The CCL UNITED (formerly CCL SELECT) program was launched in 2016 to provide the very best CCL players with a top-level international soccer immersion experience at the Gothia Youth World Cup. After a successful showing in 2016, the CCL has received acceptance into the 2001 and 2000 Elite divisions (boys and girls), and we are awaiting news of a potential acceptance into the Tipselit Trophy division, the highest level of play for players in the 2000 birth year. We look forward to traveling with our 2000 and 2001 CCL United Teams to this year's Gothia Cup!
To put this opportunity into perspective, there has never been a US-based girls team advance past the Quarterfinal stage of the Tipselit division--until 2016. The CCL girls team advanced to a fantastic semi-final, losing to eventual Champion Eskiltuna United. The CCL girls team gained the attention of the Gothia Cup press corps following a decisive 4-1 victory over Umea IK, as featured in this article:
The CCL boys team also turned in solid technical performances, advancing to the semi-finals of the second bracket against robust competition from Swedish and Norweigian competition. All of the players would tell you that from the friendly matches to Gothia Cup competition, they experienced some of the best soccer they had ever seen.
Far more than an international soccer tour, the CCL United experience provides players with an immersive, youth professional environment. Only the world's top youth academy program participate in the older age divisions. This experience allows the very best CCL players to further hone their soccer skills and tactical savvy by competiting head-to-head with the best programs in the world.
We need your help to build upon last year's successes for the 2017 CCL United teams! The per-player cost of the trip is approximately $3000. And although that fee includes airfare, tournament registration, housing, and most meals, it still represents a significant financial sacrifice for players and families.

By supporting the team through the CCL RallyMe platform, you can be sure that your contributions will be processed securely and safely, and that the players will benefit from the maximum amount of your contribution.
