The competition kicked off back in August 2013 with qualifying regional tournaments (East, Central and West) featuring Under-17 teams from all 19 MLS clubs. The top three teams in each region advanced to the "International Tier" of the Generation adidas Under-17 Cup finals.

The "International Tier" participants are grouped as follows:

Group A: New York Red Bulls, Colorado Rapids, Seattle Sounders, Flamengo (Brazil)
Group B: Real Salt Lake, Toronto FC, LA Galaxy, Stoke City (England)
Group C: San Jose Earthquakes, FC Dallas, Philadelphia Union, Chivas Guadalajara (Mexico)

The other MLS Under-17 teams that didn't qualify for the "International Tier," will do battle in the "National Tier" in Frisco: Chicago Fire, Chivas USA, Columbus Crew, D.C. United, Houston Dynamo, Sporting Kansas City, Montreal Impact and Portland Timbers.

New England Revolution and Vancouver Whitecaps FC elected not to participate in the finals, according to the league release.

Adidas is a joint venture between Major League Soccer and U.S. Soccer aimed at raising the level of young soccer talent in the United States. The program, sponsored by Adidas, encourages early entry (without college graduation) of American players into MLS. Until 2005, the program was sponsored by Nike and was called Project-40.

Generation Adidas players do not count against the MLS senior roster and usually earn a much higher salary than the league minimum. Entering into the program automatically classifies a player as professional, and thus disqualifies them from playing college soccer. As a result, Generation Adidas players are also guaranteed scholarships to continue their college education should their professional career not pan out.

Players under the Home Grown Player rule http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_Grown_Player are signed to Generation Adidas contracts.

Generation adidas Cup 2014:
Stoke City wins title with shootout win over Real Salt Lake after 1-1 tie

Image

FRISCO, Texas — It proved impossible to separate MLS power Real Salt Lake and international guest Stoke City in the 2014 Generation adidas Cup, but Stoke City is flying home with the trophy after winning a dramatic shootout Sunday afternoon at Toyota Stadium.

The teams tied 1-1 in regulation, their second tie of the tournament after a frantic 2-2 draw In group play on Tuesday. In that contest, Salt Lake had edged Stoke in a shootout and eventually won the group, but Stoke qualified for the semifinals as the best group runner-up and got revenge on Real Salt Lake in Sunday's 3-2 shootout win. It was the fifth time out of seven editions that the tournament final has been decided by penalty kicks. Real Salt Lake won the 2008 title and lost the 2010 edition, both in shootouts.
