Academy U17s GA Cup

GA Cup: U-17s Qualify for Champions Bracket

New York City FC Boys Academy enjoyed another successful weekend at the Generation adidas Cup qualifiers in Atlanta.

In the 21st edition of one of North America’s premier competitive youth soccer tournaments, NYCFC U-17s sealed qualifications for the Champions Bracket with two wins from two.

City entered this weekend’s action in second place out of seven teams in Group C, following qualifying matches in Philadelphia and New England and won both of their games in Atlanta to top their group.

Our U-17s kicked off with a 2-0 win vs. Orlando on Saturday, before a 4-0 victory over Red Bulls saw them leapfrog their local rivals into top spot and ensured that the Boys in Blue will compete in the top bracket in Texas this spring.

NYCFC U-15s were also in action in Atlanta with 20 other MLS teams, all competing to reach the first U-15 finals of the competition vs. Liga MX opposition.

A 4-3 penalty shootout win over Orlando on Saturday got our boys off to a winning start, before a goalless draw against Red Bulls rounded off their qualifying campaign, leaving the team with nine points from six games.

NYCFC won the U-17 Generation adidas Cup Premier Division title back in 2017 with a team containing future Homegrown signings Justin Haak and Joe Scally, before they went on to lift the DA National title in 2018.
