Schwan’s USA CUP teams competing in both the weekend and weeklong tournaments will have a day off from game action, giving teams an opportunity to seek out thrills and adventure throughout the Twin Cities. USA CUP players opting to head to Valleyfair Amusement Park will have the exciting opportunity to meet a professional soccer player while experiencing Valleyfair’s exhilarating attractions. 

USA CUP is providing free transportation to Valleyfair, Minnesota’s top amusement park, on Monday, July 17. Buses will depart from the dorms and the National Sports Center (NSC) at 9:00a.m., allowing a full day to explore the park before buses will return to the dorms and the NSC in the late afternoon (4:00p.m.) or evening (7:00p.m.).

Minnesota United FC, Minnesota’s top professional soccer club, is offering a tantalizing reason to stay through the evening at Valley fair. From 4:00-5:30p.m., there will be a special Minnesota United player appearance by Loons’ defender Brent Kallman, who will be signing autographs on the Midway stage. Kallman, a vital member of Minnesota United’s back line, is a Woodbury, Minn. native and was an annual participant in USA CUP as a youth player.

Valleyfair is offering a discounted ticket for USA CUP participants and families, allowing unlimited access to all rides, shows, the newly-expanded Soak City Waterpark, and Planet Snoopy™. Visit, and click onto the “USA CUP Activities” link to print off the flyer to present at the Valleyfair ticket booth to receive the special rate.
