New Soccer Tournament Coming to Philadelphia

A new soccer tournament is coming to Philadelphia and it will bring together the city's various immigrant communities.

Mayor Jim Kenney today announced the annual Philadelphia International Unity Cup.

Philadelphians will make up 32 teams — each representing a different nation. They will compete in a world cup style tournament played across the city in September and October.

The championship game will be played at Citizens Bank Park in November.

Philadelphia's Department of Parks & Recreation is organizing the tournament.

Mayor Kenney says soccer is the perfect sport to bring immigrant communities together since it's an international game.

The tournament is open to men and women at least 18 years old. Teams will be limited to 25 players each.
