How Did They Do That?!
Our tournament staff is going to take a standard grass soccer field and transform it into a sand soccer paradise!
To do this we will bring in over 300 tons of sand per field to create beach quality fields for our participants to play on.
When we are done we will have created a soccer experience never before seen in Kansas City!
