2015 WCP CUP will
be taking place in Regina, at the Credit Union EventPlex, from March 26th through April 18th. The WCP Cup Soccer
Tournament and multicultural event has grown tremendously in only 10 years, exploding into a three week event with over 1,200 participants (Men, Women and
Youth Boys and Girls), over 100 volunteers and more than 20,000 spectators expected.
Soccer players from across Saskatchewan, Canada and even other countries represent their Nations of heritage in the WCP Cup. Great effort has always been made to keep the level of on-field play and competitiveness extremely high, while at the same time making sure that the multicultural event remains focused on the participants, the nations that are represented and the amazing fans that have always come out in fanatic droves to support their Nations and cultural communities.
2015 WCP CUP Draw will
be taking place Thursday, March 5th at the Lobby Public House 2545 S Broad Street, Regina at 8:30pm
The WCP Cup is put on through the non-profit corporation World Class Players Sport Inc. and is the brainchild of renowned soccer superstar and Regina Sports Hall of Fame inductee, Kevin Holness. Mr. Holness is an amazing ambassador for the sport, and he exemplifies the way soccer can unite people, cultures and communities. Opening Ceremonies take place at 6:30pm on Thursday, March 26th, 2015. Updated game scores will be provided on a daily basis.
Apr 12/2014 For years, the WCP Cup's organizing committee tried unsuccessfully to find people interested in putting together a First Nations team. Then this spring, Fox came to the organizers and asked about entering a team.
Not surprisingly, his inquiry was well-received. "It's not necessarily the team (that was important); it's the idea that we have such a large demographic of people in Regina as well as in Saskatchewan and Western Canada that wasn't represented," says Adam Ailsby, a member of the organizing committee. "The whole purpose of this event is to be inclusive in a multicultural environment and we had such a large demographic not represented. It was important to have this group come and represent them.
"Throughout the last couple of weekends during the First Nations games, we've had people saying, 'Wow, I didn't even know these guys were playing. This is great.' They don't know anybody on the team, but they're coming out because they're sharing a culture."
Apr 15/2014 Kevin Holness is like a proud father when it comes to the World Class Players Cup. The 42-year-old Regina resident is the founder of the soccer tournament, the 10th annual edition of which is underway at the Credit Union Eventplex. He's there daily from the start of the first game to the end of the last game - and he wouldn't have it any other way. "It's just a pleasure to give the players, especially the youth, an opportunity to play in an atmosphere like this," Holness says. "I'm grateful for the size the tournament has become. I get a lot of help behind the scenes. It's not only me. "It's something special when you come in here on opening day and see the crowd and the different cultures and the different communities coming together that don't usually partake in events together. It's awesome."
The rules of soccer are very simple,if it moves kick it. If it doesn`t move kick it until it does-Ronaldo.
