The club hosted their annual Houston Premier Cup at three first class soccer complexes in The Woodlands, TX on January 21-22 and 28-29, 2023. The event included 250 high level U9-U15 boys and girls teams that traveled in from Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin and the states of Oklahoma, Michigan and Louisiana were represented on consecutive weekends. Unfortunately, the girls event was interrupted by in-climate weather conditions and finished early on the Sunday.
3,000+ players had the opportunity to take part in elite competition at first-class facilities in front of large audiences. Boys and girls from U9-U15 age groups were on site competing in 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 formats. Teams stayed in The Woodlands Township, enjoying full access to the incredible amenities provided by the local community.
"On behalf of the club, I would like to recognize and thank all the teams, coaching staff, referees, volunteers that helped to make both weekends a tremendous success," said Stuart Taylor, Director of Communications & Events. "Staging two first-class events on consecutive weekends for our teams to participate in meaningful games before the league season starts is very important. The feedback we have received has been extremely positive even after heavy rain on the Sunday. Based on commitments from 2023 attendees, we expect registration to fill up quickly for the 2024 events. Be ready to register your team once we open registration September 1, 2023”
"We are very privileged to have some of the best youth soccer facilities in the country right here in The Woodlands to host national level events where people come from great distances," said Simon Boddison, Director of Soccer Operations. "We are proud to provide all participants with world-class turf facilities along with quality host hotels located in close proximity to the fields and the vibrant amenities of The Woodlands."
