The Penn State 8v8 takes place on the campus of Penn State University with Beaver Stadium as the backdrop. A certain level of excitement is generated by just standing on the fields. The small-sided format allows teams to pull together a squad as the fall season is about to begin.
Small-sided soccer also creates a fast-paced, high scoring game that give players many more touches on the ball. Players can knock the rust off a bit, and coaches can start to get an idea of what they have to work with for the season. The Tournament is traditionally played in early August with all games will be played at one site with the ability to play under lighted fields for night games.
