The moment has arrived!
The 2023 Alianza de Fútbol Tour is about to begin, and its first stop will be in Denver.
The most important Hispanic soccer circuit in the United States arrives accompanied by its five properties: Allstate Sueño Alianza, Ford Copita Alianza, Verizon Copa Alianza, ViX Alianza Femenil, and Alianza 5v5.
This year, the Ford Qué Golazo de Grants program is also included, which will award a $5,000 scholarship for education to a young individual in each city of the tour and enrollment in Access U.
The Aurora Sport Park will be the venue for the first stage of the 2023 Alianza de Fútbol Tour.
While young athletes continue to register for the Allstate Sueño Alianza tryouts in the categories 2007-2008, 2009-2011, 2004-2006, and 2002-2009 in the women's division, and Alianza 5v5 keep receiving registrations, available spots for the Verizon Copa Alianza, Ford Copita Alianza, and ViX Alianza Femenil in their respective categories have been filled.
We anticipate a fantastic weekend filled with passion, adrenaline, and healthy camaraderie, where hundreds of young individuals aspiring to pursue a professional soccer career will gather alongside different teams seeking glory in the various tournaments to be held.
Regarding the Allstate Sueño Alianza tryouts program, Hispanic youth have the hope of following in the footsteps of successful players like Santiago Muñoz (Santos), Jonathan González (Minnesota United), Nico Carrera (FSV Zwickau), Mauricio Isáis (Toluca), and Elliana Ramírez (Pachuca) in the women's division.
They are all examples of success and represent different generations of Alianza, serving as our standard-bearers.
This weekend in Denver, Allstate Sueño Alianza will be attended by scouts from MLS Next, Colorado Rapids, Club Necaxa, and Pachuca's Tuzos.
They will be observing the young athletes with an eye toward the National Showcase, which will take place at the end of the year. Invitations to this event will be presented during the traditional scarf ceremony.
The year 2023 promises to be a promising one for the Alianza de Fútbol Tour following the success achieved in 2022 when it made a strong comeback after a pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event attracted over 34,000 attendees and featured 2,000 participants, with Houston setting a record by registering 58 teams in Alianza 5v5.
Last year, 64 players were selected for the National Showcase, which drew more than 30 talent scouts from Liga MX, MLS, Liga de Expansión, MLS Next, and Barcelona's Academy.
This event can be a crucial stepping stone for players to secure contracts with the club led by Xavi Hernández, recent champions of Spain's First Division.
Out of the 64 selected players, 60 received their respective scarves and were recruited. We are ready for the kick-off of the 2023 Tour: Denver, Houston, New York, San José, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, and El Paso; here we come!
