Please note: There will be no printed “parking passes” for the tournament, and no individuals will be charged for parking. It is the responsibility of the tournament host to ensure all teams have paid their “Team Parking Fee” before their first games.
We ask that all teams make an effort to check in on Friday night (May 3rd), from 6 to 8pm, at our office (1459 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa, 50309), the Kum & Go headquarters.
You’ll find a list of required materials on the "Check-In" link up top.
I understand that some out-of-town teams cannot make it Friday night, and I ask these teams check in at the soccer park at least one hour before your first game.
On Saturday morning, you can find me (or a Menace staff member) on the right side of the concourse, welcoming teams at a table in front of the concessions stand.
The City of Des Moines operates concessions for all tournaments at Cownie Soccer Park.
