We are excited to announce our partnership with Main Street Sports - a new facility in Lake Zurich!
We've had a great turnout on Saturdays and Sundays, so we're going to keep it going! As this new facility gains popularity, we expect these events to sell out.
If you're familiar with our weekly tournaments, you know these are popular events! We recommend registering early. 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. You are required to pay for any of your guests who do not show up. No-shows will be recorded on your account and are grounds for being dismissed from the group.
What happens if the event is full but you want to play: Click on Notify Me. If a spot opens up for the tournament, you'll receive an email notification. However, the spot is first come, first serve.
If we start to see problems with people reserving spots and canceling at the last minute or on the day of the tournament, we will change the settings to require payment in order to RSVP.
You can sign up by yourself or with some of your friends. You may request to play on the same team as someone else. We will try our best to accommodate, but it may not always work out. We'll take care of creating the teams on the day of the tournament and making sure that everyone has a great time. All you have to do is show up ready to play!
We'll be on Field 4 playing 4v4. Cleats are not allowed. Please wear turf shoes or flats only. Shinguards are recommended.
Get the lowest price when you RSVP and pay online through PayPal:
$9 - RSVP and pay online
$10 - RSVP online and pay at the facility before you play
$11 - Walk-ups with no RSVP
We'll be on one field for two hours. Check in begins at 30 minutes prior to the posted start time. We will start the first game at the time posted for this event. When you arrive, please check in with the Sports Monster Staff. Get there early so that you can stretch and warm up. If you have not checked in by 10 minutes past the posted start time, we may give your spot away to walk-ups. To run a great tournament, it is important for players to be ready to start on time.
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 and a photo on our meetup page!
This tournament consists of four teams of 5 people (plus up to one sub).
On the day of the tournament, we'll take the RSVP list and divide it up into teams (A, B, C, & D)
You may request to play on the same team as someone else, just make a note of it when you RSVP.
Each game will last 13-15 minutes. Every team gets about an hour of playing time.
We'll keep track of the standings for the tournament.
This format is great for combining playing time with time for socializing with other fun and soccer-loving people like yourself!
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 still tied after 15 minutes, 5 minutes of 'Golden Goal' will be played. If the game is still tied or we are running short on time, there will be a penalty shoot out (no 'Golden Goal' if we're low on time).
AvB, CvD, AvC, BvD, AvD, BvC, Third Place Game, Final.
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.
