Over 2,900 kids to take field in Kohl’s US Youth Soccer American Cup

FRISCO, Texas (November 1, 2010) – Atlanta, Ga. will host the Kohl’s US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer tournament in the United States, at McCurry Park North, McCurry Park South, Lovejoy Soccer Complex and Tyus/Cowan Park November 13-14, 2010. The Under-10 through Under-19 boys and girls participating in the Kohl’s US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together 180 teams on numerous soccer fields for the annual soccer tournament held in Atlanta, Ga.

Kohl’s American Cup offers youth soccer players an opportunity to play in a high-quality tournament in a fun, family-like atmosphere.  The program was started in 2000 as an avenue to highlight recreational soccer players and promote fair play.  Players receive equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play, with an emphasis on participation, rather than competition.

The Kohl’s American Soccer Experience Vehicle will add even more excitement to the Atlanta Kohl’s American Cup. The Soccer Experience Vehicle comes complete with three larger-than-life inflatable soccer games and numerous prizes and souvenirs for participants and their families. In 2009, Soccer Experience Vehicles 1 and 2 covered over 23,000 miles.

This event is one of over 65 Kohl’s American Cup tournaments being held from March to December.  All tournaments are open to players registered with a US Youth Soccer State Association recreational league.

Admission to Kohl’s American Cup is free.
