Following the decisions announced a short while ago by the Governor of Maryland, the Cherry Blossom Tournament has been CANCELED. Obviously, it is with great regret that we make this announcement, but I think everybody understands the issues we all are facing. Information regarding refunds will be posted here, likely on Monday, March 16.

The MSI Cherry Blossom Classic soccer tournament is to be played the weekend of March 20-22, 2020 (majority of teams will be March 21-22). Our tournament headquarters will be at the Maryland Soccerplex in Germantown, Maryland. Participating teams can expect great competition, superior fields and the most well run tournament they have ever attended. Competition will be held in age groups U-9 through U-19 for boys and girls teams. All teams are guaranteed 3 games and all games will be played either at the Maryland Soccerplex or at other synthetic turf fields in Montgomery County. (IMPORTANT NOTE: Some games will be played on Friday evening, March 20. If your team is not able to play Friday evening, please be certain to indicate that when you register your team.)
This tournament is sanctioned by the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) (click here to view USYS Permission to Host).
The application deadline is February 14th.
The Cherry Blossom Classic Tournament has become one of the most competitive and fun spring pre-season events in the mid-Atlantic region. We expect that most age groups in our tournament will feature a Premier and Classic division. The Cherry Blossom Classic Tournament will provide a great opportunity for your team to prepare for spring league play.
