Soccer Central

The MSA were hard at work this summer with a number of events for young players. With the World Cup going on, there was a perfect tie in opportunity with the Prairie Invitational Tournament.

The MSA put together "Soccer Central" to give players and soccer fans alike a unique and fun opportunity to check our and play in some great local soccer, while also watching the best players in the world do their thing.

I spoke with MSA Special Events Coordinator Carlo Bruneau who had this to say on Soccer Central as an event:

Soccer Central was aimed around creating and promoting the World Cup and the MSA Prairie Invitational Tournament which was a scouting event for the Under 13 to Under 16 boys and girls Provincial Teams. The BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan Provincial Teams joined Manitoba for this fantastic opportunity to be scouted by Dave Benning, Canadian U15 Girls Head Coach, Ray Clark, Canadian U15 Boys Head Coach and Sean Fleming, Canadian U17 Boys Head Coach. Due to this incredible opportunity, four new players have been identified for the National Training Center and are in contention for the Under 15 National Teams.

Along with the Prairie Invitational Tournament, the MSA Special Events and Competitions Committee showed the World Cup Semi Finals, 3rd Place and Finals at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex. There were many great prizes provided by Royal Sports, CBC Winnipeg and Visions that were given away at the end of the World Cup Final.
