Vail Cup soccer hits valley this weekend

Daily staff report
Special to the DailyThe Vail Cup comes to town this weekend as young soccer players hit the pitch everywhere from Vail to Edwards.

EDWARDS – The Vail Valley Soccer Club (VVSC) has invited competitive soccer players from around the state to compete in this weekend’s Vail Cup, which brings 100 teams and 1,600 athletes together on fields all over the upper valley from Edwards to Vail.

“We are excited for the games to begin,” said VVSC executive director Shannon Moller. “The demand was so high to play in our tournament this year, that we actually had a wait list for teams wanting to play in our annual tournament.”

Games take place in Ford Park, Freedom Park, Eagle-Vail, Avon and on the turf at Battle Mountain High School.

“We couldn’t pull this huge event off without support from many organizations including the school district, WECMRD, and VRD. We are grateful to everyone for their support, and hope local businesses benefit in return for all the people we are bringing to town during a normally quiet weekend,” Moller said.

Age categories for the Colorado Youth Soccer (CYS) sanctioned Vail Cup are U-11-U-14 boys, and U-11-U-15 girls.
