PR Islanders Soccer Blast

Soccer BlastCalling all parents! Do you have a kid who is real soccer-head or soccer-head wannabe? Are you looking for some peace and quiet around the house some weekend? Well El Nuevo Dia and the Puerto Rico Islanders were thinking of you when they put together "Soccer Blast". On June 30th and July 1st, the PR Islanders will offer a tournament for children. The tournament will be held in Estadio Juan Ramón Loubriel in Bayamón. “La fiebre del fútbol ha arropado a Puerto Rico y siendo El Nuevo Día precursor de este movimiento, junto a los Puerto Rico Islanders, nos sentimos sumamente comprometidos con el desarrollo de la disciplina en la Isla a corto y largo plazo”, said Richard Vázquez, Promotions Manager of El Nuevo Día.

The tournament is open to children between the ages of 8 and 18 years old. Five person teams (4 forwards and 1 goalie) will play the tournament on a reduced field, measuring 70’ x 100’. The periods will be 10 minutes long, with a intermission of 3 minutes.

However, if you'd like to participate, you had better hurry. Registration is open only until June 22nd. The registration fee is $110 for a team of up to 7 players. For registration, each team member will receive a jersey, a sports bag, and other commemorative items for the event.

As an additional attraction during the event, players from the Islanders will be on hand to sign autographs and take pictures. In addition, there will be a raffle for the children present at the event.
