Elite Tournaments and Empire United Soccer Academy would like to start by sharing our deepest regrets for having to make the decision to cancel the Empire Cup Boys Weekend. We do our best to be prepared for weather and have contingency plans in place; however, the continuous rain that hit the region drastically affected the fields. The fields are unplayable and unsafe for use; the permits were withdrawn by the controlling entity. While we understand that you are disappointed by the fact that your team was not able to play, please understand that the tournament organizing committee did their best to find alternatives before cancelling the tournament.
