Chattanooga Sports Ministries is hosting the 6th Annual Neighborhood Cup Futsal Tournament on Friday, Nov. 16 and Saturday, Nov. 17. Teams of boys and girls ages eight-14 residing in neighborhoods spanning from Signal Mountain to East Chattanooga will compete between 6-9 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday. All the games will be held at Highland Park Commons, a turf soccer complex, 2000 Union Ave.
“The game of soccer brings together a diverse group of players and spectators because it’s a universal sport,” said Katelyn Newsome, executive director of Chattanooga Sports Ministries.
“We host the Neighborhood Cup Soccer Tournament to connect teams from neighborhoods throughout the Greater Chattanooga area for a fun weekend of soccer.”
The Neighborhood Cup offers both a competitive and recreational bracket. The price to register a team is $200. "Proceeds from the Neighborhood Cup will benefit Chattanooga Sports Ministries (CSM). CSM impacts the lives of over 200 youth between the ages of five-18 annually through their year-round soccer program. Presently, CSM focuses their efforts and outreach on four Chattanooga urban neighborhoods: East Chattanooga, East Lake, Highland Park, and Emma Wheeler Homes. The program serves a very diverse group of youth including children from Latino, African American, and Caucasian backgrounds," officials said.
The deadline for team registration is Nov. 9. To register your team for the tournament or to make a donation, visit www.chattsportsministries.org
