The dog days of summer are upon us. Long days filled with sunshine, warm weather, making memories with friends and family--it’s a great time to be outside enjoying all the things our city has to offer. It’s also a wonderful time to schedule an outdoor tournament at one of our many sporting fields and the Brantford Galaxy Youth Soccer Club is busy preparing for the biggest soccer event of the season in Brantford.
This year’s 22nd annual Brantford Soccer Classic Tournament will take to the fields throughout the city from Friday August 9th to Sunday August 11th. Here is the tournament at a glance:
3 Days of competition
28 Soccer pitches
Games throughout the weekend will be played at sixteen city locations. With boys and girls divisions starting at U9 all the way to U18, this tournament is widely regarded as one of the must-attend soccer tournaments in southern Ontario. And with family and friends all cheering on their team, this tournament itself adds an estimated $397,500 into the local economy through hotel stays, restaurant dining and shopping.
Thank you to the Brantford Galaxy Youth SC, their incredible volunteers and community supporters who make this tournament a great success each year. Keep an eye out over that weekend for all the extra soccer teams running around the city and be sure to wish them well during the tournament!
