The Gateway Showcase is designed to provide "early in the season" opportunities for potential college bound athletes to display their talents in front of many college coaches. The Gateway Showcase is supported by the same group that organizes the adidas Blue Chip Showcase. Our goal is to create a high quality event. To do this, the Gateway will have limited number of teams across a limited number of fields. The Gateway will play on synthetic turf across locations all within 10 minutes of each other. The minimization of the number of locations and the proximity of the locations will increase the opportunities for coaches to see more matches.
