The Bluegrass Futsal Cup is coming to the Owensboro Convention Center on Dec. 17-19, making it the first event to be held on the new multi-purpose sports floor.
Ty Stauffer, Owner of SportsTutor and Executive Director of Owensboro United, said the futsal community is excited to host the inaugural Bluegrass Futsal Cup in Owensboro.
“The community’s investment has made the Owensboro Convention Center a destination for indoor sporting events,” he said. “We look forward to being the first organization to have youth players on-site for competition in this excellent facility. For years our area youth and adult players have enjoyed the fast- paced futsal game while developing unmatched technical skills with the ball and now we have a big stage in Owensboro to showcase players from our region.”
The movable sports floor and equipment — which can be used to host events such as basketball, volleyball, handball, and futsal — was funded by a partnership between Owensboro Health, Daviess County Fiscal Court, and the City of Owensboro. The project was first announced in June.
“We are thrilled that Owensboro United Soccer Club is hosting our first-ever futsal tournament in the Owensboro Convention Center, and is the first event to utilize the new flooring and equipment,” said Laura Alexander, General Manager with Spectra Venue Management at the Owensboro Convention Center. “We are also in the works with finalizing another sporting event for 2022 that we hope to announce shortly.”
The Bluegrass Futsal Cup will be open to boys and girls U8-U19. Registration is open through Wednesday through HTG Sports. The cost is $425 per team or $13.50 per player (USYF Registration). Daily admission for attendees is $5 for adults and $3 for children 8 and under.
