The GPSD organization, after some discussion of the board of directors; have decided to try and bring back some of the old soccer events (i.e. tournaments, cups, etc…), that were once very popular in the Portland metro area.
For that purpose the will organize the Nations’ Cup tournament during the Memorial Day weekend holiday in 2020. OASA has also offered their support for this tournament and we are very excited to be bringing it back to Portland.
It shall consist of five (5) divisions: Open 1st, Open 2nd, O/30, O/40, O/50 with any of those divisions being broken into multiple groups depending on number of registered teams. The tournament is scheduled to take place at Delta Park or the Eastside Timbers Sports Complex in Gresham.
- The games will consist of 25 minute halves (with the final being 2x30 in length)
- Each team will be guaranteed 3 matches
- First place will receive a winner’s trophy in each division
- Second place will receive a commemorative plaque
Registration for the tournament will be available on the website early in 2020.
The tournament registration is anticipated to be $450/team. The league is interested in prompting the spirit of soccer in Oregon; as well as bringing back the old glory of the game to Portland. To the registered teams – there will be a set of tournament rules sent to them and these rules will also be posted on the GPSD website.
