The Kino Sports Complex in Tucson is hosting Southern Arizona's largest youth-soccer tournament, the Tucson Association of Realtors Shootout, this weekend.
The 27th year for the Tucson Association of Realtors Shootout, running Friday through Sunday at the complex, is expected to attract thousands of young soccer players and fans from as far away as Mexico, a posting on the Pima County website said. Approximately 340 teams have registered for the shootout, the posting said.
Besides the soccer matches other events, including a parade of teams to open the shootout, are planned, with most scheduled for at Kino Sports Complex while some will be held at Townsend Middle School, Udall Park and Golf Links Parks.
Admission to the event is free, as is parking. Every event location will offer concessions. Some food trucks and local vendors will be onsite as well.
