Herndon’s Winter World Cup is our most popular program, and an original concept only offered in Herndon! It is a competitive, yet very fun tournament held over the winter with games only. It is a great opportunity for players across travel teams and clubs to deepen or build friendships and camaraderie through the love of soccer.
The emphasis of the program is enjoyment and development through competition--not through coaching.
· 7v7 or 9v9 with goalkeepers
· Similar to the FIFA World Cup, the first round of games in the Winter World Cup are the “group stage” to set up seeding for the second stage based on points.
· Unlike the FIFA World Cup, teams are not eliminated in a “knock-out stage” but rather continue in seeded matchups until the final day of championship or consolation games.
