ECNL Atlanta Preview: Three Boys Teams Set to Begin 2023/24 ECNL Showcase Season

By Will Pipicelli, 09/14/23, 10:15AM EDT


Three FC Stars Boys teams are headed down to Atlanta this weekend for the first of ten ECNL Showcase events the club will be attending this season. 

Our U12, U13, and U14 ECNL Boys teams are making the journey to Atlanta for their lone showcase of the season. The event will run from Friday, Sept. 15 - Sunday, Sept. 17. All games will be held at Georgia Soccer Park in East Point, Georgia. 

While no league games have been played yet, all three teams have already achieved success in the early season. Each team won the top bracket in their respective age divisions at the FC Stars Cup. Meanwhile, our U14 boys were also crowned champions at the Bayside FC Pre-Season Summer Classic the week prior. 

ECNL Atlanta will mark the first-ever showcase event for players on our U12 & U13 ECNL Boys teams. Our U14 Boys participated at ECNL South Carolina (Spring) last May

A full schedule of ECNL Atlanta can be found here, while the full FC Stars Schedule can be found below. Please note that our U12 Boys will be playing two games on Saturday as a result of having no games on Friday.

Our FC Stars Boys & Girls teams will be a frequent guest at ECNL Showcases throughout the 2023/24 season. With seven boys and girls teams combined in the ECNL & ECNL Regional League platforms, our players have the opportunity to compete against talented opposition from around the country in front of hundreds of college coaches. It is not uncommon to see over 400 college coaches at certain ECNL Showcase events. 

The ECNL & ECNL Regional League postseason tournaments provide further chances for our players to demonstrate their development and abilities. 

ECNL Atlanta is one of five showcases our boys teams will participate in this season. The first weekend in December will see our three oldest ECNL Boys teams return to the Palmetto State at ECNL South Carolina. Our ECNL Regional League Boys teams have their lone showcase of the season in February at ECNL RL Florida, where they’ll be joined by more of our teams at the nearby ECNL Florida kicking off a day later. Finally, Memorial Day Weekend sees three of our ECNL teams travel to Richmond for ECNL Virginia. 

Three trips to Florida highlight the girls ECNL Showcase slate for the 2023/24 season. Beginning in January, ECNL RL Florida (Winter) hosts our U17 & U19 ECNL RL Blue, White, and Sky Blue sides. ECNL Florida starts the next day and will host our U16-U19 ECNL Blue & White teams. Our U16 ECNL Regional Sky Blue side will also head down to the Sunshine State the first weekend of March. 

Later on in the Spring, our U13-U17 ECNL Blue and White sides travel across the country for ECNL Phoenix. ECNL Greensboro provides a further opportunity for our U15-U17 ECNL Blue and White players to be scouted by college coaches, which will be held during Memorial Day weekend.
