TBAYS is proud to announce the 2018 Autumn Classic, Sept 22-23. Teams will compete from all across the Midwest and Canada. The majority of games will be played at the fantastic 23 field site of the Keystone Soccer Complex, with an additional three beautiful 11v11 fields at the nearby Coastguard fields. Only local teams will play Friday night games, unless otherwise requested.
This tournament provides an excellent fall event with quality competition, venue and stress free check-in at the TBAYS office. The tournament is sanctioned by MSYSA and US Soccer. Experience the great atmosphere of downtown Traverse City and the idyllic northern Michigan beaches in between games.
Like our spring tournament, the Cherry Capital Cup, we will fill up quickly, so apply early!! Due to the success of both of these tournaments, we have had a lot of early club interest in this years event. We expect to fill up again this fall.
Looking forward to seeing you up north in Traverse City this Fall!
Team acceptance to the Autumn Classic will be completed by the "Selection Committee". Notifications are sent to all teams. The selection process is assisted by the information provided to the tournament on your application- example - team records, level of play, out of town/state vs local teams (to achieve a balance), performance in other tournaments including the "Cherry Capital Cup", etc. It is important to provide as much information as possible to assist the committee in properly evaluating your team. Cashing of the entry fee does not indicate acceptance to the tournament. No teams will be accepted until after the deadline.
The 2018 Autumn Classic is not a Stay to play tournament, you are free to secure your own housing. Teams must be registered with the tournament and have their TeamID before they book rooms at the hotels.
