Palatine Celtic Cup Soccer Tournament


We are scheduling semis and finals now.  Please don't be alarmed that we have finals scheduled very late.  They will be moved back to earlier in the day soon.


If your semi finals are not scheduled as of 4 PM on Sunday, they will be played on Monday..  You will recieve updates tonight.  Expect to play semi finals in the AM between 7 am and 10 AM start times.  Finals will then most likely be played in the early afternoon.  We hope to have the entire schedule updated by 10 PM.  


We have removed the semi-finals from the schedule so that we can- reschedule the games we lost yesterday and Friday.  We will be determining if and when the semi-finals will be played as soon as possible.  Please be patient.

Currrent plan for

1:34 PM We are starting to reschedule the games that were postponed from last night and this morning.  You will have at least 4 hours notice jwhen we reschedule your game.  It could be anytime from now until tomorrow evening.  We will notify your teams through the GotSoccer messaging system.


11:04 AM  Any game that started inthe 9:00 hour on Saturday and did not make it to half time, we are going to try to reschedule.  Any game that was due to start in the 10:00 hour we will play one half of the game so that we can try to get back on schedule.  We are currently 12 minutes from getting a reset on the lightning detector.

We are in the process of rescheduling the games that were not played on Friday night.  The schedule you see online is still a work in progress.  We will update this page with more info as early as possible in the morning.
