Montverde Academy is proud to host our eighth annual Florida Cup Montverde Academy Soccer Tournament, FC MAST. This tournament was established as a platform for elite high school aged student-athletes to compete and showcase their abilities to more than 80 college and professional
Each year the level of competition and amount of national exposure increase, and we hope this trend continues as the tournament matures and evolves. We are pleased to continue our partnership with Florida Cup, the largest annual celebration of international soccer in Florida. This affiliation assures a high-profile competition for the top regional U17 and U19 boys’ teams.
"Over the years, MAST has been successful because of the passion for growth and competition that our athletes have for the game," said Mike Potempa, Head Coach and Director of the Soccer Institute at Montverde Academy (SIMA) program. "We consistently face tough competitors in this tournament, which we use as a training tool for our student-athletes to push their abilities to achieve the highest level of capabilities that they can individually and as a team. We look forward to an exciting tournament featuring outstanding soccer matches and talent."
There are 12 teams participating in two age groups, with four teams being from our SIMA program. The matches begin on MVA fields on Wednesday, January 16 at 5:30 p.m. We invite you to come out and cheer on the student-athletes!
