Just a few weeks ago in Phoenix, the Alianza de Futbol National Finals were held, but the countdown to start the Alianza de Futbol Tour 2023 is already beginning.
As is the case each year, Alianza de Futbol will help thousands of young Hispanics to achieve their soccer dreams. Additionally, it is also a platform for competition and coexistence around the ball, which will have a presence in the cities with the largest Hispanic communities within the United States.
In each community, Alianza de Futbol will hold different tournaments where children and adults can join, as well as the Allstate Sueño Alianza scouting program.
Throughout the Allstate Sueño Alianza, club's scouts from Liga MX, Major League Soccer, MLS Next, USL, as well as Mexican National Team and U.S. Soccer will attend each city to spot the best Hispanic talent in the United States, who will also be looking to receive an invitation to the National Showcase.
The National Showcase is a dream week, where talented young players are watched by dozens of professional club scouts from Mexico and the United States, as well as from their respective national teams. This event culminates with the traditional scarf delivery ceremony, which could be a major moment to start off a successful career for each of the young players.
Allstate Sueño Alianza has success stories such as Santiago Muñoz, who plays for Newcastle United in England; Jonathan González, who plays for Minnesota United in the MLS; and Nico Carrera, who plays for Holstein Kiel in Germany.
Additionally, Mauricio Isais, who in the past 6 months was crowned Liga MX champion with Pachuca and was called up as a “sparring partner” to train with the Mexican National Team in the 2022 World Cup at Qatar; Elliana Ramírez, who debuted with Pachuca first team; Julie López, who was called up to play with the Mexican National Team in the 2022 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup.
At the last National Finals de Alianza de Futbol, Diego Buenrostro, selected in the Dallas Tryout, received up to nine invitations in the Allstate Sueño Alianza National Showcase to join: USL’s North Carolina FC, MLS’ Houston Dynamo, Columbus Crew and San Jose Earthquakes, and Liga MX’s Pachuca, Santos, America, Mazatlan and Chivas.
In 2023, Alianza de Futbol will aspire to increase the number of young players invited to the National Finals from the 67 athletes in 2022.
“The work done by Alianza de Futbol is beyond doubt. Soccer brings communities together, in Alianza we know how to recognize this cause and it would not be possible without our sponsor's help . I ask for applause for each one of them. They are the support, they get involved”, said Enrique Borja, a Mexican soccer legend.
This is how For Soccer Ventures (FSV) will pursue the growth and development of soccer for the Hispanic community within the United States.
