Schwan’s USA CUP features an Olympic-style ceremony showcasing ALL teams in in the tournament. This colorful parade of teams leads up to the lighting of the cauldron and is a highlight of the event! Teams march wearing team uniforms or cultural costumes representative of their homes, and many carry team banners and country or state flags. Teams will march by country, state or Minnesota soccer club.
