The Tango League is upping it’s game and expanding its footprint. adidas Soccer announced the expansion of their Tango League Qualifying tournaments. Five new cities across the United States in the first half of 2019 will host qualifiers. Providing a wider platform for creators everywhere to be discovered.
What Is It?
What exactly is Tango League? A worldwide effort that gathers young talent from around the globe in a rapid-fire, intense 5-a-side street tournament. Not unlike Neymar’s Five, the Tango League gives athletes with the skill, but perhaps not the platform, the opportunity to showcase their raw talent, increase their social media following, compete with other players across the globe and for a lucky few, the chance to become adidas-sponsored athletes.
Where It’s Been & Where It’s Going
Previously only held in New York City and Los Angeles in the U.S., adidas has confirmed five new Qualifying tournament locations set for this winter and early spring. The goal is to provide more athletes in more markets the chance to win ultimate Tango League bragging rights. The new cities include:
• Dallas, TX @ FORO Sports Club – January 19th
• Houston, TX @ Sports Creek – January 26th
• Seattle, WA (location to come) – February 2nd
• San Diego, CA @ Aviara Community Park – February 9th
• Philadelphia, PA (location to come) – February 16th
What’s at Stake
In each qualifying city, one competing team will win the right to travel to the National Final on March 9, 2019 at the Tango League Championships in Los Angeles where players will battle it out for fame, glory, and the chance to compete on a global stage. From there, the winners of the Los Angeles Championships will travel on to Brazil to compete and create their fame this summer at the 2019 Copa America Finals – yeah, you read that right – COPA AMERICA FINALS.
