SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes will host the 10th annual Corporate Cup on Saturday, July 20 at Stanton Field on the campus of Santa Clara University.
The 5v5 tournament will take place on small-sided fields with futsal goals and goalkeepers. The tournament will feature both men’s and coed divisions and is limited to 24 teams, with 12 competing in each division. Coed teams must have at least four women on the team and two on the field at all times. Trophies will be awarded to the two championship-winning teams, as well as the leading scorer in each division.
Participation is open to any group capable of constructing a 10-person team and covering the cost of registration. Corporate Cup is perfect for businesses and community organizations, or any groups with a passion for the sport of soccer.
Early-bird registration is $1,800 per team through May 31, before rising to $2,400 on June 1. Earthquakes Season Pass Holders will be given early-bird pricing for as long as spots remain. The price of registration includes t-shirts for all players, a lunch buffet, and 20 tickets to the California Clasico at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, June 29 against the rival LA Galaxy. Participating organizations will also have an opportunity to purchase additional tickets for the Clasico at a discounted rate typically reserved for groups of 100 or more.
The event also serves as a networking opportunity, with many top brands around the Bay Area expected to compete. In recent years, companies such as Amazon, GoPro, eBay, PayPal and KPMG have fielded teams.
With each team that signs up, the Quakes will donate tickets to the Kicks for Kids program, helping underprivileged youth attend an Earthquakes match free of charge.
Early registration is strongly recommended. The first five teams to sign up will also get 10 tickets to the Quakes’ Hall of Fame Day match against the Chicago Fire at Avaya Stadium on Saturday, May 18. To receive more information about the event, please fill out the form here.
