The Vineland Soccer Association's 11th Annual Memorial Day Weekend Tournament was the largest and best attended in history, as well as, the sunniest and HOTTEST. 156 teams from Delaware, Southern and Central New Jersey, Long Island, NY and Southeastern Pennsylvania brought players to Vineland. That comes to a total of about 2,300 soccer players. Adding in families and fans, this brings the total number of people to over 7,000 attending. The event brings in more than $1.4 million in hotel rooms, food, drinks, ice, and lots of suntan lotion.
