TRAVEL:

Hotel rooms for all ENPL postseason events, including the ENPL National Playoff, ENPL National Finals (specific info here) and ENPL 19-U National Finals, must be booked through Tournament Housing Services (THS), the Official Travel Partner of US Club Soccer. Teams that fail to comply with this policy are subject to disciplinary measures. 

Hotel options in the Rockford area are limited. There are few hotels in close proximity to the facility and a majority of hotels will be a 30-60 minute drive. We want to prepare teams accordingly and ensure all teams, despite qualification date, have an opportunity to book some of the closer inventory. With this in mind, we will have three (3) release dates for hotel inventory. Each release date will include inventory varying in distance to the facility. Teams are not restricted to a specific release date. We understand teams will be coming from all over the country to compete and want to present a clear picture of the hotel situation.

  • Click on this link to reserve via THS website or call (888) 536-8326 for THS to guide you through the booking process.
  • THS has reserved hotels well in advance at the lowest available rates with the most suitable amenities for your team.
