Ninth annual DC SCORES Cup Saturday to feature tournament's largest field

2010 champion and eight-time participant Hogan Lovells.
Tomorrow morning, the largest DC SCORES Cup will kick off at the Maryland SoccerPlex.

A mix of 24 law firms, corporations and soccer clubs will take the turf fields in Gaithersburg for one of DC SCORES’ two main fundraisers along with the Inspired Art Gala, which raised $80,000 in May.

This will be the ninth edition of the SCORES Cup, formerly known as the Sharks vs. Suits Shootout, and the second at the SoccerPlex’s sprawling and pristine complex. Close to 400 Washington, DC area professionals will take part in friendly competition.

The tournament is co-ed and 7v7. It’s set up World Cup-style so that every team plays three games in group play and then eight teams advance to the quarterfinals.

We would like to thank all of the teams (listed below) as well as the tournament sponsors (also listed below) for supporting DC SCORES through the tournament — 100 percent of each team’s entry fee directly supports our 800 poet-athletes.

The tournament has grown almost every year, and 24 teams is the most we’ve ever had in the bracket. Next year’s goal? A full World Cup bracket of 32.

For now, though, we’re excited to see plenty of great action Saturday in Gaithersburg. Come join us beginning at 9 a.m.
