Will CA ECNL teams be allowed to play in the AZ showcase?
Does this only apply to ECNL teams/clubs? The Albion tournament (being held in AZ) schedule just came out and it's full of CA teams.Nope. Not unless CDPH removes the “teams must not play in out of state games or tournaments” verbiage that’s still in the youth sports guidance before we go.
ECNL banned CA teams from Houston due to insurance issues so I would guess the same would happen for AZ
USclub insurance may not be valid for CA teams that play but there are others sources for that including the tournament hosts. Same for Cal South members.
Have you any idea the logistics it takes to organize an event of this magnitude?Kinda ironic that Albion now would be able to "legally" hold its tournament in their home SD county, but will be breaking state mandates by traveling out of state. If they can get local fields in a month, they may want to reconsider location. Certainly would be cheaper (and safer) for their families. And holding a tournament out of state does bring some business/liability risk. Let's see if they make a player/family-centric decision or club-focused decision. History suggests it will be the latter.
