May 20, 2009 10:00 PM
 
Over 600 kids to take field in Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup
 
FRISCO, Texas (May 21, 2009) – Kansas City, Mo., will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer tournament in the United States, at the Raytown Soccer Club, May 30-31.  The Raytown Soccer Club Under-7 through Under-16 Boys and Girl Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together numerous teams on 13 soccer fields for the second annual soccer tournament held in Kansas City, Mo.
 
Kohl's American Cup offers youth soccer players an opportunity to play in a high-quality tournament in a fun, family-like atmosphere.  The program was started in 2000 as an avenue to highlight recreational soccer players and promote fair play.  Players receive equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play, with an emphasis on participation, rather than competition.

Birds Eye® Voila! ® is partnering with the Kohl's American Cup to give a little cushion to our soccer moms. 25 stadium seats will be given away at 12 Kohl's American Cup events courtesy of Voila!. All winners must be 18 years or older and present at the event to claim the prize. Birds Eye Voila!, found in your grocers freezer aisle. 

The Kohl's American Soccer Experience Vehicle will add even more excitement to the Raytown Soccer Club Kohl's American Cup. The Soccer Experience Vehicle comes complete with three larger-than-life inflatable soccer games and numerous prizes and souvenirs for participants and their families. In 2008, Soccer Experience Vehicles 1 and 2 covered over 38,000 miles.
This event is one of over 70 Kohl's American Cup tournaments being held from February to December.  All tournaments are open to players registered with a US Youth Soccer State Association recreational league.
 
Admission to Kohl's American Cup is free.
