The 2016 Soctoberfest will be held in Fort Wayne on Friday, September 30th and Saturday, October 1st. Fort Wayne Sport Club, located at 3102 Ardmore Ave in Fort Wayne, will host the weekend event. This year marks the 11th anniversary of our Soctoberfest.

The 11th annual Soctoberfest will ‘kick off’ on Friday evening, September 30th, with a 6v6 tournament with play beginning at 6:00 p.m. in both ‘Recreational’ and ‘Competitive’ brackets. Teams can register at the Fort Wayne Sport Club Clubhouse on Mondays and Wednesdays during Adult Recreational soccer or online using the registration form found at csiscko or 260-403-6147 for more information. We are asking teams to register early in order to set brackets and start play right away at 6:00 p.m.

The 6v6 tournament entry fee is $60 per team with each team being guaranteed at least three 25 minute games. There will be prizes for the winning teams and lots fun for all. Please come to enjoy the soccer, food and fun. The 6v6 tournament will use a small-sided pitch with small-sided goals. Six players are allowed on the pitch but games will be played with no goalies. There will be no offside nor slide tackling. The first rounds will be round-robin format with the winning teams moving on to the final rounds. Entertainment and refreshments will continue in the Club House following the tournament.

On Saturday, the fun continues with Veterans’ Games beginning at noon, 1:30 and 3:00 p.m. The evening will bring our 5th annual Fall Craft Beer Tasting. We will be selling ½ liter glass boots emblazoned with the Fort Wayne Sport Club logo. The cost will be one boot for $15. This was a limited purchase, so buy yours before they’re all gone.
