With the weather cooling off as winter approaches, Bethlehem Steel FC has announced that this offseason the club will host The Steel Cup, an indoor 7v7 tournament that will span in a pair of locations starting in 2018.
The tournament will be held at two separate locations with teams looking to hoist the inaugural cup needing to compete in both events. The quest for the Steel Cup will begin on February 10, at the Lou Ramos Center on February 10. The Steel Cup will be decided on March 10, when the final matches are held at GAME TIME Fieldhouse in Breiningsville.
Each team that enters the tournament will receive 10 tickets to Bethlehem Steel FC’s 2018 home opener. Along with the 2018 tickets, Steel FC will donate $50 for every team at each site throughout the tournament to a participating charity in that team’s name. Teams entering the overall tournament will be guaranteed six games throughout the tournament.
In order to be eligible for the Steel Cup, teams must appear in both locations. Teams that can’t make all the two dates are still welcome to join the tournament and will receive 10 tickets to the club’s home opener along with Steel FC donating in their name.
During the club’s home opener, each age group winner will be honored their Steel Cup at halftime.
