Major League Soccer announced the inaugural 2019 Adidas MLS College Showcase on Wednesday, an NCAA sanctioned event that will feature 40 collegiate players ranging from freshmen to seniors.
Lasting three days, the showcase will give participating players exposure to MLS scouts, as technical staffs from each club are invited to attend.
The event will take place Dec. 13-15 in Raleigh, North Carolina, coinciding with the 2019 NCAA Men’s College Cup held just outside the city in Cary, North Carolina.
Players will go through training sessions, testing, interviews and match play. The event allows MLS clubs to talk with and scout potential 2020 SuperDraft selections without jeopardizing the players’ college eligibility.
Underclassmen eligible for MLS Homegrown status will not participate in the showcase.
