"A fantastic event and a fantastic skyline. We were honored to have 3 teams from our club play at the Global 5's National championship. With the Manhattan skyline providing the perfect backdrop to some brilliant play every single player and family member experienced a great day of soccer. Upon arrival it instantly felt very different from other youth soccer tournaments. Between the goals, equipment, free uniforms, hydration and recovery stations our players felt like they had arrived at a mini Olympics.

The players, families and coaches left the field of competition asking when the next tournament is and as a director of a club, there's no bigger endorsement I would want to hear. Great work by all the staff to execute the event like clockwork; and we hope to have the opportunity to play again next year."

Kieran Patrick. Cedar Stars Academy, Director of Coaching Newark Division.


"Over the years I have attended some prestigious events such as USYA State, Regional and national competitions; the same for US Club, USDA and ECNL events. This event had a big time feel with respect to the organization, quality of play, uniforms and equipment.

As a fellow owner of a youth sports organization, I can appreciate all the hard work that went into the event behind the scenes. Global Team Events and their staff certainly delivered with an impressive efficiency and always with a smile! We definitely want to come back in 2017."

Justin Marriott. Verona United U12b


"I wanted to let you know how much the Gunners enjoyed the Global 5s National Championship. What a truly fantastic event! We have played in tournaments all over the United States this year but nothing matched this!

The players could not believe the got full PUMA uniforms. I heard one player telling his team mates this is what Sergio Aguero must feel like every day. We will certainly be back to defend our title next year."

Richard Maurer. Levittown Gunners U14b
