The Premier SuperCopa Is The USA's Best U9-U12 Tournament

The Premier SuperCopa, which begins tomorrow and streams live right here on FloFC, is unlike any youth soccer tournament in the United States; 184 teams, 411 games, 2,700 players, and 15,000 attendees. 

The game action starts on Thursday at MoneyGram Soccer Park in Dallas, Texas. The invitation-only event brings together boys and girls U9-U12 programs from around the country, some independent and some affiliated with MLS clubs. North Texas, where the SuperCopa has been hosted multiple times, has become one the country’s most prestigious stomping grounds for development. Events like the Dallas Cup, which FloFC streamed in April, has helped cultivate the beautiful game in the USA. 

The Premier SuperCopa is joining that great and growing tradition of American and Texan soccer. 

Since so many of the clubs travel great distances to participate in the tournament, the SuperCopa has made sure to extend the competition even for teams that get knocked out of the winners’ bracket. 

“The SuperCopa playoff format was great, as we played pretty much three one-goal games in our preliminary round but would not have advanced (the team the won the supercopa came from our group),” said John, associated with the Canton Celtics Soccer Club. “But due to the format were able to go on and win one of the playoff brackets. And for teams coming a long way, it makes it worth the trip.”

Here are the MLS youth academies represented:

  • Houston Dynamo
  • FC Dallas
  • Sporting KC
  • Colorado Rapids
  • Chicago Fire
  • & more

In addition, several top European clubs like Juventus and PSG have satellite youth programs participating. Besides MLS and European clubs, there are numerous other independent organizations that are some of the best in the business. 

In other words — and this is probably obvious by now — the Premier SuperCopa is the best place to be for U9-U12 soccer. You can find highlights of last year’s tournament on YouTube, and make sure to follow the SuperCopa on their social media channels: Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

“The Dallas Premier SuperCopa tournament is without a doubt is the best tournament in the country for top-level teams that want to have exposure to a professional environment. Playing against MLS academy tams and watching the pros at the MLS game was an experience of a lifetime for all our players and families. Just an amazing overall quality!”

— Jose Londono, TSC Boys Academy Director

Before the tournament starts, though, the SuperCopa offers much more for participating teams. Check out Wednesday’s schedule which includes a World Cup watch party, a morning skills clinic with Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, and Tisha Ventura-Hoch, and also a “World Cup Week Nerf Battle.”

The Gap Between US & Mexico Is Widening On The International Stage

Rewind the tape to last September, when the USA and Mexico faced off in a friendly in Nashville. Tyler Adams helped the USMNT grab a 1-0 victory under the guidance of interim manager Dave Sarachan. What might be most memorable from that game, though, was the towering center back Matt Miazga reminding Mexican youngster Diego Lainez just how much shorter the then 18-year-old was than Miazga.
