Sueño MLS is Major League Soccer’s premier national tryout looking for the next best young undiscovered soccer star. This program gives players the opportunity to be selected to join the elite Youth Academy System of a host Major League Soccer Club. Sueño MLS is a nationally-televised player search for Major League Soccer. Tryouts are held in three select cities every year on a first-come basis. Hundreds of teenagers passionate about soccer travel from across the country to attend the free tryouts. Professional coaches from MLS teams are responsible for selecting the most talented players. 5 field players and 1 goalkeeper will be selected per participating city to compete for the National Sueno MLS title. 18 finalists train together for a few days to face in a final match against one of the MLS Academy Teams.
In 2011, 400 tryout spots were made available on the first day, and then the list of players was narrowed down to 30 for the second day of tryouts. Five outfield players and 1 goalkeeper were selected from each city, namely Chicago, Dallas, and Philadelphia.
The 2011 competition also included the first-ever award for the top goalkeeper of the competition titled the "Good Hands" Award.
