This past weekend, EDP Soccer hosted its Spring Playoff and Festival for the EDP Soccer Florida Competitive Leagues. Thirty-three teams traveled to Heroes Community Park in Orlando, where Nona Soccer Academy hosted a fantastic weekend.
The playoffs featured the top three teams from the Spring 2021 season in the Central Florida Region and South Florida Region in the 11U, 12U, 13U and 14U Boys divisions. EDP Soccer also invited ten 9U and 10U boys teams from the top clubs in the state to participate in a festival alongside the playoffs.
“This past weekend was a great way to finish off the inaugural seasonal year of the EDP Florida Competitive League. Fabio, Cris, and everyone at Nona Soccer Academy were terrific hosts at an excellent venue, and an ideal location to bring together top teams from around the state. As the league expands in North Florida and West Florida, EDP Soccer looks forward to working with more great clubs.” — Simon Collins, EDP Technical Director
