Barefoot Soccer Blasts onto the Beaches at 10th Annual Beach Blast Soccer Tournament

Morey’s Piers Sponsors Cape Express Soccer Club Tournaments June 24-26

The Cape Express Beach Blast Soccer Tournament returns to Morey’s Piers and the surrounding Wildwood beaches for its 10th year on Friday, June 22 through Sunday, June 24.

The Beach Blast tournament will include divisions for 8- to 17-year-old boys and girls as well as men, women and co-ed opens and divisions for players over 30 and 40 years old. The barefoot, round robin beach soccer tournament attracts nearly 1,000 teams to the Wildwoods.

“Over the last decade, Beach Blast has become a tradition for Morey’s Piers and the Wildwoods,”  said Justin Vitti, Group Programs Representative. “We look forward to sponsoring this event year after year and providing participants with a truly unique competition.”

All games will be played on one of many 30 by 40 yard fields set up on the beach. Teams will each play three games consisting of three 12-minute periods with contests starting on the hour (weather and other unforeseen conditions permitting). Teams advancing to the finals will play in a fourth game for their division championship.

Morey’s Piers hosts several youth events in the Wildwoods including Beach Scouting, Beach Lacrosse, Beach Soccer, Dance Expo, A Closer Walk Christian Youth Event, and new this year, the Wild Half, a half marathon. Beyond event registration revenues, the Beach Blast soccer event generates an additional $4,000,000 into the surrounding business community.

Due to the popularity of this event and anticipated turnout, event coordinators have scheduled a second event, MORE Beach Blast, for Friday, July 13 through Sunday, July 15. For questions regarding the tournament, visit www.CapeExpress.com or email beachblastsoccer@comcast.net.
