Inter Miami CF Academy Announces 2020-21 Season Roster

Club preparing to launch second year of youth development program with 20+ new local players; 

Teams expected to start preseason in August 2020 under new structure

MIAMI, Fla (July 3, 2020) - The Inter Miami CF Academy today announced its new additions and complete roster of over 110 youth players ahead of the 2020-2021 season. A total of 24 new players across the U-12 to U-17 age groups have joined the Academy, giving them a pathway to the top levels of the sport in South Florida, as well as access to professional coaching and facilities at no cost. 

“We had a very successful first year with top performances across all age groups,” said Inter Miami CF COO & Sporting Director Paul McDonough “Our players showed teams around the country the level of talent that exists in South Florida and that is a testament to the work local youth teams have done to build a solid foundation for players to build from.”

New Additions to Inter Miami CF Academy are as follows: 

  • U-12’s: Lino Alvarez Jr, Tristan Bez, Gabriel Florentino, Jayden Gachette, Noah Izaguirre, Danny Lopez, Luis Moringlane, Leandro Padilla, Lucas Penche, Brian Ramos, Bruno Ripalda, Panagiotis Daniel Veves, Daniel Vidaurre

  • U-13’s: Eduardo Degering, Eliel Estrada, Cai-Anthony McLean, Marco Simion, Alex Urkidi

  • U-14’s: Tyler Austin, Raul Leyva

  • U-15’s: Ari Dejman, David Dickstein, Fabian Pastenes

  • U-17’s: Luciano Natoli 

Next season will be the Academy’s first in the new MLS player development platform following the dissolution of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy (USSDA). A total of 65 former USSDA clubs will join the league’s existing club academies, including Inter Miami CF Academy, to create the new development platform. Inter Miami is one of 11 teams based in the state of Florida joining the new MLS platform, alongside three local youth soccer clubs.

This week, MLS also announced the opening of the application process for a limited number of clubs to apply for an opportunity to compete in the newly created elite youth development platform’s inaugural 2020-21 season to maintain a competition platform that provides geographic balance. 

In the Academy’s first year in existence, the Club brought home its first two titles; the U-12 team won the Disney Boys Soccer Showcase in November 2019 and the Armada Invitational in January 2020. Inter Miami CF Academy teams also participated in top-level tournaments, including the USSDA Winter Cup where the U-17 team’s results qualified them as one of the top 8 teams in the country, and the ICC Futures tournament where the U-14 team competed against top teams from around the world, including FC Barcelona and Juventus FC.

Four Inter Miami CF Academy players received youth national team call-ups last season, two with the U.S. U-17 Men’s National Team, one with the U.S. U-15 Boys’ National Team and one with Colombia’s U-15 Youth National Team. 

Inter Miami launched its Academy in September 2019. These players, who are among the most talented soccer athletes from all over South Florida, were chosen to sign with the Academy and positioned to have the best opportunities to continue advancing through the highest ranks of the sport at no cost to the players and families. 

The teams are expected to start preseason in August 2020 with the regular season starting in September. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
