Our College Showcase is now a favorite destination for top-caliber teams from throughout the Eastern United States, Canada and England with plans to expand West and internationally. The East Coast and New England is a hotbed for Colleges – in 2008 we ran our first College Showcase which became an instant success with over 100 top caliber club teams and attended by 70 plus college coaches. The showcase has continues to attract college coaches from all over the USA.
In 2019 we will consolidate both boys and girls to one field complex utilizing the high quality college field complex at the University of Rhode Island in South Kingstown. This was done to utilize the best fields and to create the ultimate “showcase” experience being on actual college campuses, as well as easy accessibility to all games for college coaches.
Every team will play at least three games barring potential weather and team conflicts. We are a championship showcase so teams potentially have the chance to play 4 total games. We do our best to rank and adequately put together even brackets to ensure competitive games all around. All Showcase games are played with three referees and In order to make our college showcase one of the best you will find we have our games refereed by some of the top USSF registered referees in the country and from around the world.
Overall the College Showcase creates a fun and competitive atmosphere at one college venue encouraging a “True College Experience” and exposure from D1, D2 and D3 college coaches.
What Teams Are Saying About our College Showcase
“I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate you and your organizing team on a great job. Our team travels every month to participate in a tournament and we have never been in a tournament that is so well organized, friendly staff, great fields, and a very high competition level. This is the most competitive competition we have ever been at for a tournament. We are already planning our return along with more of our club teams for the 2018 edition. Keep up the great work.”
– Rui Sousa, Coach at Saint Laurent Soccer Club Canada
“Thanks again for another great year. My teams had a wonderful time and the facilities were tremendous as usual. We were sending photos back home to the teams that stayed local and they regretted their decisions!-
– Francesco Notaristefano, Coach at New Rochelle FC
“On behalf of the CFC Real, thank you very much! We had a great time both on and off the field, and although we did not live up to our own expectations on the field, we were all very impressed with the field locations, scheduling, timing, competition and… refereeing. All was great, so again, thank you very much. We all look forward to coming down again next year.”
– Steven Carneiro, CFC Real Owner
“ I can’t thank you enough for our conversation and will continue to commit teams to your tournament in the future. It is a top notch tournament that I would recommend to all in the Western NY area.”
– Jesse Myers, Director of Competitive Soccer at Lakefront Soccer club
“The NMDT meets our needs more so than any other tournament we could find at home in England or further afield in Europe. Excellent support from the Tournament Directors has enabled us to come back year after year since 2009. Our boys are amazed at the sheer scale and size of the Tournament and love competing against teams from ‘across the pond’. Their experiences will last a lifetime. I cannot recommend it highly enough and hope to be back once again in 2018.”
– Richard Jones, Athletic Director, Codsall High School, UK
