Approximately 18,000 people play with the Soccer Resort every year, including celebrities such as the retired English Professional stars of the 1990's like George Weah,  Ian Rush, Jan Molby, Bruce Grobbelaar, Mark Walters, Clayton Blackmore, as well as stars like Anthony LaPaglia, Steve Jones, and more!

Teams have joined us from the United States, Canada, Turks and Caicos, Puerto Rico, Norway, Sweden, Demark, England, Scotland, Ireland, and Japan

Our adult soccer travel weekends are for amateur adult soccer teams - with  divisions for Open, Over 30, Over 40 and Masters (Men's, Women's and Coed soccer tournaments). We've been around since 2002, and you can be sure, if we didn't know how to show people a good time, we wouldn't still be here!

We are called the Soccer Resort, because we put a high emphasis on great hotels, and excellent quality soccer fields. Now, many of our locations are either luscious Bermuda grass or state of the art, high expense, field turf. Soccer Resort winning teams and runners-up get $1000's of discounts and credits to make your future travel trips with The Soccer Resort even cheaper!

Soccer Resort has an excellent reputation for well organized events, and fun-packed weekends - with competitive and recreational divisions for men's, women's and coed soccer.
