Academy Patterson Cup

U-12s off to Kansas City to compete at the inaugural Patterson Cup

The Toronto FC U-12 team (2007) team is off to Kansas City this weekend to take part in the inaugural Patterson Cup.             

The Patterson Cup is named after Sporting KC co-owner Neal Patterson and his wife Jeanne, both of whom lost their lives to cancer in 2017.

The tournament features six MLS academy teams, who will compete for the honour of being crowned the inaugural champions.  

Our U-12s will open up the tournament on Saturday when they take on the reigning U-12 Generation adidas Cup Champion Colorado Rapids at 2. They will then take on the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

The top two teams from the group will advance to the semi-finals on Sunday. The other group features the hosts Sporting KC, Atlanta United and Real Salt Lake.
