Mississippi Fire Spring Classic 2014
4-6-14 5:20am - TOURNAMENT CANCELED FOR SUNDAY
Due to the projected weather forecast and the amount of rain that we have received overnight, we have no option but to cancel the remainder of the tournament. Many fields will become unplayable as well as unsafe. With only two rounds of games complete, we will be unable to determine champions or finalists. Have a safe trip back home and good luck to all teams on the remainder of their seasons.
4-4-14 10:50pm -
The address for Center City Park in Pearl is 1080 Center City Dr Pearl, MS 39208. You will drive past a city park, some baseball fields, a track, a golf course and then you will come to the soccer fields.
If your team is scheduled for 8v8 play at Center City, please review your schedule since some field numbers had to be changed in past few hours. A few fields didn't drain as well as we had believed they would, so we have changed some field numbers to the backup fields we had ready to go. Please check your schedule for the new field number. They will have signs up as well to help guide you where to go as well. No 8:00 am games are changed.
04-4-14 12:50pm - The tournament is on as scheduled. We did take into account the potential forecast when initially making schedules. If we happen to lose individual fields, we have backups in place for those fields already and have all week. If you play at the JFC complex, please carpool when possible since there is a potential we will lose some parking in one of the grass lots.
4-2-14 11:00pm The U14 girls schedules have changed. They are now separated back into gold and silver divisions. The U17-U18 girls division had a team drop, schedules are revised with the new team added. Some games in the U13 girls silver division have had time and field changes due to coaching conflicts.
