WESTON CUP & SHOWCASE
February 13-16, 2015 | Presidents’ Day Weekend
WESTON CUP & SHOWCASE
Florida’s premier Presidents’ Day Weekend tournament for boys and girls teams. In 2014, the Weston Cup had 565 teams from throughout Florida, multiple states, and international teams from Haiti and Ireland that competed at four facilities which included over 30 playing fields. Teams from outside Florida, including international teams participate each year. The tournament will offer four levels of competition: Showcase, Gold, Silver, and Bronze for U8 through U19 boys and girls teams. For 2015 we are expecting 600+ teams from out-of-state, across Florida, and internationally.
The Weston Cup & Showcase will again be held Presidents’ Day Weekend, February 13-16, 2015. We anticipate teams from across Florida, out-of-state and international teams. The Weston Cup & Showcase is sanctioned by Florida Youth Soccer Association (FYSA) and US Club Soccer.
Competition will begin on Saturday, February 14 and the tournament concludes on Monday, February 16, 2015. It is possible that local teams will begin play on Friday, February 13. Teams from out of the area who wish to play on Friday, in effort to spread out their games, may also be included to do so, but no guarantee can be given to accommodate such requests.
The main sites will be Weston Regional Park and Vista Park in Weston and Central Park and Pine Island in Plantation with the additional sites to be determined. Weston Regional Park is one of Florida’s Premier Facilities and has hosted the State Cup Final Four and many regional events. Vista Park was opened for our 2005 Tournament and is a premier facility with four full size lit fields. Central Park and Pine Island are excellent soccer facilities and are considered to some of the best in the state of Florida.
Showcase Division is open to Boys and Girls U15, U16, U17, U18 and U19.
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Divisions are open to Boys and Girls U8 through U19.
The Weston Cup & Showcase has added a special U13 division for U12 teams looking to play 11v11 in preparation for the 2014-2015 soccer season. This division will only be for U12 teams. Depending on the total number of applied teams, Gold and Silver groups may be added to the special U13 division for U12 teams to better place teams according to the competitive level of the applied teams. Please note the special U13 division will play under the U13 rules as noted in the Tournament Rules and the registration fee will be the standard U13 fee ($650.00 per team). If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
