Lake St. Louis, MO (June 5, 2022) — Keeper Wars Ink is excited to announce that we will run our 2nd Annual National Championships on July 22nd and 24th, 2022, alongside US Youth Soccer (USYS) at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida. This location is also serving as host for the 2022 US Youth Soccer National Championships.

The 2nd Annual Keeper Wars National Championship will kick off on July 22nd at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida.

Individuals are eligible to qualify based on their placement in any of Keeper Wars’ City Tour or Showcase Tour events from August to July. First-place winners in their respective age and gender brackets will automatically qualify, while another 16-24 per age and gender bracket can also earn placement — allowing for up to 240 competitors.

“The Inaugural Keeper Wars National Championship saw individuals represent 29 different states last year,” said Tonya Pinkerton, President & Co-Founder of Keeper Wars Ink. “It was incredible to see the keepers stand side by side while facing their families. We are extremely excited to witness this terrific event again!”

“Keeper Wars prides itself on putting together a unique event that gives back to goalkeepers,” said Casey Clark, CEO & Co-Founder of Keeper Wars Ink. “We’re able to find some of the best keepers in the country as we go through our national qualifying events — and they have all earned the right to compete for the national championship. Keeper Wars invites only the top individuals so that they can compete against the very best to claim the title. It’s extremely fitting that Keeper Wars hosts this prestigious event at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney where so many sports dreams are made. We look forward to building memories that will last a lifetime — at the Most Magical Place on Earth.”

Keeper Wars will continue to add to its National Championship roster with more events and the final qualifier taking place July 2-3rd in St. Louis, Missouri.
