In the fall of 2013, The Fort Wayne Soccer community saw the emergence of a new soccer nation, The Fort Wayne United Futbol Club. Representing the merger of two top clubs in Northern Indiana, Fort Wayne Citadel and Fort Wayne Fever Academy, The FW United FC continues to offer regional indoor and outdoor events for teams all over the Midwest. Formerly The Fort Wayne Fever 11v11 Indoor Challenges, The Fort Wayne United FC Full Field 11v11 Friendlies and College Showcases still offer some of best pre-season winter events in the Midwest. We appreciate you considering our event for your development of your players. Below you will see three types of events we offer.
1. Fort Wayne November Friendlies - NEW OPTIONS!
This event is an invite only event for the following age groups.
U10, U11, U12 boys and girls 8v8 post season friendlies - All games played Saturday, November 15th
To be considered for these friendlies you must get the approval of the event coordinator. The purpose of this event is to get quality competition together to play (2) matches in 1 day. Coaches choose to use this as a post season wrap up for teams at the U10, U11 and U12 levels. We are looking for each invited club to bring 3 girls teams and 3 boys teams. This low cost event is a great way to see the level of your kids after finsihing the fall season. The goal is to provide 2 - 60 minute games all played on Saturday with no hotel stay required.
U15, U16, U17, U18 Boys only - All games played Sunday, November 16th (unless requested to play Saturday)
To be considered for these friendlies you must get the approval of the event coordinator. This is not a college showcase but more of a friendly weekend. The purpose of this event is to get quality competition together to play (2) matches in 1 day. Coaches in the past have used this event as pre-season games for players to prepare for December college showcases or Super Y national events. This event is also a great way to see the level of your kids after finishing their high school season. The goal is to provide each team 2 - 70 minute games with limited to no hotel stay unless requested.
2. FW United FC 11v11 Indoor Winter Challenge Events
These events are held from December - January for Boys and Girls age groups: U12-U16. These are three day events, Friday-Sunday, though most teams will only play on two days. All teams play 3 games against teams from all over the Midwest. We try to ensure that we match up teams based on level of play, location of the teams (so they are not playing teams from the same state) and time travel. These events are of high demand so it is strongly suggested for teams to not wait to register.
3. FW United FC 11V11 Indoor Winter College Showcase - NEW OPTIONS!
These events are College Showcase events for Boys and Girls age groups: U17-U18. Teams are selected from registered teams throughout the Midwest. Over 300 colleges are recruited to attend the event. These are three day events, Friday-Sunday, though most teams will only play on two days. All teams play 3 games. We try to ensure that we match up teams based on level of play, location of the teams (so they are not playing teams from the same state) and travel time. These events are of high demand, it is strongly suggested that teams do not wait to register. New this year are Boys Super division games: Selected Boys teams will have the opportunity to play 1 or 2 of their showcase games against a college. This gives coaches the opportunity to see how current youth players compare with seasoned college players, instead of evaluating youth against youth.
