Minnesota United have announced plans to host an MLS NEXT Pro Tryout Combine focused on recruiting talent for both the MNUFC Academy and MNUFC2. Players ages 16+ are invited to register if they are looking to take their game to the next level.
The combine is scheduled to take place from January 4 - 6. Participants will be evaluated through a mixture of small-sided drills and full-sided scrimmages. All sessions will take place at the National Sports Center Dome in Blaine.
The deadline to apply is December 24 at midnight. There will be a $205 registration fee to be paid in full at the time of sign-up.
Because spots are limited, inclusion in the combine will be based on the coach’s review of the playing résumé provided by each player. Any registrants who are not selected will have their registration fee refunded.
In addition to the registration fee, players will be responsible for paying for their own airfare, lodging, transportation to the event, food, and other incurred travel costs. Players will be expected to come prepared for the tryout with their own shoes, socks, shorts, gloves, shins pads or other equipment related to their position.
Spots are going to fill up fast; interested players should register quickly if they want a chance to participate.
