Regional qualifying for the 13th edition of the Generation adidas Cup begins at the Power Training Complex! Running from October 11-14, Chester, PA., will play host as one of the regional qualifying sites for one of the premier competitive youth soccer tournaments in North America.
The Union will play host to regional rivals New York Red Bulls, New England Revolution, DC United along with qualifying foes Real Salt Lake and Inter Miami CF. All matches are free and open to the public and we'll be streaming all the contests for fans to check out all the Under-17 and Under-15 matches.
Regional qualifying features MLS teams split across three different groups (A, B, C). Qualifying matches in each group will take place over 2019 Columbus Day weekend and 2020 President's Day weekend (win = 3pts, PK shootout win = 2pts, PK shootout loss = 1pt, loss = 0pts).
The top two teams from each group will advance to play in Division 1 of the 2020 Generation adidas Cup Finals at the Toyota Soccer Center in Frisco, Texas. The third and fourth placed teams from each group will play in Division 2 and the remaining teams will play in Division 3.
Also, the Under-15 age group (players born on or after Jan. 1, 2005) will again be represented at this year's finals. 24 U-15 MLS clubs go through Regional Qualifying. The four group winners will advance to the Final Event to compete in an 8-team international challenge.
