Local youth teams to compete in Disney Cup

Bermuda will be represented by three teams at the 2014 Disney Cup International presented by AS Roma in Orlando, Florida.

Flying the Island's banner are Hamilton Parish, Dandy Town and ABC Valencia who will all be looking to impress in the youth tournament.

Town have sent three teams to the tournament that will compete in the boys' under ten and under 12 and girls under 14 age groups.

ABC Valencia have entered teams in the boys under ten and under 12 age groups while Parish are competing solely in the boys under 12 category.

Last year saw Bermuda Brazilian Football School's boys' under 14 team reach the semi-final.

Town and Parish have been kept apart in the boys under 12 division for the group stage of the tournament which gets underway at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort on Monday.

Likewise, Valencia and Town have been placed in separate groups for the round robin stage in the boys under ten age group.

Town and ABC Valencia will play their opening group matches in the boys under ten bracket against Puerto Rican side Fraigcomar and Sugar Land SC United 04 of Texas.

Parish and Town will face San Agustin Del Paraiso, of Venezuela, and Sao Paulo Futebol Clube Alphaville, of Brazil, in their opening boys under 12 group matches.

Town's junior girls team will launch their campaign against Anepbh Honduras, of Honduras, in the girls under 14 bracket.

Town's girls team will look to go one better than the Bermuda Brazilian Football School's girls team that finished runner up to Puerto Rican side Fraigcomar after losing 2-1 in the girls under 12 final.

BBFS's under 14 girls team also did the Island proud by reaching the semi-finals in their division last summer.

The Disney Cup International involves teams from more than 20 countries and will be held from July 14-19.

The tournament enables participants to showcase their budding skills at world-class facilities and professionally maintained competition venues.

The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex features an on-site ESPN Product Centre that produces and shows event highlights throughout the day on video screens throughout the Complex as well as online at espnwwos.com.

Dandy Town are among a trio of local teams competing at the 2014 Disney Cup International tournament in Orlando, Florida
