RICHMOND, VA – The ECNL Boys will be returning to St. Louis for its 2022 National Finals following a successful inaugural ECNL Boys National Championship event in 2021. In 2022, the ECNL Boys National Finals will be held at Creve Coeur Soccer Complex.

“St. Louis is a historic soccer city and we are excited to once again present the ECNL Boys National Finals on such a great American soccer stage,” said ECNL Boys Commissioner Jason Kutney. “Last year’s Finals exceeded our expectations, with incredible matches throughout the tournament, culminating with our league’s top teams raising the first-ever ECNL National Championship trophies. With an expanded postseason this summer, we anticipate even better competition and even more talent on stage.”

For the 2021-22 season, more than 330 teams across the U13-U19 age groups will qualify for the ECNL Boys National Playoffs, which will take place in San Diego, CA.
