The 42nd edition of the annual Under 20 Toulon Tournament begins today, with ten elite youth international teams from around the world competing for the prestigious trophy.
Held since 1967, the tournament is seen as one of the premier events in global youth football, and has long been seen as a finishing school for the elite. It has featured early appearances from players that developed into some of the world’s best since its inception, including Thierry Henry, Juan Roman Riquelme and Rui Costa.
This year, for the first time, Opta will be collecting our most detailed level of performance data on every single match at the tournament. This will be available to view and analyse live in any of OptaPro’s leading suite of analysis and scouting products, or even as a raw data feed that can be integrated into your existing system. This will enable a straightforward comparison between your current senior players and the future of top-level football.
