The 2019 USL Experience will be hosted by the Tampa Bay Rowdies and held in the league’s home market.
“We’re looking forward to bringing the USL Experience to the Tampa Bay region in 2019,” Rowdies Chief Operating Officer Lee Cohen said. “The level of youth soccer around Tampa Bay and throughout the country continues to rise and we’re excited to bring these prospects into our professional environment to show them what they’re striving for. With the USL office based in our backyard and the two brands working together, it will be a valuable learning experience for everyone involved and we’re grateful for the opportunity.”
72 of the nation’s top youth talents will be selected to take part in the exciting experience, which is tabbed to take place in early April. Players will receive invitations to the event in January 2019.
The USL Experience provides additional educational programming, such as workshops and presentations, a stadium and facility tour, access to Tampa Bay Rowdies players and staff, competitive training, match play and much more. They will have meals, lodging and training gear provided at no cost.
