RICHMOND, Va. (November 15, 2022) – The ECNL Boys is excited to announce the rosters for the Continental Tire ECNL National Selection Game. This year’s game marks the one-year anniversary of the first-ever National Selection Game, which took place in Tucson, AZ last year in front of a crowd of over 1600 people. The National Selection Game in Phoenix will take place at Reach 11 Soccer Complex on November 18, 2022, at 6:15 PM on Field 1 and will be live streamed here. The game will feature players from the U17-U18/19 age groups.

The Continental Tire ECNL National Selection Games are “all-star” matches that bring top players at each regular season ECNL National Event together for representative competition on the first day of the event. They are one component of the ECNL National Selection Program, which encompasses all player identification and development programs within the league. 

Players were selected for the games by ECNL Player Identification staff through a combination of scouting and recommendations based on performances over the past several months. These athletes will not compete for their clubs on this day in order to properly rest and prepare for the National Selection Game.
