Rosters announced for 2023 id2 National Selection teams competing in London, Manchester

CHARLESTON, S.C. (March 6, 2023) – US Club Soccer has selected its id2 National Selection teams that will compete in England next month. The 2023 id2 National Selection International Tour officially begins March 30 with a two-day domestic camp in New Jersey before traveling to London and Manchester for an immersive experience of training, competition and culture. The tour, which concludes April 11, represents the final progression of the current id2 age group cycle targeting players born in 2009.

Eighteen boys and 18 girls were selected from id2 National Training Camps held in Florida and California over the past two months. This is the first time US Club Soccer is taking the id2 National Selection girls team overseas; in previous years, the girls participated in a domestic camp alongside the ECNL. For the id2 National Selection boys team, the tradition of foreign competition continues, and this year’s roster joins an elite community of alumni, including Christian Pulisic, Tyler Adams and Tim Weah. View the recently released “all-time Best XI” of id2 boys alumni here and id2 girls alumnae here.

Here is the 2023 id2 National Selection girls team, representing 14 clubs across seven states:

The id2 Program is an Olympic Development Program approved by the United States Olympic Committee and the U.S. Soccer Federation. There is no cost for players to participate or be scouted, and all meals, lodging and gear are provided by US Club Soccer and Nike. For the international tour, all travel costs are also covered by US Club Soccer. This approach to eliminating barriers to entry helps ensure the best players are able to participate.
