Rocket City Invitational Details

I'm so bummed that I have to go out of town this weekend for a wedding. That means I'll miss the highly anticipated Rocket City Invitational at John Hunt Soccer Park. The guys at Southern Soccer put on a nice tournament. Here's the post from the Weekend Warrior's tournament this past February.

This one should be even more fun, as they have plenty of extra curricular activities planned in conjunction with the games themselves. Here's a breakdown of the tournament festivities.

  • 12 teams in the Open Divsion (including an RCU team), 4 in the Rec Division, 4 in the Over-30 Division and 4 in the Co-ed Division.
  • Each participant will receive a "sweet" official Rocket City Tournament beverage koozie.
  • Each team will play multiple games on the Stadium fields.
  • World Football Challenge viewing at Parkway Place Mall on Friday night and Sunday afternoon
  • Mist tent provided by Cool Temp
  • Music will be pumped through the stadium PA throughout the tournament.
  • Rocket City United tent with various promotional goodies
  • RCU Kid's Zone will be going for the kiddies
  • Forevergreen Golden Boot award for top goal scorer in each division
  • Crossbar challenge contest with the Finals to be held at half time of the RCU match. 50% of the proceeds will go to Kitty's Miracle Fund.
  • Discounted tickets to RCU game that night against Nashville Metros PDL team
  • Tournament party at Leeann's down town. Drink specials for all participants!
  • 10% of tournament proceeds to Kitty's Miracle Fund
Should be a great time. I'll may have to get a special correspondent to cover the goings-on.

  1. yeah, I was hoping for video coverage of the tournament like last year! Maybe I'll break out my camera, or delegate somebody to be the videographer.
