The Boys and Girls Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) Florida National Events will remain in Seminole County from 2020 through 2023.
The Greater Orlando Sports Commission, Orlando North Seminole County, Orlando City Youth Soccer, and the ECNL announced the signing of the new deal in late July.
“With all the excitement generated by the 2019 MLS All-Star Game here in Greater Orlando (sic), we couldn’t think of a better time to announce the continuation of our longstanding partnership with the Boys and Girls ECNL,” said Jason Siegel, CEO of the Greater Orlando Sports Commission.
Boys ECNL Florida is returning for the third time from December 28-30, 2019 and Girls ECNL Florida for the tenth time from January 10-12, 2020. Together both events are expected to showcase more than 350 youth soccer teams, 7,000 participants, and draw hundreds of college coaches and spectators from across the United States.
“Thank you to Seminole County, Orlando City Youth Soccer, the Florida Sports Foundation, and to our local hoteliers and tourism community for their support as we continue to position our region as the preferred destination for premier soccer events,” Siegel said.
