Rocky Mountain Adult Soccer Tournament

The 2019 Rocky Mountain Adult Soccer Tournament will take place July 27 – 28 with four divisions: O40 men, O48 men, Open (18+) men, and adult (18+) co-ed. Here is why you should participate:

  • The focus is as much on fun as on quality soccer, with a beer exchange and food truck at the fields, all games taking place at the same 11-field complex, and a Friday evening welcome party
  • The Men’s Open and Co-Ed divisions will have both Competitive and Recreational brackets so you will be playing against appropriate competition
  • The fields are outstanding at the Pleasant View Soccer Complex – some of the best you will play all year
  • Each team is guaranteed four 60-minute games over Saturday and Sunday, so there is no need to book Monday departures in hopes of making it to final rounds
  • Colorado is a fantastic vacation destination and you can lengthen your stay to spend time in the Rocky Mountains
  • Space is limited so you will actually be able to meet and get to know players from other teams around the country
  • Our host hotel is located right on Boulder Creek and a short distance from Boulder’s downtown walking district
  • Boulder is an easy 45 minutes from Denver International Airport, so there are great connections from anywhere in the country
  • When asked how RMAST compares to other tournaments, 67% of participants said “better”, 33% said “the same”, and 0% said “worse”

Registration is first come, first served. Or get on our email list for updates of the tournament.

Fields

The Pleasant View Fields Sports Complex is the primary outdoor soccer facility for the city of Boulder, Colorado. The fields are truly outstanding.

If you have ever played in a tournament where you were assigned a dirt, rocky, or undersized field, you know it can ruin the fun. In our augural tournament in 2017, participants gave the fields a rating of 4.83 on our five-point scale where five equals “outstanding”.

The facility contains eleven grass fields used from March through October, sparing the fields the tough winter conditions in Colorado. The sand base creates excellent drainage for when it does rain in Boulder.

The complex was awarded the 2015 National Sports Turf Managers Association sporting grounds field of the year and the Championship Field (field #1) was awarded the 2015 Colorado Sports Turf Managers Association – Rocky Mountain “Sports Field of the Year”.

There is not a bad field to be drawn.

Fun

The Rocky Mountain Adult Soccer Tournament is as much about having fun as it is about playing quality soccer. Here are a few aspects we add to the weekend:

  • We will have a pre-tournament party at Gravity Brewing in Louisville on Friday evening, allowing teams to get together and meet other players.
  • On Saturday we will have a food truck at the fields. Cuban Fusion will be selling eats based on owner Lisa Angelo’s unique worldview, Greek background, and love of Cuban food.
  • We will have a Beer Share event in which teams are encouraged to bring and share canned beer from their home town after their final game on Saturday. This is a great way to meet fellow players and foster a feeling of community.

The tournament location itself is a major attraction. Boulder, Colorado is consistently voted one of the nicest, most livable small cities in the United States. The city of 100,000 people is known for housing the state’s flagship university (University of Colorado at Boulder), having a vibrant high-tech based economy, and being home to the downtown Pearl Street Mall, full of shops, restaurants, and nightlife. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder draws all sorts of visitors and residents interested in the outdoors.

Boulder is also home to dozens of outstanding restaurants, 40 breweries in the county, and 21 marijuana retailers.

Hotels

We have negotiated deals with three local hotels out of the many from which you can choose in Boulder. We highly recommend you consider staying in Boulder overnight, even if you are coming from as close as Denver or Fort Collins. It makes the tournament weekend much more fun!

Our three hotels are as follows. We will be providing booking codes shortly.

The Millennium Harvest House Hotel is nicely located on Boulder Creek with a beautiful back lawn. It is only a mile from Pearl Street Mall in central Boulder. The rooms are hit and miss as not all have been recently updated but our $129 price is almost unheard of for Boulder in the summer.

The Holiday Inn Express is in North Boulder, one of the hipper neighborhoods of the city with good restaurants and bars (plus a brewery and winery) within walking distance. It is also only five minutes from the fields and you can take a fast Uber to central Boulder. Our negotiated rate is $159, which includes breakfast.

Hampton Inn & Suites NorthThe is also only five minutes from the fields but north, in the direction of Longmont and away from Boulder.  But breakfast is included, the rooms are good, and there is an indoor pool, all of which helped to make this the #3 hotel in Boulder on TripAdvisor.  Our rate is $189.
