In 2017 Georgia Soccer agreed to license the Publix Atlanta Cup to local teams. Upon several bids GYSA chose a combined bid from Smyrna SC, TYSA, Lanier Sharks and AFC Lightning.
The 2018 Edition of The Publix Atlanta Cup brought together four soccer clubs in Georgia who will look to build on the traditions of the Publix Atlanta Cup and return it to its full glory as one of the top tournaments in the county. Our goal is to eventually get the tournament back up to a 600 – 800 team event. Each location will be registering a large number of teams who will be participating in the event, will bring reciprical agreements, have fantastic facilities and over 50+ combined years experience of running tournaments of their own. We are excited to become partners with GA Soccer in hosting the Publix Atlanta Cup.
NEW PUBLIX ATLANTA CUP CHAMPIONSHIP DIVISION
Upon registration teams have the ability to choose to participate in the PUBLIX ATLANTA CUP Championship (recommended for Classic I, RPL and ECNL Teams). Upon selection for this event teams will participate in their local NSEW Regional Tournament as normal. Winners of the NSEW Regional Tournament will progress to the PUBLIX ATLANTA CUP Championship.
On top of the Championship Division teams can chose to participate in our REGIONAL DIVISIONS; Piedmont, Peachtree, or Centenial Divisions. These Divisions will only be available Regionally and will end on Sunday afternoon.
We are coaches too. We understand the past issues with coaching conflicts. With our NEW Regional Divisions we guarantee coaches will be able to register two teams (same location) and they will be able to make all their group games. We will even try to schedule games so that predicted Semi Finals and Final Times don't conflict.
** We may even make it work for three teams but please contact staff before doing so. **
Main hotel to host Players Party, daily events and competitions.
MORE THAN A TOURNAMENT IT IS A FUNDRAISER!
The Publix Atlanta Cup can help your club as a fundraiser. This is how it works:
1) Available for the first 20 clubs only
2) Register a minimun of 10 teams by May 31st and we will give you $100 per team
For Example: XYZ Club register 15 teams by May 20th. Therefore, 15 (teams) X $100=$1500
After the tournament is over, clubs that meet this criteria will receive a check.
