Soccer Tournaments in WisconsinWisconsin is perhaps better known for the indoor version of soccer than the outdoor one, since the Milwaukee Wave have been a fixture in various professional indoor leagues since 1984. That makes them the oldest continuously operating pro soccer team in North America.
In the outdoor game, the best-known club is perhaps the Milwaukee Rampage, where Brian McBride began his professional career and which won the USL's A-League Championship in 2002, just a few months before they folded.
On the youth side, the biggest club is the Milwaukee Kickers, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2008, is home to over 8,000 youth players, and hosts a number of tournaments at its own 16-field indoor/outdoor soccer complex, the Uihlein Soccer Park.
For visiting soccer families looking to extracurricular activities beyond soccer, there is Old World Wisconsin, America's largest outdoor museum of rural life. The museum includes an 1870s crossroads village and an assortment of ethnic farmsteads that portray Wisconsin's history of immigration and resettlement in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Then there is Wisconsin Dells, where the Wisconsin River passes through a winding gorge that is almost 8 miles long. And Milwaukee's Summerfest is the nation's largest music festival, showcasing over 2,500 different performers each year.
Here, then, is our list of soccer tournaments in Wisconsin.
