Manitoba’s largest indoor soccer tournament gets underway today in Winnipeg, bringing out a total of 152 teams to compete.
The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is hosting the sixth annual Golden Boy Indoor Soccer Tournament at facilities throughout the city.
Twenty-six teams from out of town have arrived from Brandon, Thunder Bay, Ontario and Yorkton, Saskatchewan to join local teams in the tournament, which runs until next Monday, February 17.
“This tournament has grown to become a highlight of the indoor soccer season for teams from far and wide,” said WYSA executive director Carlo Bruneau. “We have both recreational and competitive divisions represented by about 2,000 players. The tournament has turned into a great showcase of the soccer talent we have here in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario.”
The finals will be held on the last day of the tournament at the WSF Subway Soccer South Complex at the U of M.
