THE TOURNAMENT

The world's best youth football competition returns. The leading academies from around the globe face off between June 8th and June 10th in the US state of New Jersey, to see who will be crowned the best Under-12s side in the world.

The top Under-12s teams from LaLiga Santander clubs, will measure up against European powerhouses, such as Liverpool FC, SL Benfica and Inter Milan. The tournament will also be graced by other international sides, such as the New York Red Bulls, Ironbound SC and Club America.

The fourth edition of the LaLiga Promises International Tournament will take place at the same venue as last year in New York. The inaugural tournament was held in Barranquilla, Colombia in 2015 and Miami, USA in 2016.

In partnership with the Jose Ramon de la Morena Foundation, LaLiga continue to demonstrate unwavering support for youth football, respect for sporting values and the nurturing of young talent. Current stars, such as Gerard Pique, Fernando Torres and Andres Iniesta, took the first steps in their careers through the LaLiga youth tournament structure.
