Three-Team Training Camp Kicks Off 2019 for U.S. Men's Youth National Teams

CHICAGO (Jan. 4, 2019) — The U.S. Under-20, Under-19 and Under-17 Men’s National Teams will start 2019 with a three-team training camp from Jan. 4-13 at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

The camp begins an important year for the Men’s Youth National Teams.

Coming off of last month’s Nike International Friendlies, the U-17 MNT continues its preparation for the 2018 Concacaf U-17 Championship this spring, where the team will aim to qualify for October’s 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Peru.

The camp will feature three games between the U.S. squads and a to-be-determined opponent that will be open to the public.
