The inaugural USL Summer Showcase is set for Lynn Family Stadium on Wednesday, July 20, as reps from USL’s ecosystem of more than 200 professional and pre-professional clubs will gather in Louisville.
The event will be culminated by a Louisville City FC / Phoenix Rising FC match at 7 p.m.
“The Summer Showcase will shine a spotlight on everything the USL is doing to drive the game forward in America,” USL Chief Commercial Officer Court Jeske said via press release. “The passion of LouCity’s fans and the world-class facilities at Lynn Family Stadium make Louisville a natural and exciting host city for the inaugural event. Likewise, Phoenix Rising’s consistent success on and off the field helped us determine the ideal matchup for this year’s Showcase. We expect this to be the most-watched interconference match of the USL Championship regular season.”
“We’re honored to be selected for the inaugural showcase, and likewise we’re excited to bring yet another major soccer event to Louisville,” said LouCity’s chairman and CEO John Neace via press release. “This is a fantastic opportunity for our city to show itself off to the league and representatives of USL clubs from all over the country. We look forward to seeing visitors partake in local business and in turn hope the community helps us pack Lynn Family Stadium for a marquee nationally- televised game.”
“We’re excited for the opportunity to host the inaugural USL Summer Showcase,” said Greg Fante, Louisville Sports Commission Vice President of Sports Development, via press release. “Louisville is well-known for successfully hosting large prestigious sports events. Being able to add the USL Summer Showcase to this growing list of events is a direct result of Louisville Soccer Holding’s investment in our men’s and women’s soccer community.”
