Maps and directions to all Showcase fields are located on our Showcase web site at www.forceadidaspremier.com under the Fields Tab. Please utilize this resource.
With top-rated teams participating, our Showcase committee is committed to securing the most experienced and reputable referees available. We know that hiring the very finest from around the region will be critical to creating an unbiased and safe environment, and will guarantee the integrity of the game for all of our participants.
There are numerous sponsors for this event and their generous support is notable and very much appreciated!
