Euro Youth Football Association (F.A. Euro) is an soccer team based in Brooklyn, New York that plays in the Premier Development League (PDL). The club is a soccer organization aimed at the elite development of players, offering them the opportunity to play at the highest level, either domestically or internationally.
Since the club's birth in 2013, F.A. Euro has grown from a small organization consisting of three staff members and only one team into a household name in US Youth Soccer. The club is now proud to support a full Intramural Program, fifteen youth teams in the CJSL, EDP, and Super Y-League, a USL Super 20 team, and a USL PDL First Team, and over 25 members of staff. The ultimate goal for the organization is to develop a European-style soccer academy that will bridge the gap between European and American youth soccer programs; where the club aims to develop players that can play at all levels of professional soccer, including MLS, USL and in Europe.
For the past decade, Joe Balsamo has been summer soccer camps and tours throughout the country. Originally known as F.A. Eurocamp, the goal of the program was to bring top European coaches to the United States to train American players and to expose them to the European soccer model. After expanding the program to include camps in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Florida, Balsamo added a new service, tours. On these tours, F.A. Eurocamp escorted American teams through Europe and South America as they played exhibition matches against youth teams at the world’s top clubs. F.A. Euro New York was announced as a semi-professional men's team when the PDL released its 2013 schedule.
F.A. Euro New York's PDL Team play at Belson Stadium in Queens, New York. The venue can seat approximately fans.
