ADIDAS Germantown Invitational Tournament

Dear Referee,

The 37th annual Germantown Invitational Tournament will take place on November 12-13 and November 19-20, 2016 at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex in Memphis, Tennessee. This Complex hosted the 2001 Region III USYSA Tournament, Conference USA Tournament and is the home of 16 lighted, manicured FIFA regulation size soccer fields, in addition to a 3000 seat soccer-only stadium. PDL Memphis Express and W-League Memphis Mercury have used the MRSC Stadium as their home venue for USL matches and WUSA and MLS have both staged exhibition events in the stadium.

Each weekend will feature over 150 teams from across the country. Due to the increasingly competitive nature of the tournament, we are recruiting and inviting the best referees possible. For referees coming from out of town, two nights lodging (Friday and Saturday) will be provided. . Game fees are: U9-U12: $30   U13 –U14 $30/$20/$20. Referees interested in receiving a travel stipend must contact and make arrangements with Mark Herrington prior to November 1, 2016 in order to qualify for any travel stipend. Referees receiving travel stipend and/or lodging will be expected to carpool where possible and be available to referee for the entire tournament; this includes semi-final and final games on Sunday.
