The curtain has fallen on the thrilling 2023 Tour of Alianza de Fútbol. Eight metropolises dressed to the nines to witness the adrenaline and passion of the Allstate Sueño Alianza tryouts and their exciting tournaments.
The turf quivered under the feet of more than 23,000 soccer players who gave their all for a dream, looking to inscribe their names on the golden pages of Alianza de Fútbol. The ViX Alianza Femenil clearly reflected the growing passion for women's soccer. The eyes of the scouts were fixed on every play, and the rise in female participation did not go unnoticed, growing by 36% compared to the previous year. In an age that demands equality, Alianza waved the flag of commitment to women, who became protagonists in the development of the tournament.
The Verizon Copa Alianza, the adult amateur crown, saw 2,134 gladiators fight for supremacy. In contrast, the Ford Copita Alianza, the jewel of youth amateur tournaments, hosted 16,720 budding stars aiming to lift the champions' trophy. The ViX Alianza Femenil proved to be more than just numbers, with 990 warriors defending the colors of 45 teams, seeking glory in eight different categories. On the other hand, Alianza Coaching Clinics strengthened the sport from the technical trenches, with 1,504 coaches thirsty for knowledge endorsed by US Soccer.
The sporting lightning struck with Alianza 5v5, gathering 2,740 fans who dreamed of the championship in a festivity where not everyone could be crowned. The crown jewel, Allstate Sueño Alianza, reaffirmed its mission: to be the bridge to professionalism. With the presence of scouts from titan teams such as Pachuca, Juárez, Atlas, and more, 3,791 young talents sought to shine in the eyes of dozens of recruiters, hoping for a call that would change their lives.
The audience responded. Over 200,000 souls filled the pitches, supporting and witnessing the football magic in the most prominent circuit for Hispanics in the United States. The last stop, El Paso, prepares us for the finale in Phoenix, Arizona, where Allstate Sueño Alianza will give its last golden tickets to Hispanic promises in the United States.
From Alianza de Fútbol, a sincere thank you to the protagonists of this tour, who left sweat and tears in every match. Now, the focus is set: the 2024 Tour already looms. See you on the pitch!
