ABOUT AND HISTORY

Miami Club Champions League to Launch  Elite 23 in Summer 2020

Miami Beach, FL (October 10, 2019) – The Miami Club Champions League is pleased to announce the region’s most professional, competitive and unique Under 23 league.  MCCL Elite 23 will begin play MayJune 2020.  MCCL clubs, as well as select clubs outside the MCCL (via the MCCL Elite 23 Application), will compete in the MCCL Elite 23.

MCCL Elite 23 will provide former MCCL players and current collegiate players an opportunity to find professional, meaningful training as well as superior competition during the summer months, (during their off-season) all while preparing them for a successful collegiate season in the fall.

“The MCCL continues to be the progressive league in the country by adding MCCL Elite 23 to its player development pyramid,” said Mayowa Owolabi, MCCL President.

MCCL Elite 23 becomes the apex of the MCCL Player Development Pathway.  Clubs that participate in the MCCL now extend the long-term developmental opportunities for soccer players ages eight through 23, and older.

“MCCL Elite 23 is a player retention opportunity creating a bridge between clubs and college programs.  We (the MCCL) have over 100 student-athletes playing collegiate soccer at all levels.  We are excited to expand the MCCL Player Development Pathway to players who are playing in college, and who would love to continue playing at their ‘home club’.  The MCCL produces top talent and fantastic match environments.  College programs know they have a reputable league not only to find their next top talent but now a league to help enhance their program’s players in the off-season,” said Owolabi.

The day is gone where a student-athlete comes home from college and has difficulty finding a truly competitive environment to train and play.  MCCL Elite 23 is the destination and becomes a vehicle for the CCL and college programs to build an even greater relationship than already exists.

Unique to MCCL Elite 23 will be the use of up to five over-23 players that will allow for former professional players to join and become role models for the next generation of players.

MCCL Elite 23 will culminate with Division Champions and the MCCL Elite 23 Championships at the end of June. Clubs will play up to seven division matches.  Division champions will earn playoff spots into the MCCL Elite 23 Championships.  The Championships will be hosted by MCCL clubs and will be rotated annually.

Schedules, scores and standings will be posted on the league website.
