Uganda entered the Schwan's USA CUP with a U11 boys' team for the first time ever. While the journey was long and some players didn't receive their passports due to the state shutdown, for the Uganda Edgars Youth Programme (EYP) team that were able to make the trip, it was a time to remember.
Thousands of soccer players make their way to the USA CUP, presented by PUMA, each year, but what exactly does it take for teach team to get here? For teams coming from across the world, a multitude of decisions have to be made about how to make the trip happen. Countless hours of fundraising went into the effort for the three teams in the Cayman Islands in the U12, U13 and U14 age groups, allowing them to depart from the island and arrive at the Minnesota soccer fields.
