Fort Wayne United Winter Indoor Events

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 are the events we offer.
 

1. Thanksgiving Friendlies - NEW IN 2017!

NO goalies, No referee, small goals. U14-U19 will play (3) 45 min 8v8 (1 referee, 7 field players plus goalie) games. This event is only $25/player and each team is guaranteed 3 games!

 

2. U12-U13 Small Sided Games
For this event each team will play 6 games!
These events are held in December for Boys and Girls age groups: U12-U13. These are two day events, taking place on Saturday & Sunday. This event is created for the purpose of player development in order to maximize touches per player. We feel these age groups should be less focused in the winter on 11v11 tactics and more on development technical awareness and speed of play through small sided game.  All teams play games against competition 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.
