Placer to Host Soccer Action this Weekend
22 Oct, 2018
Placer Valley Tourism (PVT) is teaming up with Placer United Soccer Club for the biggest and most competitive all-female fall soccer tournament in Northern California. On Oct. 26-28 the Placer United Girls Cup will return, bringing nearly 3,000 youth soccer players ages 10 to 19 to Placer Valley.
Placer United will use 10 different locations on 27 fields in Lincoln, Loomis, Rocklin, Roseville and Cherry Island Soccer Complex in Elverta. Teams from Alaska, Idaho, Nevada, Utah and all throughout California will be arriving to compete in this prestigious three-day event.
"This year we are excited to have 162 teams participating and are looking forward to the high-level competition this tournament provides on the great fields we have in our area" stated Placer United Club Administrator Jodi Tarr. "By the end of the weekend we will have crowned 22 teams as champions of the Placer United Girls Cup!"
Kim Summers, Director of Marketing for PVT, explained that the 23 hotels in Roseville, Rocklin and Lincoln essentially fill to capacity due to the sheer number of players, coaches and families that come to play and stay for this tournament. Several teams will even have to book hotels outside of Placer Valley in nearby markets.
"Not only is this tournament one of the most competitive in Northern California, the economic impact to Placer Valley is significant," added Summers. "Because of our top-notch amenities and the fact that Placer United continually puts on such a great event, teams return year after year knowing they are going to have a fun, memorable time here."
All games are free to spectators! The tournament schedule is available online here and those interested can also sign up to have mobile updates sent to any cell phone.
