Teams of U.S. players will be formed to play against like-aged academy teams on match-day, prior to the parent club’s Serie A match.  The selectees will also receive home and away Sampdoria kit and will be able to watch UC Sampdoria play a Serie A match in person.  The Sampdoria-Emerald City camp was a great success and both clubs look forward to hosting the camp again next year.
