The Slurpee Cup is turning 40 this year.
Soccer fields across the city will be packed, with 169 teams expected to be in the city for the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association tournament.
The KYSA has 26 teams competing in the province’s longest-running youth soccer tourney, which begins on Saturday and wraps up on Monday.
“We must thank the staff in the parks, recreation and culture department for the remarkable job they do to ensure our visitors and our own teams get to play on top quality playing fields and for making the facilities look great for the event,” KYSA president Candace Dodson-Willis said.
More than 3,000 players and team officials are expected to participate.
