College Soccer’s Top Division I Seniors Invited to Participate in 2011 adidas MLS Player Combine

NEW YORK (Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010) – Major League Soccer today announced the initial list of 54 college seniors from 36 Division I schools who have been invited to participate in the 2011 adidas MLS Player Combine. The annual player combine will be held at Central Broward Regional Park in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Jan. 7-11. The Combine will separate all players into four teams and feature two games per day on Jan. 8, 10 and 11.

The initial player list was determined by a panel of Division I college coaches, representing all conferences, who nominated and voted for players in conjunction with MLS coaches. These players will be joined by Generation adidas players, additional collegiate players from NCAA Division II and III schools, NAIA schools, and Division I alternates.

The final player list, including Generation adidas participants, Combine coaches, and team assignments, will be announced in the coming weeks.
