College Recruiting information for the 2017 event will be coming soon
We have many new developments for the Under 17 and Under 19 divisions of the tournament to better serve both the interested colleges in recruiting and servicing the attending players and teams.
ALL MATCHES FOR U17 AND U19 WILL BE PROFESSIONALLY FILMED BY SPORTS PRODUCTION COMPANY, TOURBEAU SPORTS GROUP (www.tourbeausportsgroup.com). These matches will be available to all college coaches and archived for future usage by coaches from all over the country for download as well. An archived library will be developed for colleges to access. Matches will also be available for purchase by teams. This is a great benefit to coaches and an avenue to greatly increase the number of colleges that can recruit all the matches!
A college recruiting symposium will be available for all players to attend on Friday November 27th after the day's matches including a meet + greet session.
WE HAVE EXPANDED THE # of teams to 24 Under 19 teams and 16 Under 17 teams!

Past comments on the IBC BANK Copa Rayados Internacional:
"I am looking forward to watching the games at the Copa Rayados Internacional showcase. Having the opportunity to recruit from an International Showcase is an opportunity my staff and I can’t pass up. I look forward to watching all the teams and players." Mike Getman, UAB head men’s soccer coach, comments on the upcoming 2013 Copa Rayados Internacional.
"As a college soccer coach, it’s difficult to find quality, international recruiting events here in the USA. From the teams that are slated to compete, to the first class facilities where the tournament will be staged, the Copa Rayados promises to be an excellent tournament for all college soccer coaches looking to expand their recruiting base." states Alex Aldaz, assistant coach at SMU.
