Lost Opportunity For Elk Grove With This Weekend's National Soccer Tournament



For all the talk coming about making Elk Grove a sports destination, there was no publicity from City Hall about a major collegiate-level soccer tournament held here this weekend.

For those who were not aware, this weekend the West Coast Soccer Association held a major tournament at the Cosumnes Community Services District's Bartholomew Sports Complex. According to the WCSA's website:

"'The WCSA is proud to announce that the 2016 National Showcase will [be] held April 22 - 24th at Sacramento's Hal Bartholomew Sports Complex. 'We are excited to bring top top college club teams to the area of Sacramento,' states WCSA president Greg Runendall. 'Hal Bartholomew Sports Park is one of Northern California’s Premier Facilities and has hosted the State Cup and many regional event. This will be a great location for this event.'"

A visit to the City of Elk Grove's website makes no mention of it on the special events calendar page or calendar. The special events page does lists the following events for this weekend  - Friday, April 22, National Jelly Bean Day; Saturday, April 23, National Talk Like Shakespeare Day; and Sunday, April 24, National Pig in a Blanket Day.
