The Borussia U15s have been in the United States since Saturday evening. The team will spend the first few days of their trip in California, where they will play a friendly against Albion SC on Tuesday (18:30 local time). Then, on Thursday, it’s off to the renowned Mayor’s Cup in Las Vegas.
For several years now, the Foals have been travelling to the USA prior to the start of the Rückrunde, something that’s developed into a nice tradition for the club. The U15s embarked on the long flight to San Diego on the weekend, where they landed at approximately 21:00 local time. On Sunday, the team (who are staying with host families in California) took part in a nearly two-hour-long bike tour in Mission Beach. Today, the team are in Los Angeles for a sightseeing tour. Following their return from L.A. on Tuesday afternoon, the Foals will take part in their first match of the trip. At 18:30 local time, head coach Sven Schuchadt’s side will play a friendly against Albion SC.
The next day, the Foals will visit SeaWorld San Diego before setting off for Las Vegas on Thursday. On the weekend, Nevada will play host to the renowned Mayor’s Cup, which will feature teams from five different continents. Borussia are taking part in the tournament for the twelfth time and will begin by facing Players North Soccer Club from Nevada on Saturday (10:00 local time). Their next group stage match will be against Utah’s Forza FC (15:20 local time), before the Foals play their final group stage game against the Madison 56ers from Wisconsin (Sunday, 10:00 local time). The consolation and final round games will kick off at 15:20 local time on Sunday, with both semi-finals and the final slated to take place on Monday.
