On August 2-4, 2014 Carlsbad’s soccer retailer soccerloco is hosting the 34th Annual San Diego soccerloco Surf Cup. And yeah, it’s a pretty big deal.
The 2014 tournament will host over 400 college coaches and scouts. This is not only one of the most sought-after title accolades in youth soccer but it is also one of the largest, with over a hundred different clubs flying in and traveling to the beautifully polished Del Mar polo fields. One of the competing clubs at the event this year stems from Carlsbad’s very own community, the Carlsbad United FC. The most important aspect of this tournament is not necessarily about winning but it is more so about building teamwork skills and networking with some of the best within the local soccer community.
Soccerloco’s President Jon Lococo is proud to be associated with the event. “This event is a big part of the San Diego community culture and we are really looking forward to seeing all the clubs come out and play,” says Lococo.
