Turf Wars will take place December 7th-8th in Richmond, Virginia. With 12 fully lit synthetic turf fields, RVA Turf Wars can easily accommodate over 100 teams. It just makes sense to attend a fall tournament at a fully synthetic turf venue and eliminate concerns about cancellations for inclement weather.
2024 will be the 2nd year of U14-U19 Super Groups.  These Super Groups are invitation only to top teams across the country and International teams.  Another way to earn entry into the Super Group is to win the Qualifier EventU14-U19 Super Groups will have all games filmed and provided to each team!
