The USL Summer Showcase is taking over Louisville!


We're inviting the entire American soccer community to help us celebrate soccer in the United States and the USL’s role in shaping its future at all levels.


The 2023 Summer Showcase will bring together two sides with new coaches and revamped rosters in pursuit of a spot in the USL Championship Playoffs. The Switchbacks are led by first-year Head Coach Stephen Hogan who joined the club in 2021 as an assistant coach and became the club’s Technical Director at the end of that season. The club reached last year’s Western Conference Final and ranked fifth overall with 64 goals scored as one of the most attacking sides in the league.

The United Soccer League (USL) along with LouCity, Louisville Sports Commission (LSC), and Louisville Tourism are excited for the 2022 Summer Showcase on Wednesday, July 20th.  The Fan Fest will entertain fans of all ages with fun soccer games and local attractions outside Gate 5 and 4 at Lynn Family Stadium.
