12 Mar NPL Showcase takes stage in suburban Las Vegas
The NPL boasts numerous high-performing clubs from all over the country, but outside of the NPL Finals, it’s tough to bring those teams together for a weekend of elite competition. Enter the inaugural NPL Showcase, March 7-9, in suburban Las Vegas.
Twelve different states were represented in a field made up of 35 clubs and 46 teams. The weekend’s games schedule helped form new, cross-conference rivalries and for players to face opposition from different regions of the country. The NPL Showcase represented the NPL’s first national scouting event, serving as an opportunity for U-16, U-17 and U-18 teams to get their players in front of the watchful eyes of attending collegiate coaches and scouts.
The Army National Guard, the Official Military Branch of US Club Soccer, was onsite with an engaging presence that included participating teams receiving National Guard t-shirts and water bottles.
