OBGC Capital Cup features top competition at premiere facilities, fundraising for Senior Dog Sanctuary in Anne Arundel County
COLUMBIA, MD — Labor Day weekend is generally thought of as the unofficial end of summer and the start of a new school year. In Maryland’s Central and Capital regions, the holiday weekend marks the return of one of the premier soccer events in the Mid-Atlantic. TheOBGC Capital Cup gets underway Saturday, with match play continuing through Monday, as some of the top club soccer teams from around the country will square-off at some of the top facilities in Howard and Montgomery counties.
“For many teams, the event is the start of their fall season and the first time they’ve played together, either since the spring or on a new team,” said Elle Marks, Business Development Manager for Elite Tournaments. Marks says the OBGC Capital Cup has become a perennial event for many organizations because of the quality of competition, tournament atmosphere and the facilities being used. Tournament play will take place at Lucido Fields at Covenant Park in Ellicott City, as well as various fields in the Olney area, including OBGC Community Park at Freeman Fields.
Together with the Soccer Association of Columbia (SAC), Elite Tournaments hosts the Amanda Post Memorial Soccer Tournament.
