Gateway Showcase 2023

Welcome to the Gateway Showcase!

Gateway Showcase Teams,

On behalf of Kings Hammer Soccer Club, we would like to welcome you to Cincinnati for the 2023 Gateway Showcase. We are looking forward to a fun and competitive weekend of soccer!

The Gateway Showcase is designed to provide “early season” opportunities for potential college-bound athletes to display their talents in front of college coaches. Our goal is to create a high-quality competitive event for teams to compete early in the season. The Gateway Showcase traditionally attracts more than 350 teams and over 150 college coaches over the two weekends. Kings Hammer SC welcomes teams from across the country and internationally to compete in the Gateway Showcase.

The Warren Co Sports Park will host 4 turf fields and Voice of America will have 2 turf fields. Additional local Turf Facilities will also be used to ensure all games are played on the best surfaces possible.

In this guide, you will find all the information you need for this year’s event including links to schedules, facility maps, and local area attractions to visit while you are in town. Please take a moment to look through the guide. We also ask that you forward this link to all of your players and families, so they have this information for the weekend. The link is mobile friendly as well so they can pull it up on their phone and refer to it throughout the event.

Thank you for choosing the Gateway Showcase! We are excited about the great competition this year and look forward to hosting your team in Cincinnati!

Team Check-In

Since team check-in took place online in advance, you do not need to check-in when you arrive at the fields. However, please make sure to bring your player cards to each game.

Athletic Trainers

Trainers will be located at Voice of America Park, Warren County Sports Park, and Riverside Park throughout the weekend in case your child needs to be evaluated for an injury. Some of the high schools may also have an athletic trainer onsite as well.

Weather Updates

In the event of inclement weather, we will update our website with details on the field status. If anything changes from a weather or field standpoint for the weekend we will inform all Coaches and Team Managers as listed in the GotSport system. Please make sure to update your team contact information if you have not already done so.
