August 19, 2014-Approximately 200 soccer teams will arrive in Murfreesboro over the Labor Day weekend for the 3rd annual Tennessee Cup Youth Soccer Tournament. The event runs Friday, August 29 through Monday, September 1, 2014 and will bring teams from across the region and across the country.
For four days, the Richard Siegel Championship Soccer Complex in Murfreesboro will host 8000 participants and their families daily. The tournament typically draws 35,000 visitors alongside the players.
"It's exciting to return for our 3rd Tennessee Cup in Murfreesboro this Labor Day weekend. Again, we have 200 teams coming from 12 different states plus several from all over Central Tennessee as well," said Scott Spencer, tournament director and Premier Soccer Services president. "More businesses are involved and we have a new interactive exhibitor area this year! We're looking forward to this year and returning for a long time. Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation has been a great partner and the complex looks to be ready for another great event."
Local hotels will also see the impact of the tournament. In 2013, about 2500 hotel rooms were booked in the area and the Tennessee Cup brought substantial revenue to the local businesses. With more teams participating this year, the number of booked hotel rooms will be larger. Working in partnership with the City of Murfreesboro and the Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Tennessee Cup also gives the opportunity for sponsors and vendors to target and interact with families in the local community as well as national visitors.
You don't have to travel far from home to have a great time this Labor Day weekend: The Tennessee Cup is the place to be!
