Schedule | Accepted Teams | College Coaches

A total of 492 teams from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom will compete in one of New York City’s premier youth soccer events, the Manhattan Kickoff Classic Driven by Yokohama, from March 1-3, 2019. The schedule for both the boys and girls brackets has been released.

The boys’ side will feature 306 teams from Canada, the United Kingdom, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island and the host state of New York. On the girls’ side, 186 teams representing clubs from Canada, Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

Age groups range from U13-U19. Manhattan Soccer Club’s flagship tournament features teams from many of the top youth leagues in the country, including the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), US Youth Soccer National League, Elite Development Program (EDP) and US Club Soccer National Premier Leagues (NPL).

Over 150 college coaches attend the event annually, from NCAA Divisions I, II and III, as well as NAIA, and the junior college and community college ranks.

Games will be played on over 100 all-turf fields throughout New York City, highlighted by 11 fields at the scenic Randall’s Island Park.

They can't as they rely on too many high school fields, which aren't available after this weekend due to spring sports starting up.

Yes, the tournament is on, however, it is an invitational only tournament this year. The club no longer wants to disappoint the hundreds of teams that sign up for this tournament and then have to cancel because of the weather, so this year it’s invitational only and my understanding is it will only be about 100 teams.

Typical parents responses about this tournament. I have never heard any of the players complain. They just want to play soccer. To those parents crying just send your kid with someone else or just sit in your car. This is soccer, it’s an outdoors sport. Get over yourself.

Yes it’s an outdoor sport. But not a sport that should be played in 30 degree weather. Yes the kids do complain. It’s hard for them to play when they are freezing. Get over yourself !! This tournament is and always was a money grab , most of the time they cancel because the fields are not playable. Yes the kids want to play but there are options for the teams playing in the winter. Wake up man ! Injuries can happen due to cold , college coaches won’t be there. And if the weather cooperates with no snow the fields will still be frozen and not safe. Add the winter wind and playing on the water and this event just don’t make sense. Let me see you go out there in shorts with no hat on and play. For that I will get out of my car.

You are flat out wrong. Soccer is played all over Europe at this time of the year, i agree there is a point where its not optimum conditions and in those cases its been cancelled. Its importance has dropped over the years but when it originated it was a very important tournament. My kid plays college soccer and played many games in cold weather, also played NCAA tournament games in late November in Rochester NY and another in Northern Ohio. Both games and venues received snow in days before the matches. Both games were played with temperatures in the 20’s, believe it or not, everyone survived. As a college showcase its perfectly fine, keep the younger ones out of it. And you, please stay home.
Btw, how do you feel about summer matches when its brutally hot? Maybe soccer should ne limited to 4 months per year, September,October, April and May.

Of course soccer is played at this time of the year. The above parent has a personal agenda by referring this tournament to a “money grab”. At least be original. If my kid has no problem playing in March in 30 degree weather than I will be there to support them. End of story. Parents whine and complain because of how the conditions effect them. Don’t go, your kid probably doesn’t want you there and hear and watch you complain. With the cold months of January & February the kids look forward to playing outdoors.

So On this event. My son’s team is going. Yes it will be cold. But he wants to play so we go. He will dress accordingly and he will play his 90 Minute game and get back in the car. I hope for decent weather and field conditions. This should be a good event, a good amount of college coaches from the area. I will say to be prepared, warm sports gear , extra socks and cleats for possible wet conditions, gloves and hat for warm up. Kids are tough, it’s the parents who complain. But this is what we do for them so let’s go.

I have to admit that after 3 months of indoor small field/futsal, the kids really look forward to playing outdoor, even if it's freezing cold. The only complaint I've ever heard from my kids in previous years was when it was canceled. They seem to think the grown-ups were the soft ones.
