Kick off the Soccer Season on Alabama's Beaches

The first of many matches this year is just around the corner, so clear your schedule and get ready to see some fancy footwork.

The Alabama Gulf Coast is the ultimate spot for soccer events due to the championship-level fields that are within a very short drive from the white-sand beaches. Ready to kick it up not one, not two, but three notches? We’ve got three soccer events on our 2017 roster happening soon. The Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission team is sure that the exciting upcoming tournaments will be full of skills and thrills for the soccer fanatics who want a front-row seat to all the dribbles, kicks and goals to come!

Boys Soccer

Make it your goal to kick back in the stands at the Orange Beach Sportsplex on February 24 and 25 as you cheer for elite high school girls and boys showcasing their athletic talents at the 2017 Island Cup. This annual premier competition is the first soccer event of the new year and it’s a big one! More than 20 high school varsity female and male teams will vie for the Island Cup soccer title.

The first 2017 Orange Beach Soccer Shootout this year is a two-day event slated for March 4 and 5. Male teams of ages 18 and under will bring some heated competition to the Orange Beach Sportsplex. Come on out and cheer them on as they battle it out on the soccer fields.

Girls Soccer

Next is the girls’ turn to show off when the second 2017 Orange Beach Soccer Shootout plays out on March 11 and 12. The Orange Beach Sportsplex will play host to this fun weekend on the fields for 18-and-under female teams competing until one is crowned the victor in this youth tournament.
