Frequently Asked Questions About the Tournament

Where do I go to register?

From the home page, click the red button in the top left corner that reads "REGISTER."  From there, our online application system will walk you through the entire registration process, including payment.  Please note that the online application -- not the roster or medical forms -- is the OFFICIAL means by which your team will gain entry into the tournament. 

Do I have to have my roster finalized prior to registering a team?

No, you may submit your roster at any point before the tournament.  The online team application does not require you to fill in any information specific to individual players.

When is the registration deadline?

The tournament entry fee is set at $215 per team until the early bird deadline on Friday, May 22, at 11:59pm.  Registration increases to $240 per team from Saturday, May 23 until Friday, June 12 at 11:59pm.  This is the final application deadline.

How will I know that my team has been accepted?

You will receive an email from our staff (info@dcunitedsoccerfest.com) within five business days of receipt of payment.  If you do not hear from us within that time window, please follow up to the above email address or call 703.533.4825.

Can I sign up multiple teams?

Absolutely! We will make every effort to minimize conflicts, but we cannot guarantee that you won’t be scheduled for two games at the same time.

What’s this I hear about being able to play on both Saturday AND Sunday?

D.C. United SoccerFest consists of three separate tournament sessions -- 1. Saturday morning; 2. Saturday afternoon; 3. Sunday morning, so in actuality, you could enter your team as many three times (provided, of course, we have enough competitive brackets at your age and skill level to field a division).  If you do enter your team more than once, we will discount each entry by $15 (but it MUST be the same exact roster)

I want to bring in a team from out of town.  Are there any special accommodations?

Yes, D.C. United SoccerFest makes a concerted effort to attract teams from out of town. To accommodate these teams, we have partnered with the Zenith Group to facilitate simple, convenient, one-stop shopping for hotel accommodations at great prices.  To book your team hotel rooms, please visit www.thezenithgrp.com and click on D.C. United SoccerFest.
