In 2005, the Quincy Soccer Classic was developed with the sole purpose of one day becoming the BEST high school soccer tournament in the NATION! After two years in Quincy, IL. the event was moved to the St. Louis, MO. area and became the Gateway City Soccer Classic. Over the years, the event continued to grow and expand out to teams from all across the country. To date, the Classic has hosted 97 teams from 18 different states.
Due to the commitment of the organizers to this event, they have decided to continue promoting High School soccer by having an All-American game for Seniors from fall playing states. 2011 was the first year for boys, and after two successful years, a girl's game was added in 2013. In addition to these young men and women playing in a game, they will also be exposed to the NCAA Division I College Cup which will be taking place the same weekend and in close proximity.
