On behalf of the Junior Irish Soccer Club, I would like to personally invite your team to apply to play in the 2023 Memorial Day Invitational held in South Bend, Indiana, Friday May 26th, Saturday May 27th, and Sunday May 28th 2023.
This USSF approved tournament has become extremely competitive with some of the strongest club teams from across the Midwest and other parts of the Nation participating. We offer multiple tiers including Regional League divisions, State and local.
This is a 2-day Tournament (with potential for Friday evening games for local teams). All Academy aged teams (U8 U9, and U10) will play 3 games and all U-11 and above teams will play a minimum of 3 games (weather permitting) with championship matches in most divisions being played on Sunday afternoon.
This is a stay to play event and we work closely with the Visit South Bend - Mishawaka office to secure the best and most affordable housing options. The event is played at just two locations (Potential for third in 2023 but same distance as Newton Park to Jr. Irish Soccer Complex) including the first class facility at the Jr. Irish Soccer Complex (located near the South Bend Regional airport) and Newton Park in Lakeville, IN.
We hope that you will decide to spend part of your Memorial Day Weekend in South Bend. We can promise you outstanding competition, first class facilities and the genuine hospitality from the Jr. Irish Soccer Club.
