Gallery+Story: El Paso Galacticas FC to Play for San Diego Surf Cup

After 3 years of  long practices, grueling games and plain, old waiting – Galacticas FC Select 00′  soccer club have been accepted into the Prestigious San Diego Surf Cup competition.

Galacticas’ Coach Javier McDonald says the invite is the end result of three years of hard work.

“One of our goals was to take these girls to that tournament because they deserve it. ..we had tried it for 3 years and finally it was given to us,” McDonald said.

He adds, “This tournament does not take into account the Got Soccer points or rankings – for those who care about that – here they evaluate the team’s record and you are chosen based on that and the teams you have faced.”

This is just the latest tournament that Galacticas have attended this year; over the Memorial Day weekend, the team participated in the Manchester City Cup, and were in Dallas for the International Girls Cup.

For over 30 years, the San Diego Surf Cup has been the summer showcase for youth soccer’s Best of the Best. The San Diego Surf Cup draws the attention of thousands of spectators each year and attracted over 450 college coaches and scouts in 2016.

Officials with the Surf Cup say, “With 450 college coaches and scouts in 2016, there’s no better place to play and be recognized than our tournament.”

All games will be played on grass fields at either the Surf Cup Sports Park in Del Mar or So Cal Sports Complex in Oceanside, California.
