This past Saturday NEYSO Liberty SC hosted it's World Cup Festival at the Scorpions stadium!! The World Cup themed event took place prior to the Scorpions game vs the Carolina Railhawks with over 550 players and families attending from our recreation, academy, and competitive programs.
"It was truly amazing to see how much fun everyone had and to see our whole family together. To see players and families from all of our programs enjoying the day was special," said Jon Burklo, Director of Soccer Operations.
The main event of the day was the World Cup 3v3 tournament played on the Scorpions game field. Teams were assigned World Cup countries and asked to design their own jerseys. The tournament was kicked off by a World Cup Parade as each team took center stage in front of their families and friends.
The fun didn't stop there either, as there was plenty taking place in the Fan Fiesta Area including a DJ, Dunk Tank, Bounce Houses, and Skill Challenges hosted by The Soccer Factory.
The evening finished as we cheered on the Scorpions to a 3-0 victory over the visiting Carolina Railhawks.
"Events like these are just 1 of the many things I think separates us. We are 1 family and this was a fantastic way to conclude our spring season! We would like to express our thanks to the Scorpions for hosting us, Soccer Factory, Puma and everyone that attended and made this event special!" concluded Jon.
