SUPERCOPA+ 2023 is a four (4) day tournament beginning Friday, May 26th. (ending on Monday, May 29th). We strive to give every team in SUPERCOPA+ equal amounts of rest between games. We also schedule to have teams play no more than 2 games per day on one (1) day only during Group Play of the event. With that in mind ALL teams need to be prepared to play the morning of Friday, May 26th. There can be NO EXCEPTIONS to this due to the number of teams in the tournament, scheduling, and travel requirements.
Monday games may end as late as 5pm, provided there are no weather delays. Please plan flights accordingly for a game ending as late as 5pm. Please remember that the unique structure of SUPERCOPA+ event playoffs provide for multiple finals games per age group. 25% of the teams will be playing in finals games, so it is best to plan on your team making it!
Practice options are available on Thursday, May 25th from 9AM-5PM. Practice slots are for one hour, on a half field, with one goal. One practice time slot per team. SUPERCOPA+ practice fields are located at G.T. Bray Park, 33rd Avenue Drive West, Bradenton, FL (directions link on sign up page).

Yes, for all 3 group round games. Once we enter Quarter-Finals and beyond, there is no way to manage this. In order to keep coaches out of conflict, they must be listed in GotSport as the Head Coach of all teams with their first and last names spelled exactly the same. This is how GotSport software identifies any conflict situations.
The tournament committee takes great care in seeding and bracketing. Your team’s recent game history will be researched, and we also request that you complete the Seeding Request Form available under the “Tournament Forms | Rules” section by April 22nd. Each team coach and manager will receive further information once the bracketing process begins.
Brackets will be released approximately 30 days prior to the event start date.
Schedules will be released approximately 14 days prior to the event start date.
Part of what makes SUPERCOPA+ so special is not only the strength of the participating teams but also the geographic variety. The tournament committee does factor in team location in bracketing attempting to ensure that all 3 group round games are against new opponents. In submitting your team’s seeding request form, you are encouraged to list any participating teams whom you have faced within the past 2-3 months.
Yes. When cities provide top notch facilities such as IMG Academy, they do so because they see positive economic impact from visitors traveling in for a tournament, and that impact must be measurable. Measurements are achieved through the booking of hotels by the teams. The city has access to tournament records as well as exact hotel bookings per team and will force us to remove any team not showing the minimum required rooms booked through the U90C travel partners. Each registered travel team is required to book a minimum of 10 hotel rooms per team, for the duration of the event. Please be sure that this is acceptable to your team prior to registering for SUPERCOPA+.
No. U90C does not allow the contracted hotels to charge rates higher than their rates offered directly by the hotel. We also seek out and contract first with hotels providing certain things beneficial to soccer teams, such as free breakfast, a pool, make every attempt to give teams their rooms close together, etc.
All teams traveling from greater than 75-miles from IMG Academy will be required to book through our travel partner. Tournament hotels can be accessed on the SuperCopa+ website via the “TRAVEL” link (under the “CLUBHOUSE” dropdown menu). DO NOT book directly through the hotel, through an online discount travel website, or book a hotel outside of our partnered hotels. Tournament Hotels are typically open for booking by December 1st.
All SUPERCOPA+ hotel rooms must be reserved within 30 days of your acceptance to the tournament. This deadline is subject to change as teams are accepted closer to the date of SUPERCOPA+. If you have questions about hotel booking, please contact Shawn Ryan at email@example.com.
ROSTERS & CHECK-IN
Rosters are locked 48 hours before the 1st games kick off.
