Temecula United plays host to largest soccer tournament in California

TEMECULA – Temecula United Soccer Club recently hosted over 100 games for the largest soccer tournament in California.

Over the weekends of April 4-5 and April 11-12, Cal South brought the President’s State Cup to town to play at the widely acclaimed Patricia Birdsall soccer fields in Temecula.

Teams that participated ranged from Ventura County to San Diego County to local Temecula United teams.

The President’s State Cup was wildly successful and officials from Cal South indicated there was a very good chance for future tournaments in Temecula.

Because teams played games on both Saturday and Sunday, Temecula hotels, restaurants, and other businesses all benefited from the influx of people.

Temecula United parents and players volunteered both weekends to ensure a well-run tournament. Temecula United volunteers assisted Cal South officials in helping check teams in, sell apparel and doing whatever it took to run a smooth operation.

Temecula United’s Mark Anselmo and Tracy Nielsen organized the event and Temecula United volunteers expressed professionalism and efficiency while working the tournament.
