USL Academy


The USL Academy is designed to identify talented young players and provide them a clear roadmap from the developmental Academy level, to our premier W League team and, upon its launch, to the fully professional Super League.

Our goal is to promote and expose top teenage girls to the women’s game, be it at the professional and/or collegiate level.

FAQ's About the USL Academy Cup

It’s one of the most prestigious national tournaments in the United States, as it brings together the top youth prospects from all markets that have a USL club. The goal of the competition is to identify players with potential to reach the professional level and/or collegiate level. Scouts are present throughout the event to observe the most promising players. Like the MLS Festival, it’s an exceptional showcase for players, but it is instead intended for USL clubs.
From March 30th to April 2nd, 2023 at the Tournament SportsPlex of Tampa Bay.
FC Miami City will have 1 team for each age group: U13, U15 and U19. Our teams will compete in the first division of those 3 tournaments, and will play against the best teams in the country.
The answer is NO!  Players are not required to leave their full-time youth team to participate in the USL Academy Cup. Sanctioned by the U.S. Soccer Federation and Canadian Soccer Association, you can play the USL Academy Cup without getting released from your current club and still play for FC Miami City.
