RICHMOND, Va. (March 1, 2022) – The ECNL Boys is excited to announce the rosters for the ECNL Texas National Selection Game, powered by Beyond Pulse. The ECNL Texas National Selection Game will feature top players primarily from the U16 and U17 age groups, representing more than 25 clubs. The contest will take place on March 5, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. on Field 2 at the Round Rock Multipurpose Complex.
The ECNL National Selection Games are “all-star” matches that bring top players at each regular season ECNL National Event together for representative competition on the first day of the event. They are one component of the ECNL National Selection Program, which encompasses all player identification and development programs within the league.
Those players competing in the National Selection Game will not suit up for their club on game day to ensure proper rest and preparation. Players were selected for the game by ECNL Player Identification staff through a combination of scouting and recommendations based on performances from the past several months.
As part of the league’s partnership with Hudl, each ECNL National Selection Game is also broken down by Wyscout, the world’s leading game analysis company, with technical reports shared on the ECNL’s Player ID webpage, once available.
