About The Soccer Tournament
On June 1, 32 teams will descend on WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC, for a four-day tournament with the winners taking home $1 million. It’s certainly not your traditional soccer tournament with different rules, procedures and a collection of squads comprised of legends, professionals, up-and-coming talents, amateurs, viral street sensations and everyone in-between. So far, 21 competing clubs have been revealed including Borussia Dortmund, Liga MX’s Club Necaxa, EFL promotion hopefuls Wrexham AFC and a squad of USWNT legends.
Team US Women
US Women will be captained by legendary US Women’s National Team player Heather O’Reilly. O’Reilly has been playing professional soccer since 2004 and has over 230 US National Team caps. This experience has allowed her to put together a roster full of some of the best women’s soccer players in the world, included on the roster Berky Visting Pro’s Lori Lindsey and Kristine Lilly. The team will include Mia Hamm as an assistant coach. Mia was a two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion with the USWNT playing for 17 years. As they’ve done time and time again, these ladies will look to prove you wrong en route to the $1 million prize!
