Dubai, UAE – July 15, 2019:  du LaLiga High Performance Center (HPC) announced today that its U14 teams have won the IberCup, the top international youth football tournament, which took place this year in Spain between July 9-13. 

The IberCup brought together the world's strongest academies from across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa, providing youth the opportunity to face-off in a highly competitive 11-aside tournament. 

This year witnessed the participation of top teams from Brazil, Spain, France, Portugal, Sweden, United States, Canada, Ukraine, Egypt, Morocco and Hungary, with du LaLiga HPC proving their might and bringing home the gold trophy to the UAE.
