With Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni and President Claudio Tapia in attendance, AFA will officially present on August 15 their football complex in Miami.
The plan, which began in 2022 in the town of Hialeah, includes a High-Performance Sports Complex that will serve the National Team for the 2024 Copa America and the 2026 World Cup, should Argentina qualifies.
Furthermore, it will be a base for the young talents to develop and for the players who participate in the leagues of nearby countries such as Mexico or some of Central America. In addition, AFA will create football academies for the large number of Argentine citizens who live throughout the state of Florida.
AFA President Claudio Tapia stated the following through their official website:
“We are very happy and excited about AFA’s project in the United States. We know the importance of this market due to its economic potential and the proximity of the Copa América and the next World Cup in this country. At the beginning of our management, we
focused strongly on expanding our brand in strategic markets such as Asia and the Middle East, where we knew there were thousands of fans from Argentina and many companies interested in working with us.
“The last tour showed what our national team means there. We have many sponsorship agreements and an important brand positioning. Since last year we started working on a similar project in the United States, where we will also have high-performance centers and
institutional offices, which will mark AFA’s permanent presence in this country.”
