Battlefield Blast

The Battlefield Blast soccer tournament will be held August 24-25, 2019 at locations in and around historic Gettysburg, PA. This is a major Mid-Atlantic tournament, hosting both boys and girls teams, ages U9 through U18. Over the past several years, we have hosted upwards of 260 teams per tournament from all surrounding states and this year we expect more of the same. All teams will play six games over the two day event with trophies being awarded to 1st and 2nd place teams in each division of each age group.
