RUSH GLOBAL: Select to Face Juventus and Roma over Easter
75 boys born 02-03 from Rush will compete this April in Italy in one of the most prestiges youth tournaments the Italians offer.
Rush will face Serie A clubs including Juventus, Fiorentina, Roma, Inter, Atalanta, Lazio, AC Milan and Genoa to name a few. Rush Select has drawn both Juve and Roma in the qualifying brackets. Rush was offered the exclusive North American spots to the prestigious tournament after a 5th place finish in last years editions that saw the Americans beat Serie A power Fiorentina.
“This is truly a fantastic opportunity for our Rush boys to measure themselves against the future stars of the Serie A. Seeing our boys compete at this level is truly rewarding,” commented tour organizer John Salvatore, CT Rush Executive Director & Rush International Business Advisor.
The tour has 75 boys and an additional 65 parents and supporters that will be there to enjoy the competitions and the fruits of the Italian culture. This is more than just playing the best soccer teams of Italy. We have balanced the tour to be about soccer, culture and being an ambassador of Rush and the United States.
