We're playing our popular weekly tournaments indoors and we are excited to offer them every Wednesday night this winter! We need a minimum of 17 people to sign up in order to make the tournament happen. Every team gets 4 games!!
If you've played in our tournaments before, you'll be familiar with how this evening will work. You can sign up by yourself or with some of your friends. You may also request to play on the same team as someone else. We welcome full teams to sign up together.
Please, if you sign up and change your mind, change your RSVP so that someone else can play. If you RSVP for guests, it is your responsibility to make sure that your guest count is accurate. No-shows will be recorded on your account and are grounds for being dismissed from the group.
If you sign up by yourself, we'll take care of creating the teams on the day of the tournament. All you have to do is show up ready to play!
We'll have one fields for two hours. Each team will have up to one sub. You may wear turf shoes, indoor shoes, gym shoes, or flats. Cleats are not allowed. Shinguards are mandatory.
Get the lowest price when you RSVP and pay online through PayPal. If you have a credit from a cancelled tournament, please email us to use your credit:
$10 - RSVP and pay online
$10 - RSVP online and pay at the field before you play
$15 - Walk-ups with no RSVP
We'll be on one field for two hours. We will start on time at 9:00. When you arrive, please check in with the Sports Monster Staff. Get there early so that you can stretch and warm up.
You can pay using a credit card or your PayPal account. Or, you can RSVP online and pay cash when you get to the event.
We do our best to create even teams each week. The entire tournament takes place in one evening and the winners are rewarded with bragging rights.
3 points for a win, 1 for a tie and 0 for a loss. The teams in the final two games are decided by points, then goal difference then goals scored. If the Final is tied after 15 minutes, 5 minutes of 'Golden Goal' will be played. If the game is still tied, there will be a penalty shoot out.
If the tournament fills up, we will open a waiting list.
If we don't have enough players to run the tournament, we'll cancel by 6:00 and send an email. Players who paid online will receive a refund.
Refunds or credits are available if you change your RSVP from "Yes" to "No" at least 48 hours before the day you wish to play. If you change your response to "No" less than 48 hours before the tournament, you will receive a credit only if your spot is filled by another player.
Refunds offered if:
Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
