    Hosted Housing and Hotel Alternatives

    Hosted Housing

    We are coordinating hosted housing again in 2017. We will match requests with hosts on a first come-first first-serve basis. All requests for hosted housing must be received by August 15th to allow adequate time to secure hosts and match them with visiting players. Indicate your interested in hosted housing during the registration process.

     

    Hotel Alternatives

    And of course, AirBNB, and couchsurfing are also options.

  • FAQS

    Can I play in regular cleats?

    Regular molded cleats are allowed at the Bladium, in addition to indoor soccer shoes, and turf shoes.

     

    Are there hosts that I can stay with?

    We are planning to facilitate a hosted housing program in 2017. We cannot guarantee hosted housing for everyone - but will make every effort to match those looking for a place to stay with someone who's got room to share.

      

    What if I don't have a team?

    If you're not on a team, don't worry, we'll help match you to a team that's looking for players. Register as an individual, and you'll be placed on our 'Free Agent List', which will be shared with all coaches. If there are any players still on the Free Agent List on Saturday, they will be placed on a team prior to the start of the tournament. Everyone will get to play!

     

    Can women play?

    Yes! Women (and people of all gender identities) are welcome to register and play in our tournament. This is an integrated tournament - there will not be a separate bracket for women.

     

    Will there be Food at the Bladium, or the registration event Friday night?

    Yes! Bladium has a bar and restaurant in the facilities, though we recommend bringing snacks to the tournament. There's nothing within walking distance of the Bladium, but you'll have an hour break to eat during the late afternoon.

     

    What about uniforms?

    No need to bring your team uniforms. Every player will receive a tournament t-shirt that will be your jersey. We've created different color tournament shirts for each team, similar to the annual tournaments in New York and Seattle. If your team is planning to compete in uniforms, just make sure to let us know what color(s) you'll be playing in.
