Richmond Strikers launch East Coast Showcase, partnering with ECNL Boys
The Richmond Strikers have added a new event to their tournament series, partnering with ECNL Boys in launching the East Coast Showcase.
Just a few weeks after the completion of the 2021 Jefferson Cup, the Richmond Strikers Tournaments brand will host another high-level showcase over Memorial Day weekend from May 29-31. Teams across the U15-U19 age groups (2006-2002 birth year) will convene in the capital of Virginia to play in the tournament which will be held in tandem with the ECNL Boys Memorial Day Event.
As elite level youth teams from throughout the U.S. compete in one place, the East Coast Showcase and ECNL Boys event are expected to attract hundreds of college coaches from Division I and beyond.
Through the ECNL Boys partnership, the East Coast Showcase is expected to quickly establish itself among the ranks of the nation’s top tournaments such as the Jefferson Cup, Dallas Cup, San Diego Surf Cup, WAGS Women’s Tournament, and Disney College Showcase.
“We are excited to begin a new Memorial Day Showcase, focused on U15-U19 boys teams,” said Tournament Director Steve D’Adamo. “With our great facilities, Memorial Day Weekend seems like a great fit for us to expand our Strikers Tournament Series. The East Coast Showcase, combined with the ECNL Boys National event will be one of the top events in the country for showcasing talent and recruiting.”
Games will be played on the same fields as other prestigious events including the Jefferson Cup and the multiple-time host of the ECNL National Finals, the West Creek Complex. More natural grass fields at Striker Park will also be utilized.
