Blue Chip Showcase 2023

Welcome to the Blue Chip Showcase!

Nike Blue Chip Showcase Teams,

On behalf of Kings Hammer Soccer Club, we would like to welcome you to Cincinnati, Ohio for the 2023 Nike Blue Chip Showcase. We are excited to welcome you to the Queen City for what is going to be two fantastic weekends of competition. The Blue Chip Showcase has been in existence for over 25 years and has become recognized as the Premier College Recruiting Showcase in the Midwest and one of the top College Showcases in the country.

Kings Hammer SC welcomes more than 650 teams from across the country and internationally to compete in the two Nike Blue Chip Showcases each year. Over 400 College Coaches attend over the course of the two Blue Chip Showcases each year to scout players from around the country and Canada. This event brings in elite clubs from across the United States and Canada. These teams also come from many of the top youth leagues around the country, including the ECNL, US Youth Soccer National League, US Youth Regional Leagues, SCNSL, and US Club Soccer National Premier Leagues.

In this guide, you will find all the information you need for this year’s event including links to schedules, facility maps, and local area attractions to visit while you are in town. Please take a moment to look through the guide. We also ask that you forward this link to all of your players and families, so they have this information for the weekend. The link is mobile friendly as well so they can pull it up on their phone and refer to it throughout the event.

Thank you for choosing the Blue Chip Showcase as one of your showcase events. We are excited about the great competition this year and look forward to hosting your team in Cincinnati!

Tournament Contacts




Warren County Sports Park: Parking at the Warren County Sports Park is on a first come basis. We encourage everyone to review your field locations and the park map in advance and plan to enter the park at the gate closest to your location. If you are playing on Fields 1-4, enter at Gate 1 (1408 St. Rt. 741, Lebanon, OH 45036); Fields 5-12 should enter at Gate 2 (1408 St. Rt. 741, Lebanon, OH 45036); Turf Fields enter at Gate 3 or 4 (3021 Greentree Rd., Lebanon, OH 45036). Plan to give yourself extra time for entering the complex and to find a spot as delays will occur.  Player drop-off on Rt. 741 or Greentree Rd. is strictly prohibited.

Voice of America Park: Please note that Voice of America Park has a new parking pass process. Please share this with everyone on your team to expedite receiving your pass when you arrive onsite. Everyone must purchase a pass and all passes must be purchased onsite at the event. There is no longer an option to purchase online in advance. Both cash and credit will be accepted. Passes are $8 per day or $20 for the three days. In addition, everyone must enter through the Cox Rd entrance to Voice of America Park to purchase their pass. The entrance to the park on Butler Warren Road is now an EXIT ONLY so cars will not be able to enter there. Since this is a new process, and they are rolling it out with our Women’s Blue Chip weekend, the park is anticipating some delays and hiccups. They ask for your patience and will work to get people their passes as quickly as possible. At no time may players exit cars and head to fields as this becomes a safety issue. To see a map of the complex, please click here.

Team Check-In

Since team check-in took place online in advance, you do not need to check-in when you arrive at the fields.  However, please make sure to bring your player cards to each game.
