4-Team Tournament Format:
We play the entire tournament in this two-hour event! Sign up by yourself, with a friend, or as a whole team. We make the teams on site as players check in. We do our best to accommodate team requests as long as players arrive before the posted start time. You will receive 4 guaranteed games (up to 15-minutes each). Teams play each of the other 3 teams in pool play. The standings from pool play games will determine who plays in the championship game and who plays in the consolation game. The winners of the tournament will have their picture taken and posted on our meetup page to forever capture their moment of glory! If we have less than enough people for 4 teams, we may modify this event to be a 3-team tournament or 2-team pickup.
What to Wear
We are playing on an old-turf field. Cleats are not allowed. You may wear turf shoes, flats, indoor shoes, or gym shoes. Please wear shinguards. Please bring your shoes and change into them at the facility. This will help keep the floor clean of dirt and water.
What to Expect
Show up early! The games will begin at the time posted for this event. Players may start checking in with the event host as early as 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. If the field is available, you may begin warming up before the event begins. We will provide a game ball.
Level of Play
Males and females 18 and older of all skill levels are invited to play. There is no required gender ratio. We do our best to create even teams for well-matched games. There are no referees, so players need to play with sportsmanship and make their own calls. We aim to make everyone feel welcome at these events.
Soccer City is located in Palatine. There are three fields at this location. We will be on field 3, which you can easily access through the south-end doors (closest to the roller rink).
There is plenty of free parking in the parking lot.
If you're taking public transit, it's within walking distance the Arlington Park Metra Stop on the Northwest Line.

This event needs a minimum of 12 people (not including the host) signed up before the start of the event in order to run. An email notification will be sent if we cancel. Refunds or credits will be issued if we cancel the event. Sign up early to encourage more people to sign up!!
