Washington, D.C. has become one of the last major cities in the country to enter Phase 3 and begin to lift its COVID-19 restrictions, leaving eager youth soccer players in the city and across the region with excitement for a full return to the field with games. All of the wait may soon come to an end as the city is prepared to lift its COVID-19 restrictions and allow sporting events to begin taking place in the city once again.
It has been a little over a year when the world abruptly shutdown due to COVID-19. Within a short period of time, governments began to adapt to life with COVID-19 and started to combat the fight against the disease. Now with several vaccinations on the market, the Nation’s Capital has begun to take the necessary steps for sporting events to take place once more and we are excited to welcome back the D.C. Cup after a one year hiatus.
According to Tournament Administrator Justin Reid, “COVID-19 set many of us back in the world of sporting events, but we are happy that we can now see a bit of normalcy ahead of us. Although we will not be welcoming international teams this year due to the travel and quarantine restrictions of many of the countries that committed to the invite, we are excited to have a great tournament and to welcome teams from across the region to attend. Teams as far south as Atlanta and as far north as Boston, will be making their way down to DC this summer, and we are excited to showcase our great city, event, and to provide elite level competition.”
