Placer United Prestige Girls Cup to Bring in the Soccer Players

20 Oct, 2015


Placer United Soccer Club will be hosting their annual Prestige Girls Cup on October 23-25 where more than 3,000 soccer players in age groups U11 to U18 from all over California, Nevada and Oregon will be competing for a championship cup trophy that will be awarded to the winning team in each age division.  Placer Valley Tourism is delighted to have partnered up again with Placer United to bring a tournament of this magnitude to Placer Valley.  

With a twenty plus year history, the Prestige Girls Cup has garnered a reputation of being the biggest and most competitive fall event in Northern California for girls competitive youth soccer.  This year is on track to be the biggest and best yet with 214 teams registered to play.  32 fields throughout Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Loomis and Elverta will be utilized due to the record number of teams participating this year. 

Jodi Tarr, Placer United Club Administrator, explained that this tournament gives players and teams the opportunity to compete at the highest level because it attracts the best teams in the western United States. "It brings so many families to Placer Valley and I am especially thankful for our partnership with PVT because of their support in helping all the out-of-town families find nice and affordable hotels to stay at while their daughters are here competing," added Tarr.  

The Placer United Prestige Girls Cup brings more than 6,000 people to Placer Valley which not only helps the local economy, but it generates 14,000 room nights for Roseville, Rocklin and Lincoln hotels, virtually selling them out those nights.

Games on the Friday of play are scheduled to start at 6 p.m. and  on both Saturday and Sunday the first games of the day will be at 8 a.m. at various fields.  To see the full schedule click here.   All games are free to spectators and they are guaranteed to be action-packed and full of intense soccer competition!
