SEATTLE— (club release) Twenty players from the ages of U11 to U17 were selected from this summer’s inaugural ECFC and UC Sampdoria ID camp. The 20 players chosen consisted of both boys and girls, and they will now go on to train with the Italian club’s youth academy in the spring of 2015. The ID camp was hosted by Sampdoria’s Seattle partner, Emerald City FC, with players participating from clubs around the region and the Puget Sound Premier League Academy. The training and evaluations took place over three days at the end of which, the coaches attending from Sampdoria’s International Youth Academy selected the players.

These players will join the players selected from the other camps held around the US this summer to train and play with players of the same age from the Sampdoria youth academy.
UC Sampdoria plays in Italy’s top league, Serie A, and is located in the northwest port city of Genoa. The selected players will join others chosen from ID camps across the United States to train with Sampdoria’s youth academy. 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.
