Two teams from the Barça Residency Academy Arizona have qualified for the final phase of the most important academy tournament in the United States of America, MLS Next, for the first time. Both the Under-17s and Under-19s will travel to Dallas towards the end of June after finishing as champions of the Southwest Division, which includes teams from the states of California and Arizona.
The Under-17 team’s triumph includes remaining undefeated in the 12 games played, featuring ten wins and two draws, and finishing three points ahead of second-placed Phoenix Rising FC. The Under-19s also had a remarkable campaign, with eight wins and three draws in 11 games, finishing ahead of LA Surf Soccer Club. Barça also had two Under-16 players in their ranks for the final few months after four players signed professional contracts in January, namely Brooklyn Raines, Korede Osundina, Emmanuel Johnson, and Daron Iskenderian.
