Businesses Can Score a Winning Goal for Community at Second Annual Orange County United Way Corporate Soccer Cup
Friday, January 31, 2020
Orange County United Way will host its 2nd Annual Corporate Soccer Cup, a recreational-style soccer tournament for a good cause. The tournament will take place at the Orange County Great Park Soccer Complex in Irvine, June 11 - 13. Companies and organizations are invited to register a team or become an event sponsor.
The tournament, presented by CISOSHARE and in partnership with Orange County Soccer Club (OCSC), will raise money to support Orange County United Way’s initiatives to reduce childhood obesity in our community.
In Orange County, one in three children is overweight or obese. At $2,500 per team and with a variety of sponsorship levels available, the United Way Corporate Soccer Cup will raise critical funds to provide fitness and nutrition opportunities for students and their families in high-need Orange County neighborhoods.
The round-robin, 32-team, co-ed tournament is open to all Orange County businesses as a way to demonstrate corporate social responsibility, engage with their employees by cheering on fellow coworkers, and do more for the community.
Teams are made up of 20-22 players, can be co-ed, and may exercise open substitutions.
Teams are eligible for the following:
- Pre-tournament training session with an OCSC player.
- Guaranteed participation in a minimum of three games during the tournament.
- Each player will receive a commemorative tournament t-shirt and two tickets for an OCSC pro-game.
Additionally, companies will be recognized on the stadium video board and roster card during the OCSC pro-game, as well as on the OCSC website listing with link. Team captains will be recognized on the field prior to the OCSC pro-game.
The Corporate Soccer Cup final will be played in the Championship Soccer Stadium at the Orange County Great Park following the pro-game.
For companies that want to get involved, but don’t want to get on the field, there are numerous sponsorship opportunities that allow them to have front-and-center event publicity.
Last year, the inaugural Corporate Soccer Cup sold out with 16 corporate teams featuring those from Greater Irvine Chamber member companies: Antis Roofing & Waterproofing, Bank of America, Edwards Lifesciences, and FivePoint, as well as CISOSHARE, Eaton Aerospace, Experian, Hilton Anaheim, KCOMM, L3 Technologies, NAIOP, Pacific Life, Synoptek, Union Bank, and Ware Malcomb.
