The premier international soccer tournament will take place Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-27

San Diego, CA., January 16, 2024— Surf Sports, the nationally leading organization in elite youth soccer tournaments, is proud to announce the launch of Club América Cup, an exciting new event in partnership with Club América, Mexico’s 2023 Primera División Champions and one of the world’s most prestigious professional teams. The 2024 event will be the premier international youth soccer competition showcasing top teams from North, Central, and South América, ultimately crowning the Champions of the Americas across each Boys and Girls age group from U19 through U8.

In its inaugural year, Club América Cup top brackets will be played as the Grupo de Campeones for Boys 2010-2012 and Girls 2005/6 and 2008s, with international matchups featured in our Grupo Internacional de Campeones for Boys 2010. The anticipation is already building with commitments from top academies across each continent including Club América (Mexico), Liga Deportiva Alajuelense (Costa Rica), Sociedad Esportiva Palmeiras (Brazil), Los Angeles FC, LA Galaxy, and San Diego Surf (U.S.)

“The Gold Cup and Copa América exist for professionals, but there is no event for youth to test themselves in the same way. Surf Sports is thrilled to join forces with an exceptional partner like Club América, together committed to bringing a world-class event for the first-time to San Diego, a city rich with Mexican culture and a vibrant soccer community. We look forward to Club América’s academy teams playing stateside, and welcome top teams from across the Americas to compete at the highest level against a growing list of professional youth academies”, said Brian Enge, Surf Sports COO.

Santiago Baños, Sport President of Club América said, “we’re very excited to continue our participation in this new chapter of the tournament Club America Cup. For us it is very important to continue developing our youth categories. The tournament clearly, will help them increase their growth in all aspects.” 

Over 15,000 young footballers and 850 teams will compete across three facilities: Surf Sports Park in Del Mar, CA, plus nearby SoCal Sports Complex and Galway Downs. Surf Sports Park is recognized as one of the nation’s top natural grass facilities in one of the most beautiful locations in Southern California, just 3 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

Surf Sports is nationally renowned for its professionalism, elite facility and event management, high-quality coaching, and, most importantly, a deep commitment to athletic development and the life-changing power of sports. Surf’s mission is to create experiences and opportunities for kids, and the organization. 

Club América Cup will kick off Surf’s 2024 premier events, and in the coming weeks will release the dates and application information for the rest of the slate of events including Man City Cup, Surf Cup, and College Cup.
