Team Registration is OPEN! Sign Up TODAY!
UPDATE: 5/8/2015 -- Due to lack of interest, there will not be an Over 65 bracket this year as initially planned.
UPDATE: 2/19/2015 -- Since we only have 52 rooms available at the Francisco Grande Resort (and EVERYONE wants to stay there), we are going to run a lottery for the rooms. To enter, your team must be registered and paid in full by March 9, 2015. You MUST email Lori or Alex to notify them that want to stay at the Francisco Grand resort and how many rooms you would like for your team. If you win the lottery, all rooms must be deposited by March 16, 2015 with a $200 Non refundable deposit or risk forfeiting your rooms to another team.
Join Soccer in Sun for our 5th Annual Arizona Soccer Tournament starting Saturday, October 10, 2015 through Monday, October 12, 2015. Registration will be opening soon! The Columbus Cup is an 11 versus 11 tournament and will take place at the Francisco Grande Hotel and Resort in beautiful Casa Grande, Arizona.
This three day event will take place on eight amazing World Cup grade pitches. Each team plays four games on these immaculate fields, but when you're ready to relax the resort boasts a great swimming pool, a world class 18-hole golf course, and an excellent restaurant.
We will have four divisions in the tournament: ten over 35 teams, sixteen over 40 teams, sixteen over 48 teams, ten over 55 teams, and ten over 60 teams and five over 65 teams (new this year!) -- a grand total of 67 teams! To qualify for each division, every player must turn the age of that bracket this year.
*NEW* This year, for the over 40 & over 48 brackets, we are going to run a standard 16 team format with a catch -- there won’t be any consolation games. For these two brackets, the outcome of your first 3 games will put you in either the gold bracket or the silver bracket. From there, each group will then play a quarter final, semifinal and final. Because this will add 3 games to the mix, there will be a $45 dollar surcharge to play in these brackets.
For over 35, over 55, over 60 and over 65 each team will play in the usual "round robin" elimination style.
The semi-finals and finals will be held early Monday morning.
Our games will be played once more at the always perfectly maintained Grande Sports World Complex, directly next door to the Francisco Grande Hotel. The grass fields have nice, even playing surfaces and lots of cushion. If you haven't played there before, you will love it! The Columbus Cup will include loads of fun soccer activities, camaraderie, and great weather.
Registration is only $650, so register today! A $300, non-refundable deposit reserves a tournament slot for your team and must be received by July 1, 2015.
We have great hotel packages at the closest and best hotels starting at $99 per room, per night, including breakfast! These discounted rates are only available through our website or by calling Lori at 253-383-8000. As Fall begins and the weather starts to turn, head down South to Casa Grande, Arizona for the Columbus Cup - with your friends at Soccer in Sun!
