The annual Houston Youth Cup 2022 provided much needed pre-season competition in August and raised substantial financial funding ($90K) to support the club's scholarship fund. Since 2005, this scholarship event has raised over $1.25 million, allowing the club to assist around 125 families per year to play youth soccer.

This year’s tournament featured three hundred and twelve (312) U11-U19 boys and girls teams from all across the region with matches taking place at eleven sites in The Woodlands, Tomball and the Conroe area. The GotSoccer ranked event allowed each team a minimum of three games over the course of the weekend.

"Thank you to all the teams, coaches, managers, volunteers, referees and sponsors for all their support of the tournament," said Stuart Taylor, Tournament Director. "It’s the effort from everyone involved that makes this pre-season youth soccer event a tremendous success."

Special thanks to our facility partners The Woodlands Township and Conroe Parks & Recreational. This pre-season tournament for the area brought an estimated 20,000 spectators to the local community, providing a large economic boost to local hotels and businesses. The club would like to thank On Location (formerly Anthony Travel) for facilitating the hotel accommodations for the visiting teams and Memorial Hermann for their athletic training support throughout the event.

"Through our partnership with The Woodlands Township and the City of Conroe, the club has the necessary resources, guidance and facilities to help make this event a tremendous success," said Simon Boddison, Director of Soccer Operations. "Continuing to host events throughout the year helps us reach three important objectives: providing competitive environments for our players to develop, raising much needed financial revenue for our internal scholarship program and supporting the local community."
