Boys Turn to Compete in SuperCup

The girls kicked off the Publix SuperCup last weekend at the Foley Sports Tourism (FST) fields. Now it’s the boys turn to compete September 14 – 16.

The soccer tournament has been running for five years and each year it grows by about 10 percent, said tournament director Zack Touchstone. The girls brought 130 teams to Foley last weekend and the boys are looking to top that number with 160 teams registered for divisions ranging from U9 to U19.

Part of that continual growth is due to the premier FST facilities and location.

“It’s the best facility in the region! The fields and staff make FST and easy choice,” Touchstone said. “We really appreciate the Gulf Coast of Alabama welcoming the soccer community into its backyard.”

FST Events Manager Angie Sullivan said the continued support from the Foley community helps endear the community to visitors and keep them coming back year after year.

“We are lucky to live in a place where the residents and businesses are so supportive,” Sullivan said. “People are always reaching out to see how they can be involved in our events. We’ve developed a strong base of part-time staff, volunteers, and partners to help us continually make these growing tournaments a success.”

Those looking to check out the Publix SuperCup Boys Weekend are more than welcome to do so. There will be a parking fee of $5.
