2013 World Cup Juniors -


Final Tournament Wrap-up Report






The Walz Group of Raymond James Financial










On behalf of Mockingbird Valley Sports Complex (MVSC), The Walz Group of Raymond James Financial, and all corporate sponsors who contributed to its success, we would like to thank ALL parents, players, and coaches for participating in and supporting this first-ever World Cup Juniors Soccer Tournament, a special soccer event hosted July 27-28, 2013, by MVSC in Louisville, KY benefitting Blessings in a Backpack.




We could not be more proud to have been a part of such a successful first year event, and are especially thankful to all who participated as players, parents/supporters, and spectators, as your support truly gave a great foundation for an event that we hope to host annually for years to come. Registration of your teams not only created a FUN and competitive soccer event, but it helped fund-raise for a great cause, with all proceeds going to Blessings In A Backpack. Due to the overwhelming support by way of participation, and the positive reception of the event by nearly all of those who were in attendance, we expect to grow this event to become a city-wide attraction for families and soccer teams to enjoy community time together around the beautiful game (youth soccer).




With the help of all participants, corporate sponsors, individual donations and supporters, we successfully raised more than $3000.00 for our designated charity, Blessings in a Backpack, without having to charge for participation! Our intent with this soccer event was to give back to the community in which we live, to help feed our competitive and community spirits, and ultimately feed many children who truly need our help.




Please know: Blessings in a Backpack is a 501(C)3 and is based here in Louisville, KY. We ask that, for those of you who had intended to donate, but have not yet done so, please follow through, and join us in supporting the children of the Louisville Community. More information about Blessings In A Backpack can be found at: www.blessingsinabackpack.org orinfo@blessingsinabackpack.org. For those still interested in making a donation, please reach out to 1-800-872-4366, or:

MVSC would also like to issue a special thanks to Tim Jeffus for his help in making this special event come to life.




As with all that we strive to offer at MVSC, we have put together a short survey that we hope you will participate in to help us continue to improve upon the foundation that has been laid for this event. By participating, you will also be able to view pictures that we have collected from the tournament, following your completion of the short survey.

We hope you will join us next year, and again, we thank you for your participation and contributions to making this a very successful event!!
