LA Galaxy San Diego hosted their 7th Premier Cup this weekend and by all accounts it was a big success. With the recent inclement weather, other tournaments were scrambling for playable fields and canceling games but our Premier Cup ran like clockwork, mainly due to our excellent array of local turf fields.

Not only was the Premier Cup a success facilities wise, but our Carlsbad teams also performed very admirably, with a total of fourteen of our teams making the finals out of a possible twenty two brackets. In total, we had eight teams crowned as outright champions.

LAGSD Boys Director, Glenn Malone, commented, “After such a wet, wet week of weather, the Premier Cup was a perfect opportunity for many teams to get out in the fresh air and play soccer on our top quality turf fields. For Carlsbad United F.C. there were many success stories and the weekend proved the perfect tool to help get the teams ready for their upcoming state cup runs.”

Director of Soccer Operations, Michael Duggan, also contributed to the praise, “I though the Premier Cup had it all; great fields, great refs, great teams and above all, a great level of soccer on show. Our Carlsbad teams really excelled on their home turf and some teams closed off their season with epic victories and performances! As per usual, we would like to thank our wonderful volunteers. Without them, their would be no Premier Cup!”
