Welcome to the 2017 adidas Blue Chip Showcase Men’s Event. The 2017 event will be held at our new 13 field Kings Hammser Soccer Complex conveniently located in Batavia, OH.
We had a record number of college coaches attend in 2016. Over 250 college coaches came last year and we expect this number to be even higher in 2017 when we move to our new 13 field facility in Batavia, OH, allowing for one central location for coaches to recruit from.
The adidas Blue Chip Showcase has been in existence for 25 years and has attracted over 500 College Coaches (between the Men's and Women's events) to view players from around the country and Canada. It is the Premier College recruiting Showcase in the Midwest and one of the top in the country.
Kings Hammer SC welcomes teams from across the country and internationally to compete in the adidas Blue Chip Showcase. In 2016, over the two weekends, the event brought in 140 clubs from 21 states and 15 clubs from Canada. Participating clubs traveled from Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, New York, Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Canada. These teams also come from many of the top youth leagues around the country, including the US Youth Soccer National League, Region I Champions League, Region II Midwest Regional League, Region III Premier League, and US Club Soccer National Premier Leagues. US Youth Soccer State Cup, Regional Cup, and National Championship teams have also been accepted to this event.
