NCAA® Men's College Cup® Showcase

The NCAA Men’s College Cup Youth Showcase is cancelled.  Since cancelling the last two rounds of games today we have worked with the facility and the maintenance crew from AstroTurf to continue to work on the fields to have them prepared for tomorrow. However, the pace of clearing and the continued snow fall are making it impossible for the fields to be clear and safe to play by morning. Considering the updated forecast for additional snow fall through 8:00 PM this evening and freezing temperatures, this will cause ice to accumulate overnight. 

We are communicating with the insurance company regarding the cancellation and we will be in contact regarding refunds for the cancelled games in the next two weeks.

We are also communicating with Anthony Travel about the cancellation who can assist with your hotel accommodations.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.  The decision to cancel is not taken lightly, however, safety of players, spectators, referees, and staff are our primary concern, and we believe this is the best decision.
