The National League provides an avenue for teams to play in meaningful matches against top competition from across the country for continued development and opportunities for exposure at the national team, collegiate and professional levels. In addition to recruiting opportunities http://www.idevmail.net/link.aspx?l=38&d=26&mid=3689921&m=11688 the top finishers from each division will earn a ticket to the 2020 US Youth Soccer National Championships http://www.idevmail.net/link.aspx?l=39&d=26&mid=3689921&m=11688 in Overland Park, Kan., creating additional value and pressure as each game could make or break their chance at competing for the National Championship. The top finishers in the 14U-18U age groups can also earn an automatic spot in the 2020-21 National League season.
Just four boys teams and eight girls teams have solidified a place in the 2020 National Championships. Entering play in Las Vegas, 36 spots — 20 for the boys and 16 for the girls — are still up for grabs, as a majority of the teams head into the event with hopes of punching a ticket to Overland Park.
Since its inception, National League teams have captured a combined 77 of 100 possible National Championships. For a list of past National League champions and history, click here http://www.idevmail.net/link.aspx?l=40&d=26&mid=3689921&m=11688

All 14U Boys and Girls teams will compete in Las Vegas and play the final three games of their seasons.
