Chicago City Soccer Club are delighted to announce our Elite Player Pathway (EPP) and GPS National Team program for the 2017/2018 season. The Elite Player Pathway is the highest tier of programming within Chicago City, aligned with our mission statement of developing players that can complete at the highest tier of world football. Our Elite Player Pathway in recent years has seen CCSC & Chicagoland players play for the GPS National Team completing against the likes of, Liverpool, Rangers and FC Barcelona. 

While the program aims to compete at the highest level both domestically and internationally its important that our membership is clear on the full GPS Player Pathway.
