The inaugural Heart of Midlothian Football Club Invitational is now underway at Oriam.
Comprising of Pro Academy boys teams from Scotland, England, Belarus and the US, the tournament will consist of a four-league group stage followed by semi finals and a final.
Participating clubs include English Premiership giants Arsenal and Liverpool, as well as Olympic Development Programme Squads from the US.
Taking place on Tuesday April 9th and Wednesday April 10th at the world class Oriam Performance Centre, the 2005 age group teams will play a minimum of four 60-minute games each, enabling the young Jambos to test their skills against some of the brightest talents from around the globe.
Fans are invited to come along to catch a glimpse of some of the game's rising stars over the course of the two days.
The Heart of Midlothian Invitational follows on from the launch of the club’s Global Youth Partner Programme. US based Forza Futbol Club became the first partner club and will benefit from the coaching and backroom skills at Hearts, with both clubs working towards a player development pathway.
