The weekend’s festivities will occur throughout Mana Wynwood in Miami. The kickoff event will last from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Veza Sur Brewery, which will feature a panel discussion of media, musicians and athletes sharing their personal stories to help inspire local youth.

“What started as simply a friendly soccer competition has exploded into a dynamic, culturally diverse experience,” says Reese Whitely, an amateur soccer player, former collegiate athlete and physical therapist who founded the event. “We’re seeing teams register from California to Boston, along with a number of former World Cup athletes and even a former Olympian. It’s a showcase of culture, and we’re very excited about this year’s level of competition. It’s going to be a mind-blowing weekend, no doubt.”

The soccer competition lasts from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 31 and Aug. 1 with concerts, expert discussions, cultural experiences, interactive demonstrations from sports technology companies, food trucks, and tasting stations available at the Soccercito Athlete Village & Lounge. Tickets for the events range from $10 per person to $125 per person for a VIP experience.

Magic City Cup also partnered with Tech Hub South Florida to host several hands-on, interactive exhibits from sports-tech startups to help local businesses present their products to the community and local industry leaders.
