About Memphis Cup of Nations
Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland and the Shelby County Board of Commissioners, along with World Relief Memphis, Christ Church UMC, Barnhart Crane, Christian Brothers University, Kyle Rote Jr. and other community partners are honored to host the Sixth Annual Memphis Cup of Nations, April 27, 2019* to celebrate our diverse international community.
The theme for the Memphis Cup of Nations is to seize the universal passion for sport, connect the nations, and build community. Sixteen teams representing 16 different nations, will compete in a day-long soccer tournament to determine the best in Memphis to celebrate, recognize and honor an often overlooked part of our community that numbers some 100,000+.
Nations come together every four years to compete in the World Cup of Soccer. Memphis is an international city with many different nationalities represented. Through the annual Memphis Cup of Nations, our internationals can come together each spring and join with the community to build relationships and lasting friendships.
Memphis joins St. Louis, Houston, Atlanta, Boston, and other cities in hosting this international tournament in our community.
*In the event fields are unplayable due to weather or standing water, the tournament “rain date” will be May 4, 2019 at an alternate location.
