The East-West All-Star Games have lived up to their billing of seeing tomorrow’s stars today, as many former all-star players wear NCCA National Championship rings, Super Bowl rings, NBA Championship rings, or have participated in soccer’s World Cup.

Men’s and Women’s soccer were added to All-Star Week in 1992. Legendary coaches Bob Catapano, Zack Osborne, and Herk DeGraw were featured that year.

The matches have always been played at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Soccer Stadium pitch. Attendance runs about 1200 to 1500 fans each year.

On six occasions, five or more goals have been scored in a match.

Most player participants have gone on to compete collegiately and several have played professionally. As with football and basketball, these games are a great showcase for the best players, coaches, and officials in the state of North Carolina.
