Academy U17s at MLS NEXT Flex
/

Philadelphia Union Academy U17's put on a show on Sunday afternoon, erupting for four goals against CF Montreal at MLS NEXT Flex in Maryland.

Held at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds, Maryland, the competition will feature 64 of the best MLS NEXT clubs from the U15, U16, U17 and U19 age groups, with 16 teams in each age division able to secure a place in the impending MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs.

The 2021-22 MLS NEXT season culminates with the 2022 MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs, which will occur at Toyota Soccer Center in Frisco, Texas from June 25 to July 3. That event will feature the top 128 teams in the program, breaking down as 32 from each age group.

Clubs in each of the four age groups qualified for MLS NEXT Flex on a points-per-game basis in each of MLS NEXT’s eight divisions. Qualifying clubs were assigned into 16 groups of four via a draw in the month of April, and the champions of each of these groups will automatically qualify for the MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs.

The Boys in Blue were led by a first half hat trick from Marcos Zambrano against the Canadian side that saw the Union go to the top of their group with one more match to play.
