The Gallagher Friendlies are hosted by nationally renowned St. Louis Scott Gallagher.
Our 12th annual event will be hosted Labor Day weekend, September 1-3, 2017 at the beautiful World Wide Technology Soccer Park, SLSG Creve Coeur Complex along with SLYSA in St. Charles, Missouri. This event is played entirely in Missouri on the nicest grass and turf fields in the metro area. As an enhanced bonus, both SLSG complexes are getting new turf!. FOUR games are guaranteed! Dependent on the number of applicants, we may have Friday games and all teams WILL have Monday games in 2017.
The finest youth soccer clubs from the Midwest and across the United States are invited to participate in this three-day, high-level competition, designed to promote quality soccer and player development over wins and losses. We expect this year’s event to be of even higher quality than last year! The 2016 Tournament hosted 180 teams and the push for 200 starts now for 2017!
This event is the #1 ranked Tournament in the State of Missouri as rated by GOTSOCCER.COM.
If your club is the top team in your State or Region, this is the Tournament for you! But if your team is a second team or a second level club, we’ll have divisions for you too!

We bring in the top refs in the country to round out our four star event – Competition – check, facilities – check, organization – check and top level referee’s from Region II and beyond.
