LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (June 6, 2017) – The online application process is now open for this year’s Disney Soccer Showcase series presented by AS Roma. For more information and to submit applications for the event at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort, please visit:

This year’s Disney Girls Soccer Showcase starts Thanksgiving weekend instead of its traditional late December kickoff, while the Disney Boys Soccer Showcase will resume its usual Christmas weekend timeframe. The girls’ November start allows the younger age groups to compete at the same time as the older age groups and allows for more matches to be played at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, one of six local event venues.

Disney Soccer Showcase, arguably the nation’s premier youth soccer tournament for boys and girls U13- U19, is the ultimate opportunity for top youth soccer players to be seen by hundreds of collegiate coaches looking for prospective student-athletes. The event is perhaps the country’s top soccer recruiting tournament.

Disney Soccer Showcase is one of several prestigious soccer events held at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, the official preseason training home of Italian soccer powerhouse AS Roma. In addition to hosting the new IdeaSport youth soccer program presented by Walt Disney World Resort and LaLiga, it hosts 12 soccer events including the Disney Cup International, the Disney Memorial Day Soccer Shootout, the Disney 3v3 Soccer Championship, the Disney Pre-Season Soccer Kickoff and the Disney President’s Day Soccer Festival.
