It's been seven years since our area has seen the large draw that comes to the U.S. Youth Soccer Midwest Regional Championships.
This summer's largest sports tournament returns to Rockford. Our community was chosen due to the facilities at Sportscore I and Sportscore II. More than 4,200 youth soccer players are using fields. There are expected to be about 10,000 visitors which brings not only people but profit.
The tournament brings the most profit in over the weekend and tapers off by Wednesday.
