AFA reaches an agreement to develop a high-performance center in Miami, Florida


The Argentine Football Association has reached an agreement with the mayor of the city of North Bay Village in Miami to have a first-class high-performance center there in the future. According to a statement via the AFA’s official website, this project is part of a “global expansion quest” led by AFA’s president Claudio Tapia.

This advanced high-performance center would feature training fields, a youth football program, multipurpose spaces, and a football museum.

Here is what AFA president Tapia had to say about this huge project:

“For Argentine football, it is vital to carry out this development since it positions our football outside the country’s borders, and even more so, if we consider that Miami will be one of the venues for the next 2026 World Cup in FIFA. Young people from there will be able to participate and train in our facilities. It will be a model project for the world.”


  1. There is a decent size Argentine community in South Florida too. I remember visiting an Argentine store in North Miami Beach years ago where a friend bought me the goal of the century T-shirt that had a simple graphic of the trail of Maradona’s goal.

  2. Definitely Messi’s professional and personal connections to Miami has something to do with this… I am sure Messi will one day become the coach of the senior team and it may not be a bad idea to establish a talent pool with world-class facilities in his future second- home

  3. Good project I hope it is a successful one.

    Btw Gab Jesus agreed fees with Arsenal. So one City attacker is out. Next is Raheem Sterling to Chelsea. Thoee 2 will be replaced by Haaland and J Alvarez.

    Arsenal seem to have a lot of money for shopping. They already spent £45 mil for Gabriel and £35 mil for Fab Vieira. Now they might be willing to spend £65 mil for Raphinha and £45 mil for Lisandro Martinez? That’s like £200 million. Amazing number for a team that won’t even play in CL next season.
