Showcase Showdown...BCSPL clubs participate in 4th annual University event

Clubs from outside BC are also participating in this weekend's event in Kamloops. 

The EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League will be returning to Kamloops for the 2019 BCSPL University Showcase over the May 24-26 weekend, hosted by Thompson Okanagan FC and presented by Canada's College ID Camp.

This will be the fourth year that the BCSPL has put an emphasis on bringing its players together in a central location for the ease of scouting by university coaches from across Canada and the western United States. Schools attending are wracking up the airmiles to scout the talent on display, with schools from the furthest reaches of eastern Canada coming to Kamloops, including Saint Mary's University from Halifax, along with Acadia University and St. Francis Xavier University, also from Nova Scotia.

For 2019, thirty BCSPL teams will be joined by five Alberta girls teams and two Nova Scotia provincial boys teams that will highlight the games that will involve U16 (2003) and U17 (2002) boys and girls teams over 3 days of play.

In total, twenty eight university soccer programs have committed to attend, and the link below has all of those schools listed.
