Club Career

Born in Phoenix, Arizona, Ventura Alvarado ventured south to sign with Mexico's prestigious Club America in 2008 as a youth player.

He worked his way up the ranks in the America's academy, starting with the Tercera Division team, moving to the U-17 team in 2009-10, to the Segunda Division team in 2010-11, and to the U-20 team in the 2011-12 season. With the U-20 team, he was a regular in the squad that won the 2012 U-20 Clausura championship.

In June 2012, he played every minute for Club America U-20 in the U-20 Copa Libertadores, where the team finished third.

Alvarado became in involved with the first team in the 2012-13 season and made his debut in a Copa Mexico match in July.

Bob Bradley and Le Havre won their French Ligue 2 game over the weekend to keep their promotion hopes alive.
