FirstPoint USA Soccer Showcase – Play Your Way To A US Sports Scholarship

As part of the partnership between FirstPoint USA and League Football Education, we are offering the opportunity for talented young footballers to secure one of the last remaining places at our forthcoming USA Soccer Showcase event, which will be held at the world-renowned facilities of St George’s Park, on Saturday 11 December. If you have aspirations of a sports scholarship in the USA, this event provides a unique chance to make the next step of that journey.

The event will consist of nearly 300 young male and female prospects, each vying to impress and attract the attention of onlooking college coaches from across the United States. Each coach who attends the event has the responsibility of recruiting players for their future soccer programmes and representing some of the best colleges and universities in the USA. FirstPoint USA is a world leader in the sports scholarship industry, and our annual USA Soccer Showcase has established itself as a must-attend event among the coaching fraternity.
