Welcome to the Friendly City Tournament. We hope you will join us February 10-12, 2023. Registration has been extended until February 4, 2023. We hope you will find this tournament a wonderful experience and a great way to kick off your Spring Season. More information will follow as we get closer to the date.
Can't wait to see you here!
Thank you for coming to Columbus to play in the Friendly City Shootout. Like many of your home fields, the Lowndes County Soccer Complex has received significant rain prior to this weekend. We are taking measures to negotiate these conditions and still allow teams to play; without setting the fields back several weeks and incurring large sums to restore.
Please note the following and make sure your coach, players, AND players and families are aware.
1. Several fields have been closed. Those are clearly marked with signs stating, "Field Closed". Please make sure your teams do not warm-up on those fields and no one uses them in any manner.
2. The area around several fields, particularly Sprint Mart, are mushy. We are asking supporters NOT to go through these areas, not sit in these areas etc. These areas are clearly marked with signs that state "No Spectators in This Area." Please make sure that your teams, supporters, etc. do not go into these areas.
3. To limit the impact on fields pre-game warm-up is NOT allowed on the playing area. Please use areas adjacent to the playing area to warm-up. There is also a grassy area adjacent to the restrooms that can be used for warm-up. A practice net has been placed in this area.
