Interest growing in 7EA Tournament

By James Shaw, 10/16/18, 7:15AM MDT


The 7 Elite Academy Invitational tournament is already attracting interest from across the United States – three months before the competition is due to take place.
Teams will gather at Sullivan Virgin River Soccer Park and Little Valley Fields in Utah from January 31st 2019, with the finals being played on February 2nd.
Organisers have called on teams to register their interest early to avoid disappointment, following the success of last year’s competition at the same venue.
And with the busy Fall calendar now taking shape, clubs are keen to secure their place at the 7EA tournament.
Daren Woolstenhume, General Manager at 7 Elite Academy, said: “Since we launched our 2019 tournament just a few weeks ago, we have taken countless calls and emails from teams based all over the country.
“It is encouraging to know that word is getting around about the professionalism of our team here at 7 Elite Academy, from the management to the coaching staff and of course, the invaluable volunteers.
“We want make sure the 7 Elite Academy Invitational Tournament is the most professionally-run competition in the country. Our staff have worked with the world’s biggest soccer clubs and have the experience to make that happen.
“We are also looking to attract teams from further afield and we have started a marketing campaign to bring in clubs from the United Kingdom. That would give the tournament a true international flavour.”
Registration costs for the tournament will be $545 for teams aged under-9 to under-12 and $595 for teams aged under-13 to under-19.
Wayne Scholes, CEO of 7 Elite Academy, said: “When we first launched 7EA Invitational Tournament, we had the aim of making it a shining example of how to run a competition to true professional standards.
“Last year’s tournament showed we can do just that and with the staff we have added over the last twelve months, the 2019 version will be even better. We’ll be bringing Premier League standards to every aspect of the event.
“The fact that teams from across the United States are showing interest is testament to the high-level of organization that runs throughout our academy. We couldn’t do this without the dedication of our talented staff and volunteers.”
