BISMARCK, ND - Two teams from Canada and more than 100 from North and South Dakota are going head-to-head for the Frosty cup. More than 800 kids are having a ball in Bismarck this weekend.

The tournament includes boys and girls teams from ten to nineteen. Hundreds of athletes like Liam Weiler from Fargo.

"The intensity, that's one of my favorite parts, and just getting better and improving," said Weiler.

The tournament is being played at two venues this year to make room for all of the growth. Last year many were turned away because of space and time constraints.

"The main thing now as a coach is coaching the younger kids and the youth of today is making smile and making them more competitive and getting them progressing off to college," said Jordan Pearce, Dakota United Executive Director.

It's the largest indoor soccer tournament in the state, helping kids like Liam work towards their dreams.

"I want to go to college to play, and then I'll see where that takes me after that," said Weiler.

The championship matches will be tomorrow at the Fore Seasons Arena between 12-5pm if anyone wants to stop by just for kicks.
