[USL] United Soccer Leagues has entered into a three-year agreement with IMG Academies for the Bradenton, Fla.-based sports campus to host the Super Y-League and Super-20 League North American Finals.

The multi-sport IMG Academies has been the home of the U.S. Under-17 Residency Program since its launch in 1999 and attracts many MLS clubs for winter training each year.

The 2012 Super-20 League North American Finals will take place July 19-22 and feature 24 men's and women's teams.

The 2012 Super Y- League North American Finals are set for Dec. 7-11. This year, more than 130 U-12 to U-17 boys and girls teams will qualify from their respective regions and compete for national titles in the Super Y event.

The SYL North American Finals, in their 14th year, have been held in and around Tampa, home to the USL.

“As two of the premier competitions on the youth soccer calendar each and every year, the Super Y- League and Super-20 League North American Finals will take another major step forward by offering their teams the world-class playing fields and facilities at IMG Academies,” USL CEO Alec Papadakis said. “By partnering with such an experienced and internationally respected sports organization, USL will be able to provide a comprehensive event experience for players, coaches, referees, college scouts, and fans on par with the best in the country. The relocation of these two showcase events to IMG is just one of the numerous youth development and competition initiatives USL will be launching in the months ahead to redefine the pathway for total elite players and coaches.”
