COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Rapids Academy goalkeeper Zackory Campagnolo has been called up to the U.S. U-17 Men’s Youth National Team for a domestic training camp in March, U.S. Soccer announced today. Campagnolo will join the national team from March 10-15 in West Palm Beach, Florida, for the team’s first training camp of 2024. 

“We are thrilled to see Zack recognized with his selection to the upcoming national team training camp. This is a great opportunity for Zack to build on his previous experiences with the national team at the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup. It has been a great start to the 2024 season for Zack with his inclusion in Rapids 2 preseason. The experiences with the second team should provide a great platform for him as he prepares to compete at the highest level,” said Chris Cartlidge, Rapids Academy Technical Director. 

Campagnolo, 16, joined the Rapids Academy in August 2023 after spending three seasons with the Orlando City SC Academy. Campagnolo started his time with Orlando City’s U-15 side in 2020 before joining the U-17s at the beginning of the 2022-23 MLS NEXT season. During his time with Orlando, the goalkeeper had the opportunity to train with Sporting Portugal in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2022 and Germany’s FC Schalke 04 in Gelsenjkkirchen, Germany, in 2023. 

As a part of the Rapids Academy, Campagnolo has seen time with both the U-17 team and the club’s MLS NEXT Pro side Rapids 2. In the current 2023-24 MLS NEXT season, Campagnolo has recorded two clean sheets in five matches and has contributed to three wins and a draw in his time on the field. 

Campagnolo has previously competed with the U.S. U-15, U-16 and U-17 Men’s Youth National Teams. The goalkeeper made his first official national team debut with the U-15s in 2022 at the Torneo Delle Nazioni in Italy, playing in three matches against Slovenia, Italy and Portugal. He earned himself the Man of the Match honor for his performance against Italy during the tournament. 

Campagnolo made the jump to the U-16 side in November 2022, earning a call up for the Football Federations Cup in Spain where he made two appearances for the team in their matches against Spain and England. In September 2023, Campagnolo joined the U-17s for the first time in his national team career for the Vaclav Jezek Tournament in the Czech Republic as the team prepared for the upcoming World Cup. Most recently, Campagnolo was named to the U.S. roster for the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup where the team made a run all the way to the Round of 16 before falling short to Germany in a 3-2 loss.
