The On Goal 5v5 Cup is back!

On July 9, 2016, we will be running our second annual 5v5 soccer tournament. This fun, one-day tournament attracted 25 local teams last summer for an exciting, fast paced event, and is sure to be even bigger this time around! Here’s what a couple of the coaches who entered teams last summer had to say:

“I loved that it was 5v5 so that each player could get a good amount of touches on the ball, and it made the competition faster and more exciting. I loved the 5v5 game rules as well – it was fun to play the tournament in more of a “pick-up” soccer style.” 

“Overall, was one of the best tournaments we’ve attended because it was low commitment, low stress, and clear on what kind of tournament it wanted to be.”

It’s time to gather your friends, your award-winning jerseys (see details below regarding jersey competition), and your love for the game and get ready for the 2016 On Goal 5v5 Cup!
