The 2018 Super Y League Finals, set to take place from Dec. 7-11, will feature 120 teams from across the nation competing at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
Players and clubs will gather for the ultimate event of the Super Y League’s 20th Anniversary Season, including those from the league’s new Southwest Division for the first time. Attended by collegiate, U.S. Soccer and USL scouts, players will have an opportunity to impress and earn an invitation to the 2019 USL Experience, which will be hosted by a to-be-announced USL club next spring.
SYL Director Jordan Rouse: “The SYL Finals are a keystone event for our league and is one of the unique features it provides for players to earn exposure on a national scale. It’s always exciting to see the mix of clubs from across the country compete against one another. Whether it’s a long-time regular such as DDYSC Wolves, or a first-year newcomer like City FC’s U12 Boys in 2017, each team and every player enters on equal footing with an opportunity to prove themselves against the best the SYL has to offer.”
The 2018 Super Y League Finals has adopted a "Stay to Play" policy, with all hotel reservations required to be booked through the USL. This rule does not apply to teams commuting to the finals within a 70-mile radius of IMG Academy fields. You can find more information about booking hotels in the FAQ section below.
IMG Academy will be charging $10 for parking each day or you can purchase a $50 all-tournament pass. You will be able to purchase parking passes at registration on December 6 or at the facility entrance each day.
All clubs must send one team representative to registration/check-in on Thursday, December 6th. You will be required to bring a player pass for each player listed on the official roster that you submitted to the league office. You must also bring a field pass for any coach or manager who will be present on the team sideline. (Each team may have a maximum of three staff members present on the bench.)
Super Y League staff will cross check each pass to ensure the players are listed on the roster. Any player not listed on the roster will be unable to participate. In addition, teams will be required to bring player and coach passes to each game; field marshals will check each team in prior to kickoff.
Below you will find details on time and location for check in. Please let us know if you have any questions.
