Contact Housing Service Immediately - do not wait for acceptance.
Teams participating in the Tournament ARE REQUIRED to make all hotel accommodations using our tournament housing service. We have negotiated with all tournament hotels to have a no-penalty charge if the event is canceled 72 hours prior to the event.
The tournament housing service is a free service and enables the City of Virginia Beach to ascertain tax revenue and in turn, helps with future grants to build/improve soccer field/facilities development. We encourage your support of developing facilities for youth players. Some hotels will be offering single-night stays - check the listing on the website for this information.
