AYSO United AZ Cup Presented by Superstition Springs Lexus is partnering with Elite Sports and Keeper Wars Ink.
AYSO United Arizona is excited to announce our partnership with Keeper Wars Ink for the 2023 AYSO United Arizona Cup Presented by Superstition Springs Lexus at the Legacy Sports Complex from September 29 – Oct 1st.
During our tournament weekend, Keeper Wars Ink, will be hosting their own National City Tour Event and providing discounts to tournament participant goalkeepers who want to challenge their skills against other top keepers in the region.
What will make these two events even more exciting is our collaboration with Keeper Wars Ink, to settle all ties out of Group Play. Traditionally teams advance based on overall points, including ties. However, 11 v 11 matches ending in a draw will now be decided in a Keeper Wars Match. The folks at Keeper Wars will manage a field completely dedicated to deciding the final winner of each match ending in a tie during regulation play. Allowing two players to decide the final outcome in a mano-a-mano competition will generate a higher level of excitement to determine a winner.
“We believe our relationship with Keeper Wars Ink and the great people at Elite Sports, at Legacy, will make this tournament the go-to tournament of the Fall, in the East Valley.”
Ed Alameda, AYSO United Director of Coaching
“It was very exciting to not only be invited to run our Keeper Wars event alongside the AYSO United Arizona Cup but when the idea was presented by Ed and David to use a Keeper Wars match as a tie-breaker for the team’s in the AYSO Cup, it took our excitement to the next level! We look forward to seeing how the teams respond to this challenge! It certainly gives the keepers (or field players) the opportunity to have a bit more control over their teams’ destiny than simply blocking PK’s.”
Tonya Pinkerton, Keeper Wars Ink Co-Founder & President
