US Club Soccer welcomes Rated Sports Group as tournament sanctioning partner

US Club Soccer is proud to partner with Rated Sports Group, sanctioning their tournaments and events nationwide.

Rated Sports Group is one of the most influential and recognized youth sporting event organizers in North America. Originally formed by running small-sided camps and tournaments, Rated Sports Group is now the brand behind several notable multi-state tournaments which draw competitive teams from around the world to compete at great venues and cities across the nation. 

US Club Soccer will act as the sanctioning body for annual tournaments hosted by Rated Sports Group for the duration of the agreement.

“With US Club Soccer becoming the fastest growing youth organization in the U.S., this couldn’t have been a better supporting piece for our event series across America,” said Michael Rocca, Director at Rated Sports Group.

RSG has a proven track record of success when it comes to staging impactful youth soccer tournaments. RSG events continue to draw competitive teams from across North America while providing them an opportunity to play in front of college and professional scouts. In addition to providing top youth soccer talent with a platform, RSG’s events offers a significant economic boost to the local economies of communities that host them.

“Partnering with US Club Soccer is a perfect fit for Rated Sports Group while continuing to grow the tournament series across America,” said Tara Pielaet, Marketing Director at Rated Sports Group. “This alignment offers a great opportunity to work with US Club Soccer while providing a competitive tournament platform for all members and youth soccer governing bodies.”

One of Rated Sports Group’s missions is giving back to the community.  A mission they successfully accomplish through continued support to various youth programs and charity groups across the country and by sponsoring teams who would not otherwise be able to participate in the tournament circuit.  

Aligning with US Club Soccer’s core values and high standard of event execution, Rated Sports Group is a welcome addition to the existing partnership portfolio.
