Hi coach,

On the 5th of January 2018 KingsTalent schedules its 4th Showcase in Gemert, The Netherlands.

KingsTalent is a Dutch recruiting agency. We assist high quality soccer prospects to achieve their dreams and goals by studying and playing college soccer in the US. Since 2015, over 100 players have travelled to the US to live their dreams; study and play college soccer. Only the best Dutch players are selected to attend our Showcase on the 5thof January.

All attending players are pre-screenedby KingsTalent. Meaning we have seen the players in live action at least once. We have evaluated their ability(on and off the field) and eligibility on forehand. We guarantee they will be eligible to play in the fall of 2019. Furthermore, all players will have their test results available on the 5th of January. This information will be provided prior to the showcase.

Location Showcase
Sportpark VV Gemert
Sportlaan 9, 5421SK
Gemert, The Netherlands

The event will be held at VV Gemert.
VV Gemert is one of the biggest semi-pro clubs in Holland. The club possesses six match fields. Including three artificial turf fields.
The showcase will be held in the stadium, the pitch is fully lightened. Last year, a new artificial turf field has been installed. Good to play the best soccer on the best pitch.

Artificial grass means we are able to continue to play in all weather conditions. However, extreme conditions can be an exception. We don’t expect this to occur. In case it does, the showcase event can be cancelled.
