Welcome to the 18th Annual Veterans Cup Competition
Dear Participants and Fans:
On behalf of the United States Adult Soccer Association Veterans Cup Committee, I would like to welcome you to Hampton Road Soccer Complex in Virginia Beach for the 2015 National Veterans Cup competition. This is the 18th anniversary since the founding of the Veterans Cup, which began with nine teams in 1998 and has grown significantly over the years to include both national and international teams.
The Veterans Cup committee would like to extend special thanks to Metropolitan D.C.-Virginia Soccer Association, USASA, the City of Virginia Beach and all of the volunteers from Virginia for their hard work with hosting the National Veterans Cup. We know you will enjoy the soccer facility, amenities, beaches and meeting all your friends from all over the country. Please make sure to review our program and our new mobile app as we will provide everything you need to know about this tournament and the area. It includes a general activity schedule and other key information to answer your questions.
Personally, I want to thank the USASA committee members John Motta, Duncan Riddle, Don Kannapel, Keith Renner, Lisa Bliskis and the entire USASA staff. Don’t forget to thank the local state association, led by Chris Tierney, Jessie Kratz and MaryBeth Falk. Please make sure to show your gratitude as they put in countless of hours to make this event successful!
We look forward to spending time with you throughout the week and hope to connect with as many of you as we can. If we can do anything to make your stay more pleasant, please let us know.
Finally, best wishes to all of the teams. Win, lose or draw the Veterans Cup is a celebration of the beautiful game and the spirit of friendly competition. The Veterans Cup truly fulfills the motto of USASA, “soccer your game for life.”
I look forward to visiting with all of you during this year’s event.
