US Club Soccer has announced the creation of the NPL National Showcase, an interleague event featuring top NPL teams from across the country.
Planned for March 7-9, 2014, at Heritage Park in suburban Las Vegas, the inaugural NPL National Showcase will have a limited number of spots available for boys teams in the U-16, U-17 and U-18 age groups, with preferential acceptance based on final standings from the 2012-13 NPL season.
“The NPL Showcase will be an excellent opportunity for some of the most talented U-16 through U-18 boys in the country to compete and be scouted on a national stage, “ NPL General Manager Chris Baer said. “We’re thrilled about introducing this event to the NPL platform and opening a new avenue to display the high caliber of player in our leagues.”
More information about the format, participants and other details will be released in the coming weeks and months. Those interested in learning more about the NPL National Showcase should contact their US Club Soccer Membership Services Representative.
The NPL Showcase will be the organization’s second national event, building on the success of the NPL Champions Cup, which features champions from each league meeting in a true “champions league” competition each summer. The 2013 NPL Champions Cup will be held July 18-22 in Aurora, Colo.
