Wreckers Sponsor Great World Cup Event And Viewing Party June 22

The World Cup is about to begin. And Staples boys soccer invites all of Westport to take part.

On Sunday, June 22 the Wreckers are sponsoring a unique “Westport World Cup Day.” The event combines every element of the World Cup: competition, camaraderie and passion.

On that day, the US plays Portugal in a very tough match. From 3:30 -5:00 p.m at the Staples athletic fields, elementary and middle school players are invited to “warm up” with an afternoon of small-sided games and fun. Staples players will organize the events, including mini-tournaments, a dribbling obstacle course, a penalty kick contest and more.

At 5 p.m.,food trucks at Staples will serve a “pre-game” meal.

At 5:30 we’ll head to the Staples auditorium. We’ll show the US-Portugal match on a 20-foot screen. We can’t be in Brazil, but we’ll cheer the Americans on as loudly as we can.

And at halftime, we’ll pick a raffle winner. The prize: a special, behind-the-scenes tour of ESPN headquarters conducted by Jeremy Schaap. Up to 8 people will enjoy a day in the studios and digital center, with lunch in the ESPN cafeteria.

We hope you can join us for all 3 events: kids’ event, food, and the World Cup match.  But if you can only make 1 or 2, that’s fine. Just click here to save a spot.

But wait! There’s more! We’ve got special t-shirt to commemorate the day (and help us defray costs). Click here to order (June 10 deadline).

The World Cup is special — and so is Westport soccer. We look forward to sharing the excitement with you on June 22!
