We are proud to host the 2018 Event at World Famous Soccer Park in Fenton, MO and both of Lou Fusz’s facilities (LF Soccer Complex and LF Training Center at Rams Park)! The first annual event in 2015 attracted 112 teams and the 2016 tournament hosted 174 teams from around the midwest and we have a goal of 200 teams for this Memorial weekend event. This event is perfect for Both A and B level teams and we plan to have Premier and Gold Flights in most 9v9 and 11v11 Divisions.
