A big THANK YOU to our volunteers who helped run the tournament so smoothly, especially Mark Potter, Kat Krcadinac, Madison Fordyce, Irene Cielen, Riya Johal, and Marwa Rostami!!

2019 Golden Boy Indoor Soccer Tournament kicks off today with record number of 180 teams!

The Winnipeg Youth Association (WYSA) is excited to announce the kickoff of its annual Golden Boy Indoor Soccer Tournament which takes place February 14th to 18th at the WSF Soccer South, WSF Soccer North, and the Axworthy Health & RecPlex indoor facilities.

This year’s Golden Boy Tournament set a new record of participating teams at 180, up 4 from last year’s record of 176. The tournament is made up of under 9 to under 18 boys’ and girls’ teams, across 26 divisions represented by about 2,400 players. There are 36 out-of-town teams representing Manitoba, Ontario, and Saskatchewan for a total of 309 matches over the 5 days! The finals will be held on Monday, February 18th at the WSF Soccer South and WSF Soccer North facilities, 9 AM to 3 PM.

“The response from our local soccer community and those who are willing to travel here for the tournament continues to impress us. There is no question the tournament has become a highlight of the indoor soccer season for many teams,” said WYSA Executive Director, Carlo Bruneau. “Setting a new mark of 180 teams shows the passion for soccer in Winnipeg and is a credit to our community who’ve helped make the tournament so successful over the last 10 years. Whether under 9 or under 18, the matches are very competitive, the intensity level is heightened, and we’re looking forward to some great action over the next 5 days!”

The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association manages the largest year-round youth soccer league in Manitoba. The leagues are comprised of premier and developmental Club teams ages 9 to 18, and, recreational teams through our Community Centres ages 13 to 18. In recent years, WYSA has managed the largest indoor high school soccer league and has played a key role in bringing accessible soccer programming to youth in Winnipeg’s inner city.
