The 2024 edition will be the third edition of a VCF Academy World Cup; a standout tournament for the different Under-12s teams from different parts of the world, mostly linked to the different international projects that Valencia CF carries out through the VCF Academy Programs. This Internationalisation Strategy was a finalist in the World Football Summit Awards for 2023.

In 2023, more than 5,000 players and 400 coaches from over 50 countries around the world participated in the various VCF Academy Programs to learn more about the VCF Academy's playing methodology and become part of the Valencianista family
