Covid-19 Tries to Claim Another Event: Surf Cup 2020 Olders Postponed

Covid-19 Tries to Claim Another Event: Surf Cup 2020 Olders Postponed

In this Covid-19 era, the only certainty is uncertainty.

Recently, the NCAA announced that the quiet period for soccer recruiting would be extended through August 2020. College soccer coaches usually plan their summer recruiting around the major West Coast summer tournament for competitive club soccer: SURF CUP.

Proactively responding to COVID-19, Surf Cup Sports had planned for a socially distanced event for 2020. The event would be spread over every weekend in August, kicking off with the olders weekends first. Read more here.

Because of the new NCAA rules, Surf Cup Sports has postponed the olders competition. The event will happen, promises Surf Cup Sports. The dates, however, are still unknown.

2020 Surf Cup OLDERS Tournament Update The cornerstone of our Surf Cup Olders tournament has always been providing the nation's best connection between college coaches and the top college recruits. Given the NCAA announcement yesterday to extend the recruiting dark period through August, we feel it is best to pause and give ourselves a few days to think through our path forward. Surf Cup will happen in 2020, but we're going to take a few days to talk to our most important customers – college coaches and college recruits – to understand how to best serve their needs in 2020. We will communicate our go-forward plan no later than Tuesday at noon PST. This decision does not impact Surf Cup Younger Tournament events on August 15 – 16 and August 22 – 23, they will still be played on those dates. Thank you, Surf Cup
