Soccer Tournament Starts Saturday
Youth soccer teams from across the region will descend upon El Paso this weekend for the 13th Annual Academy Sports and Outdoors Sun Bowl International Soccer Tournament. Over 150 teams will convene at the Westside Sports Complex beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 9, for the two-day tournament.
“The Sun Bowl Association strives to cater to the El Paso community with all of our events throughout the year,” Sun Bowl Association Executive Director Bernie Olivas said. “We have been fortunate enough to have found a supporting sponsor like Academy Sports + Outdoors that shares our passion for this community and values the importance of athletics in our youth. This is one of few of our events that is specifically geared for children and we are very excited to see it in its 13th year of existence.”
Academy Sports + Outdoors, with two locations in the city, is in the fourth year of sponsoring the international affair that is open to all U6 to U16 boys and girls teams in the region. The competition ranges from recreational to very competitive in every age group.
The Sun Bowl Association and Academy Sports + Outdoors are joined by the City of El Paso, the El Paso Parks and Recreation Department, the El Paso Youth Soccer Association and Fort Bliss to bring the highest level of competition to the children of El Paso.
The Westside Sports Complex is located on 201 Isela Rubalcava directly behind Canutillo High School and El Paso Community College.
