Fox Sports en Español announced that El Sueño de Tu Vida presented by Sears, the only national tour to scout top Hispanic soccer talent for pro clubs & colleges, will be returning for its second year starting this month. The national amateur scouting program is the result of Fox Sports en Español’s partnership with Alianza de Fútbol Hispano and Sears, through which America’s most talented amateur Hispanic players are given the opportunity to showcase their skills and earn college scholarships as well as professional contracts in Mexico and the US. El Sueño de Tu Vida is the biggest grassroots program launched by a network across the nation’s key markets, and creates national media attention for sponsors at a local level.
In 2009, the team of scouts will be comprised of some of Mexico’s most accomplished and influential talent evaluators, including Jose Enrique Vaca (America), Jose Luis Ortega (Santos Laguna), Daniel Ahmed (Atlas), and Jose Manuel Abundis (Toluca). As part of the scouting process in each city, 18 players will be chosen to compete on the El Sueño de Tu Vida Local All-Star Team, which will play a game against a visiting Mexican Primera Division A or MLS reserve team during the third weekend of the events. Four players from each city’s All Star team will be further selected to a national player pool of 40 finalists, where only 18 players from the player pool will make the National All-Star Team, which will play against America “Primera A” in Los Angeles in a nationally televised game by Fox Sports en Español on October 24th.
