The Fort Worth Vaqueros minor league soccer team and the FitWorth Healthy City Initiative are teaming up for the inaugural FitWorth Cup this summer.

The FitWorth Cup challenges local corporations to enter an adult team in the 7-versus-7 tournament June 2-3 — just days before the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

“Supporting the collaboration between two great Fort Worth organizations, FitWorth and the Vaqueros soccer club, is a no-brainer,” Mayor Betsy Price said. “It’s great to see the community working together to get our youth excited about being physically active, all while learning soccer skills from our local pros.”

The $1,000 registration fee benefits both the FitWorth Healthy City Initiative and the nonprofit Vaqueros Youth Academy. Each team is guaranteed three games in group-play followed by semifinals and finals. Each team receives 14 FitWorth Cup T-shirts and 20 tickets to the Vaqueros home game on June 16, where the winning teams will be recognized.

While the tournament is for adult players, youth soccer players can participate in a clinic at noon June 2. Vaqueros Village will be set up for youth pickup games and activities.

Teams may register online.
