USYS National Regional Showcase New England 2023 Tournament Preview



Over Memorial Day Weekend, EDP Soccer will host the USYS National League Regional Showcase New England at Progin Park in Lancaster, Massachusetts. Managed by EDP Soccer, the event is one of the five National League Regional Showcases during the season, and the last of three in the East Region this Spring. The event comes off the back of the Meet in the Middle Showcase at Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield, Indiana, which saw top teams in the nation from the Midwest, Great Lakes and other National League Conferences.

Over 170 teams will participate in the New England Showcase, featuring diverse cross-conference matchups from differing parts of the region. Teams from multiple National League Conferences will be competing, with the field of teams composed of over 50 clubs, seven states, and three Canadian provinces. In addition to college coaches on site, EDP Soccer has partnered with Sports Recruits for the event to enhance the recruiting experience.

 

A look at some of the event's top brackets:



The 17U Boys Platinum Bracket features recently-crowned Massachusetts State Cup Champions Juventus Academy Boston IFA U17 Boys (MA), one of the top teams in the nation. At their last EDP Showcase, they defeated Baltimore Armour MLS Next, 4-1, and narrowly lost to PDA MLS Next, 3-2. In National League P.R.O., they finished at the top of the table, going 6-0-1 with the second-best goal differential in the age group, and will head to USYS Nationals this Summer. They are joined in the bracket by two other teams from Massachusetts — New England Surf State 06 Navy (MA), who also participated in National League P.R.O., and State Cup semi-finalist Aztec Boys 2006 National (MA).
