World Team Selected From IFAF Countries To Face USA Football’s Junior National Team In South Florida
Sweden junior national team head coach Jan Jenmert is to lead a 45-player roster of the best American football players from around the world against USA Football’s junior national team in South Florida.
USA Football, the sport’s national governing body on youth and amateur levels in the United States, will hold the first “Team USA vs. The World” game in Ft. Lauderdale’s Lockhart Stadium on Saturday, January 30, 2010.
The game will match USA Football’s 2010 Junior National Team – 45 of the country’s top high school seniors – against a “World” team composed of the best players aged 19 and under from outside the United States, spanning five continents. Both teams will have practice opportunities in Ft. Lauderdale during the week of the game.
The Jan. 30 contest will kick off at 1 p.m. ET, immediately following AFC and NFC All-Star practices at Lockhart Stadium, which will be open to the public. Fans will not be charged admission to attend the multi-national showdown, which will be played under NCAA rules with 12-minute quarters.
