Sunday at Public Schools Stadium, aspiring young soccer stars hit the pitch for the Minnesota United FC Academy ID Camp, in partnership with Duluth FC.

The camp is used as part of an ongoing journey to discover and develop top young talent throughout the state.

“We have highly skilled players all around the state of Minnesota and even the local region and part of these camps. The idea is to go out and find those players and I think it’s really important that people recognize that the title of the team is Minnesota United, and we’re not just looking for players from the Twin Cities. So as we get out into some of the more rural areas, we know that there are talented soccer players out there and we want to come out and find them,” said MNUFC Development coach Justin Ferguson.

The goal of today for the MNUFC Academy was to continue their growth and competitiveness in the league, along with their relationship in the local community.

Seeking highly-motivated, talented players to fill spots on their U15, U17, and U19 squads.

“Sometimes that means that we can come to these ID camps and identify one today, or maybe one tomorrow, or maybe one next week that we can then put on our platform within the academy and hopefully build or help them build their own dream to be a Minnesota United first team player,” concluded Ferguson.
