ODP Thanksgiving Interregional All-Stars travel to compete in Argentina


FRISCO, Texas (March 24, 2016) – Two US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) All-Star teams will travel to Argentina to compete against local clubs from March 25 – April 03. The All-Star teams were selected from the 2015 US Youth Soccer ODP Thanksgiving Interregional in the 2001 and 2002 Boys age groups.

After a couple of days of training, both squads will play their first match on March 29th against youth teams from Racing Club de Avellaneda. The ODP teams will also play friendlies against youth teams from San Lorenzo de Almagro, Club Athletico Los Andes and Newell’s Old Boys, where Diego Maradona once played.

Updates will be added to this page as frequently as possible including recaps and photos. You can also receive updates on Twitter @USYSODP.

US Youth Soccer ODP is the original Olympic development program. It is the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League, as well as a majority of current and past national and youth national team members, as alumni. With programs in all 55 State Associations, as well as regional, national and international tournaments, US Youth Soccer ODP continues to offer development and exposure opportunities to any player, regardless of hometown or club affiliation.
