Dallas, TX – Liverpool FC International Academy America is pleased to announce that Liverpool FC International Academy Texas has been invited to join the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) Boys League.  This extraordinary elite opportunity offers players ages U-14 through U-19 the ability to train and compete at the highest levels of competition throughout the region and the United States.

Liverpool FC International Academy Texas was founded in 2006 as the official youth partner of Liverpool FC International Academy, UK.  Through determination, motivation, perseverance and an outstanding player development program, all inspired by the curriculum and methodology of the Liverpool Academy, LFC IA Texas is honored to be one of the inaugural clubs asked to participate in this outstanding club platform from US Club Soccer.

LFC IA Texas Owner and CEO Peter Brody stated, “We are honored to be a part of this inaugural year of ECNL Boys.  We feel that US Club has demonstrated outstanding success making ECNL Girls one of the top programs in the world.  We expect the same on the boys side from this exceptional organization and look forward to dedicating our club, staff and families to supporting and helping build this exciting next chapter for our club.  We feel that with our focus on placing athletes in college, it aligns so well with the ECNL platform that we are excited to marry the two together.” 

Liverpool FC International Academy Texas prides itself on developing its players through a total and complete positive soccer experience from the very early ages through graduation. The Liverpool “player pathway” which describes the way we train our players is one of the unique components of LFC IA Texas and is a real source of pride for our club. 

Dan White, the Head of the International Academy in Liverpool, England stated, “Entry into the ECNL Boys is a great step forward for us. It provides a platform for our players to compete against other top youth teams and a fantastic learning environment which will support their all-round development. This also helps with our player pathway so the youngsters starting out at our club can aspire to be part of the competition in the future. We’re all really looking forward to making a positive contribution to the league from this point forward.”

From US Club, “ECNL was founded to improve the daily environment for boys youth soccer players through a holistic and collaborative club-based development program, the Boys ECNL will feature regular season conference competition and regular season cross-conference events for its member clubs. Qualifying teams, based on regular season performance, will advance to the post-season championship of the ENPL, along with qualifiers from various National Premier Leagues across the country.”

Liverpool FC IA Texas Academy Director, Tom Blencoe added, “We will offer this elite level of competition to boys across the entire North Texas market.”
