Midnight Sun Soccer Tournament

Hello Soccer Friends!

The registration deadline came and went with very little fanfare. Due to lack of teams signing up, the 2019 tournament could not launch. We hope to see the return of this event in the future and welcome you contact us if you'd like to be on our email list for future events!

Thanks and enjoy your summer :)

Tournament Info


The 2019 Midnight Sun Soccer Tournament will take place Thursday through Sunday, June 20-23, 2019 in Fairbanks, Alaska. Here we will outline and continuously update various tournament details and plans. If you have specific questions or would like to chat more about the MSST, feel free to give us a call at 907-456-3972 or email [email protected]

Registration: The deadline to register for the tournament is Sunday May 12th. Please let FYSA know as soon as your team decides to participate in the tournament, even if you'll register at a later date. This helps tremendously with planning and organizing!

Format: The MSST is competitive-level youth soccer tournament. There currently are no plans for 2019 to add recreational divisions. The 9U and 10U divisions play in a jamboree-type format per Alaska Youth Soccer guidelines, with multiple games scheduled but just no 'finals'. Divisions 11U and older will involve standard tournament format of round-robin/group play with semifinal/final rounds. Individual bracket formats will vary depending on final team counts per age group.

Schedule: Thursday activities will only include team check-in, a kick-off barbecue hosted by the local Eclipse Soccer Club and an opt-in round of first matches for any teams who wish to play that evening. Games will run all day Friday and Saturday with final matches slated for Sunday. Because of the various solstice-events taking place around the area over the course of this weekend, our goal is to ensure certain times are blocked out for teams that wish to enjoy some of these other festivities such as the annual Midnight Sun Goldpanners baseball game (Friday), the Midnight Sun Run 10K (Saturday) and the Midnight Sun Festival downtown (Sunday). There is a lot to do in Fairbanks during the summer solstice, including plenty of soccer, but we hope teams can enjoy much more during their time here.

Age-Brackets: Team registration is currently open for all age groups 9U through 16U, boys and girls divisions. Later this winter and throughout the spring, we will update this page to list all teams that are currently committed to each individual bracket. The established age-group parameters set forth by Alaska Youth Soccer will be observed for determining a team's division, such as 9U teams being those born in 2011, 10U born in 2010, etc.

Sanctioning: This tournament is sanctioned as an 'Open' event through Soccer Association for Youth (SAY Soccer) and is open to all clubs/teams that are registered with US Soccer, whether through SAY, US Youth Soccer, US Club Soccer, etc. If any teams wish to register for the MSST but are unaffiliated under USSF, feel free to contact us as we can work with our parent organization to ensure these players are registered with US Soccer and all requirements are met.
