The full MLS NEXT Cup playoffs and exhibition schedule will be available HERE and the final league rankings for 2023-24 are available HERE.

Teams that do not qualify for the MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs may also participate in the MLS NEXT Cup Showcase. Showcase provides MLS NEXT players the opportunity to compete in front of hundreds of collegiate, international and professional coaches and scouts. Additionally, the U-13 and U-14 age groups will return this year to compete in the MLS NEXT Cup Showcase. All clubs participating in the MLS NEXT Cup Showcase will play three games over four days. Clubs eliminated in the first two rounds of the MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs are also eligible to participate in the Showcase.

Sporting’s under-15 teams will compete in an exhibition match starting Saturday against the West Florida Flames. They will then face Ventura County Fusion and Rochester NY FC Academy to conclude the competition.

The event will also feature five MLS NEXT “Best Of” matches, with top players from MLS NEXT Cup Showcase teams competing in the U-13, U-14, U-15, U-16 and U-17/U- 18 age groups. These players are selected based on their performance in league play, MLS NEXT Fest and MLS NEXT Flex. “Best Of” matches provide players with a unique opportunity to compete against each other while top collegiate, international and professional coaches evaluate their performances.
