FINDING THE STARS OF TOMORROW, TODAY.

Soccer's appeal is as personal as it is global. It represents your culture; it's something you are born into. From the streets of Sao Paulo to a stadium in Barcelona, the location may change but the passion stays the same. Anyone can play. All you need is a ball. Kids dream of becoming the stars they idolize. No event has ever captured that enthusiasm, until now.

The Prospects Cup will bring these players together to compete, but the event will go far beyond the pitch. It will be a place for cultural exchange, where the participants will learn about the history, cuisine, and music of each other's nations. Because regardless of how different these players' backgrounds may be, they have one thing in common: a love for the game.

A committee of soccer experts, including former players and coaches, will determine the teams. These legends have already established their own history. Now they're helping a new generation build their own. Join them as they write their story.
