Thousands of players will step foot on the 46 soccer fields at the National Sports Center to play in the 2014 Schwan’s USA CUP. Many of these players may be a little surprised by the sheer number of fields, playing in the stadium or the atmosphere surrounding the tournament.
A girls U15 team consisting of 18 players that stepped on the pitch at field A1 this afternoon noticed something that was unique to them, grass.
Unlike many players who travel to the tournament, the Yuwa Supergoats from Jharkhand, India do not regularly play with grass covering their fields.
The Tokiwagi Gauken High School has made it a tradition to attend Schwan’s USA CUP as they have been making the trip from Sendai, Japan for years. To put in perspective, Pam Webb is enjoying her 15th year in the Homestay Program with Tokiwagi.
