The University of Northern Iowa is sponsoring a state soccer tournament the next two weekends in Waterloo. There will be competition in two age groups for the Iowa Soccer Association State Cup. Teams will be vying to represent the state of Iowa in regional competition.
UNI spokeswoman Melissa Barber says the state cup has been hosted at several locations around the state for several years. She says when they found out the Cedar Valley was going to host, they thought it would be a great opportunity for a partnership.
Teams from across the state will take part in the 13 and under and 14 and under divisions. She says there are 650 students from across the state, age 12-14 who play. Competition begins this weekend and wraps up on May 13th.
