CCL will be sending two teams to participate in the Gothia Cup: CCL United Premiership 2002 Boys and Girls. If accepted, these teams will play for the coveted Tipselit Trophy. Otherwise they will compete in the 18s Elite Division.
CCL will also sent four teams to participate in the Vildbjerg Cup: CCL United Premiership 2004 Boys and Girls, and CCL United Championship 2004 Boys and Girls. Premiership teams will participate in the Elite Division while Championship teams will participate in the Championship Division.
Unique to CCL, we will provide top-level CCL players a one-of-a-kind youth professional soccer immersion experience versus some of the World’s very best youth academy teams. Along with a dedicated team training camp at FCN (Football Club Nordsjælland) prior to each Cup, teams will receive exceptional international friendly matches. The complete experience is second to none. Note: Gothia Cup allows three over-age players to participate on a team. Thus, top 2001 players may also be selected into the 2002 team. We reserve the right to guest play-up 2004s into the 2002s at any time during the trip.
There will be a few key means of identification for participation and selection into the program:
1) CCL Director, Technical Staff and Coaching Staff recommendations. Interested players should also connect with their club’s TD/DOC.
2) Scouting during CCL seasonal play through Fall and at the CCL December College Showcase.
3) CCL United ID session #1: January 5, 2019. Glover Park, Glenn Allen, VA (directions). Times TBD.
4) CCL United ID Session #2: January 6, 2019. Glover Park, Glenn Allen, VA (directions). Times TBD.
Note: Only recommended players are invited to CCL United ID Sessions.
5) Final Scouting and Evaluation to be completed by February 3, 2019.
6) Identification and recommendation from opposing CCL Directors, Technical Staff, and Coaching Staff throughout CCL league play.
As the destination league for the college bound soccer players, we have created the CCL College Combine. The Combine is for all eligible CCL players to participate in training sessions led by top college coaches. This Combine will also provide the CCL United Coaching Staff the time to assess and evaluate players for any final roster spots on a CCL United team. These opportunities are only available to CCL players!
“It is nice to know that the leadership in the CCL sees the need to generate programs for our talented players to get great exposure,”
– 2018 CCL United players Quincey Etienne and Jayden Gonsalves who received NCAA Division 1 offers based on their CCL United performances.
