The Father Christmas Cup is a soccer fundraiser held each December to help local Atlanta families who will be missing a parent for the first time over the holiday period and to also memorialize those active in our soccer community that have passed within the previous 12 months.
Deadline for team registration is November 11th, team captains only.
Please Note: If you want to choose your shirt-size, you must register before the registration deadline of November 25th. If you miss the registration deadline, all men will receive an X-Large shirt by default and all women will receive a large shirt on the day of the event.
