Since 2016, the USL Experience has provided a platform for many of the country’s top youth players to showcase their skills in a professional setting. Each year, a combination of 72 boys and girls players are chosen across various age groups to represent their clubs on a national scale at USL X.
With previous stops in Cincinnati, San Antonio, Phoenix abd Tampa, the 2020 USL Experience heads to Birmingham, Alabama – the home of the Birmingham Legion.
The USL Experience will occur from Thursday, April 16th through Sunday, April 19th, 2020 in Birmingham, Alabama.
The first-ever USLX was hosted in Cincinnati back in 2016 in conjunction with FC Cincinnati, before traveling to San Antonio (San Antonio FC) in 2017, Phoenix (Phoenix Rising FC) in 2018 and Tampa (Tampa Bay Rowdies) in 2019.
USLX is designed for the players, and offers insight into the life of a professional. Upon arrival, players will be exposed to media sessions, on-field training, game experiences and sight seeing in Birmingham.
Players will be exposed to a professional environment that extends from training and playing games at a professional facility to receiving top-caliber coaching. Players have the opportunity to gain exposure with various collegiate and professional scouts and coaches present.
Additionally, players will receive Capelli gear, which includes a jacket, top, shorts, socks and backpack.
