It is with disappointment that we are writing to you to inform you that we are canceling the Manhattan Soccer Club KOC 2014 Tournament.
The following circumstances led to our decision: (1) we lost 7-8 fields this morning as the fields were frozen and or were determined to be unsafe; (2) the weather forecast did not improve and the temperatures predicted for Saturday morning actually fell; and (3) the storm forecast for Sunday has worsened and may impact travel on Sunday evening.
We attempted to reschedule yet again with a later start on Saturday morning, but the loss of backup fields, and a worsening forecast for Saturday and Sunday have led us to this decision.
There will be a full refund for all teams. Teams who paid with a credit card will receive a refund back on the card. Teams who paid with an e-check will receive a separate email with instructions. For teams that paid by check, the checks will not be deposited. Due to the size of our event, please allow us 4-6 weeks to process the refunds. We appreciate your patience with this.
The tournament's travel agent, AB Sports Zone, will email all the hotels. However, players still must call their hotels to specifically cancel their reservations and obtain cancellation reference numbers.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
