“Legends FC Santa Clarita Valley is thrilled to bring such a prestigious tournament to the city of Santa Clarita,” said manager Adam Waddell. “These young athletes have weathered two years of pandemic, multiple upheavals, numerous traveling games, early mornings and late nights, all to show up for what they love – football.”

The event is expected to be a premier youth soccer tournament experience for boys and girls, including balanced competition and world-class facilities in Santa Clarita City Central Park. Legends SCV has partnered with Six Flags Magic Mountain to provide all attending teams, staff, players and family members with discounted theme park tickets for the weekend of the event.

“Santa Clarita is thrilled to host what is probably our greatest soccer tournament ever,” said Santa Clarita City Council Member Cameron Smyth. “As well as showing off our great athlete facilities, we know it will also boost the economy of our local businesses.”
