CHICAGO (December 4, 2014) — The journey began for the young Chicago Fire Juniors City players last summer, when hundreds of hopefuls took part in a three-day Identification Camp for talented players from the nine clubs in the Fire Juniors network. The players that shined in the camp were selected to form four ‘Fire Juniors Elite SC’ teams. The teams were invited to attend the prestigious Disney Junior Showcase in ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida from November 26-30, 2014.
The teams arrived in Florida on Nov. 26 and travelled to the National Training Center (NTC) in Clermont to train. The Fire Juniors Elite SC teams played friendlies against Florida Rush before taking to the practice field on Nov. 27 to develop team formations and set pieces prior to the showcase. The showcase kicked off on Friday, Nov. 28 with two days of group games, and semi-final and final games taking place on Sunday, Nov. 30. As a whole, the teams went 7-4-2, with 23 goals for and 18 goals against throughout the Showcase.
