It all started...
Back in 1996, Adrian Eyre started Soccer In Sun Tournaments. Alex Trettin stepped in to “Keep The Dream Alive” after Adrian’s unfortunate and sudden passing in 1999. We honor Adrian’s memory by making fair play our first priority and constantly curating the quality of our participating teams, the competition between them, securing the best available fields, and taking pride in our dedicated staff. We look forward to seeing you on the pitch with the best soccer tournaments in the US, 22 years running!
On Saturday, October 23rd, 2021 Soccer in the Sun will host an 11 versus 11 tournament: The Harvest Cup. This tournament will take place at the Francisco Grande Hotel and Resort in beautiful Casa Grande, Arizona. This resort sports 8 amazing MLS grade pitches.
The tournament is a 3-day Adult Men's Soccer event with an 11 versus 11 tournament format. MLS teams use this resort for spring training. This year’s teams included the LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders to name just a few. The amazing grounds at the resort contain brand new, full size grass soccer fields; not to mention a great swimming pool, a world class 18-hole golf course and an awesome hotel.
We will have six divisions in the tournament: Over 35, Over 40, Over 48, Over 55, Over 60 and *NEW* Over 65. The age requirements are that every player must turn the age of their bracket this year. Each team will play four 60 minute games (two on Saturday and two on Sunday) and the semi finals will be Sunday evening. The perfectly maintained grass fields have nice, even playing surfaces, and lots of cushion. The Harvest Cup will include loads of fun soccer activities, camaraderie, and optional excursions.
See you on the pitch!
