The world-renowned youth tournament held in Costa Brava, Spain is a unique opportunity for teams to compete with the world’s best clubs.

Costa Brava rests on the northern edge of Spain, 60 kilometers (roughly 37 miles) from Barcelona. Each year, among the quaint stretch of beaches and stunning ocean, the region hosts one of the world's most prestigious youth soccer events: the Mediterranean International Cup known as MICFootball.

Some of soccer’s biggest youth teams compete in this incredible event: Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, and more.

This tournament is rich with talent. Some of the game's greatest players competed at the MICFootball before starting their legendary careers.

Messi. Neymar, Jr. Ansu Fati. Marcus Rashford. Casemiro.

These are players known around the world for their breathtaking skill and dominance. Each showed their skill in the MIC Tournament before becoming superstars on Barcelona, Real Madrid, or PSG. 

For Elite Academy coaches and players, this tournament is one of the most important showcases they’ve had in their careers to date.
