Get your Scrooge on at the Holiday Cup

A new sponsor heads up the 21st annual Holiday Cup Soccer Tournament at the Wells Fargo Dimond Park Fieldhouse, but the action is still the same fast paced, competitive spirit on the pitch as 425 athletes spread out over 31 teams are in the hunt for championship trophies.


“Things are off to a great start,” organizing sponsor Marty McKeown of Re/Max of Juneau said.

The tournament runs daily through Dec. 31, with Christmas Eve and Christmas off. Games started Saturday.

Teams are divided into six divisions: Elementary, Middle School, High School, Senior/College and Masters.

Round robin play continues through Saturday, Dec. 28, with Playoffs starting Sunday. Championships are on New Year’s Eve.

Games are free to watch and fans can line one half of the pitch and the entire overhead balcony of the field house.

“A couple of new things we added this year are a contest for kids to design the famous Holiday Cup sweatshirt design,” McKeown said. “It is a fundraiser for the JDHS girls high school soccer program.”

Bekka Ord was the artist/soccer player that won the contest and was presented with an Adidas soccer ball and a $100 gift certificate to Eurosport.

The website shows scores and standings shortly after each game, a new feature McKeown pushed.
