With so many great teams and clubs participating at both levels at ECNL Arizona, these are more than a few highly-anticipated matches this weekend. 

Pateadores heads into ECNL Arizona with a full head of steam both in the Club Competition and Regional League. In the U15, U16 and U17 age groups of the Club Competition, Pateadores is in second place in the South Division of the Southwest Conference, and all are currently in Champions League qualification positions. Meanwhile, in the Regional League, Pateadores sits no lower than fourth across all ages and are in prime positions to climb up the table as the season enters its homestretch. At ECNL Arizona, teams at both levels will be playing top competition across the league and will be gearing up for the stretch run of the season. 

Another club that comes in with a high level of success in league play is LAFC So Cal. LAFC So Cal leads the North Division of the Southwest Conference in the U15 age group and is in good positions in the U16 or U17 age groups as well. In the SoCal Regional League, the club is in second place in the U17 and U18/19 age groups, and mid-table in the U16 age level. Averaging two points per game at both levels, LAFC So Cal will be a tough opponent for every matchup at ECNL Arizona. 

Out of the Northwest Conference, Crossfire Premier descends onto ECNL Arizona with strong league play from the U15 – U17 age groups. The club is at the top of the table in the U15 age group and is in second in the U16s and U17s, both of which are less than 0.5 points per game outside of first. With all three teams sitting in a Champions League position and playoffs just around the corner, ECNL Arizona presents a great opportunity for each team to face off against some of the best teams across the country and test itself before playing for a trophy come June.

While these are just a few of the clubs out of many heading to ECNL Arizona, the full slate of contests brings intrigue and top competition across the board.
