Soccer Invades Eau Claire

Now in its eleventh year, the United Soccer Tournament draws close to 100 soccer teams from all over Wisconsin and the Minnesota Twin Cities area. Players compete in age groups ranging from 9-19 years.
This Year, the Tournament is expected to draw 1500 athletes over the course of three days, and officials hope to generate close to 1 million dollars in revenue.
As the team-turnout continues to increase, tournament planners say it's a good indicator that soccer is thriving here in the Chippewa Valley.
