Rounding out the international contingent is the Mexican U-17 national team, which marks the first time a national squad has competed in the tournament.

The 2016 Generation adidas Cup will also deliver the first MLS Academy action for future expansion clubs Atlanta United – which is set to join the league in 2017 – and LAFC, as both teams will field U-12 Academy sides in the second annual U-12 tournament. The small-sided 7-v-7 competition will be held at the Toyota Soccer Center from March 24-26 and will feature a total of 12 MLS Academy teams (Atlanta United, Chicago Fire, Colorado Rapids, D.C. United, FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, LAFC, New York Red Bulls, Orlando City SC, Portland Timbers, Sporting Kansas City, Toronto FC). Four international U-12 clubs will also join, including Villarreal CF (Spain), Real Club Celta de Vigo (Spain), Queretaro FC (Mexico) and C.D. Guadalajara (Mexico). (Source: www.orlandocitysc.com)
