Midnight Sun Blast Cup Soccer Tournament starts tomorrow

FAIRBANKS, AK-The soccer community in Fairbanks is one of the largest in the Golden Heart City and it will be on display hopefully this weekend. If the smoke stays away The Midnight Sun Blast Cup Soccer Tournament will have games tomorrow at 5:30 at the FYSA Soccer Complex.

This year there will be an adult 11 on 11 tournament and 3 on 3 tournament for kids all the way up to 19 years old. The tournament gets 30 to 70 teams per year. The Blast Cup Tournament runs all weekend.

Tournament director Linda Burke tells us that it's more to this than just a competitive tournament.

"It's fun. We have fun activities in between so they get a break. We have a BBQ on Saturday. And we'll have a dunking booth and a kicking booth and some fun activities for everybody. But you know, the tournaments are fun when you come out," Burke said. "You see everyone cheering and clapping and the smiles on the faces and that's what it's all about."
