Mason Judge was signed as a 16-year-old to play for Eintracht Frankfurt of the German Bundesliga. The Tampa native and former member of the Clearwater Chargers club program originally signed with Frankfurt's U-17 team. In January he will be making an appearance in front of the home crowd.
Judge and Entracht Frankfurt will be a part of the 2019 Florida Cup held on Jan. 6-13 at Al Lang Stadium. The German club will be one of four foreign clubs to take part in the tournament. The other three clubs are Ajax from the Netherlands and Brazilian clubs Sao Paulo and Flamengo.
Judge is also a member of the U-17 men's national team. He was able to move to Europe before his 18th birthday because a parent has a British passport.
