PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO IS CONSIDERED TO BE A TOP TEN FAMILY RESORT DESTINATION WITH A MODERN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT LOCATED WITHIN TEN MINUTES OF THE RESORTS.  P.V. HAS MORE THAN 20,000 HOTEL ROOMS AND BLUE FLAG (6 FLAG) BEACHES SURROUNDED BY CLEAR AND WARM PACIFIC WATERS.  P.V. HOSTS ONE OF THE TOP ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL GAME FISHING TOURNAMENTS ON THE PACIFIC COAST AND TWO PGA GOLF TOURNAMENTS AT ONE OF THE FIVE CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF COURSES WITHIN 20 MINUTES.

 

THROUGHOUT MEXICO SOCCER IS CONSIDERED TO BE NOT JUST A NATIONAL PASTIME BUT A PART OF THEIR CULTURE.  WHEN WE WERE CONSIDERING P.V. AS A SITE WE MET WITH THE TOURISM COUNCIL AND INDIVIDUAL OWNERS OF THE SOCCER FIELDS AND IMMEDIATELY KNEW THAT THIS WAS THE RIGHT LOCATION FOR THIS TOURNAMENT.  ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WE MET WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL AND 70% OF THE POPULATION SPEAKS ENGLISH.

 

ALL THE FIELDS ARE NATURAL GRASS AND MEET PROPER SIZE SPECIFICATIONS.  ONE COMPLEX WITH 5 FIELDS IS LESS THAN 2 YEARS OLD, ANOTHER FIELD IS LOCATED NEAR THEM AT A UNIVERSITY AND TWO MORE FIELDS ARE LOCATED ABOUT A MILE FROM THAT COMPLEX AND IS OWNED BY A RETIRED PROFESSIONAL PLAYER THAT NORMALLY USES HIS FIELDS TO TRAIN HIS OWN TEAMS.  WE WILL BE USING TWO MORE FIELDS AT WHAT IS COMMONLY CALLED THE STADIUM WHICH IS LOCATED AT THE LARGEST SPORTS PARK IN P.V. AND ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE SHERATON RESORT.

 

THE STRUCTURE OF THE TOURNAMENT WAS DESIGNED SO THAT PARTICIPANTS CAN PLAY AT LEAST FIVE GAMES AND AS MANY AS NINE WHILE ALSO ENJOYING THE RESORT AND THE CITY.  ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY EACH TEAM WILL PLAY 2 40 MINUTE GAMES ON EACH DAY FOR SEEDING PURPOSES.  THE NUMBER ONE TEAM COMING OUT OF THIS WILL HAVE A BUY FOR THE FIRST ROUND OF ELIMINATION PLAY.  AFTER SEEDING A SINGLE ELIMINATION LEVEL OF PLAY WILL START ON WEDNESDAY THRU FRIDAY WITH THE SEMI’S AND FINALS ALL OCCURRING ON FRIDAY.  WE WORK VERY HARD TO ALLOW FOR AT LEAST 2 HOURS OFF BETWEEN GAMES; AS WE GET INTO ELIMINATION THIS MAY BE UNAVOIDABLE IF WE EXPERIENCE RAIN.

 

FIFTEEN DOLLARS OF THE EIGHTY DOLLAR PLAYER REGISTRATION FEE FROM EVERY PLAYER WILL GO INTO A PRIZE POOL OF WHICH 50% WILL GO TO THE FIRST PLACE TEAM AND 25% WILL GO TO THE SECOND PLACE TEAM.  THE TOP GOALIE WILL RECEIVE 12.5% AND THE TOURNAMENT M.V.P. WILL RECEIVE 12.5%.  THE FIRST AND SECOND PLACE TEAMS WILL ALSO RECEIVE A TEAM FEE WAIVER FOR THE 2024 NORTH AMERICA’S CUP.

ALL PARTICIPANTS THAT HAVE THEIR RESORT FEES PAID IN FULL BY JUNE 10TH WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE ENTERED INTO A RAFFLE FOR A FREE SUITE UPGRADE FOR THE WEEK.

 

ALL TEAMS THAT HAVE AT LEAST 14 ROSTERED PLAYERS AND FULLY PAID THERE RESORT FEES BY JUNE 10TH WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE ENTERED INTO A RAFFLE FOR A ONE NIGHT FULLY OPEN BAR (2 HOURS) FOR YOUR TEAM AT A SELECT RESORT LOCATION OF YOUR CHOICE AND ON A NIGHT OF YOUR CHOICE.
