- LaLiga North America
LaLiga North America released their newest documentary series, Soñando con LaLiga, which details the experience and progress of the best 17 players from the Allstate Sueño Alianza National Showcase while they traveled to Spain and competed against LaLiga academies and in front of LaLiga coaches and scouts. The players, primarily from underserved communities across the United States, would have been left out or overlooked by the traditional pay-to-play system of organized youth sports. The trip was the most recent initiative within LaLiga North America and Alianza de Futbol’s partnership, and continued LaLiga’s commitment to growing soccer in North America at a grassroots level and provide the Hispanic community opportunities they otherwise would not have access to via the game. The series explores the nuances of the trip and includes interviews with players, detailing their journey to discovery throughout the Allstate Sueño Alianza National Showcase and what led them to this trip, their backgrounds, and their expectations for the future.Allstate Sueño Alianza is the largest scouting program in the United States and allows Hispanic soccer players across U-14, U-17, and U-20 categories the opportunity to be observed by coaches and scouts from LaLiga, US Soccer, FMF, MLS, USL, Liga MX, and the best college programs in the country.
