Cincy Challenge 2023

Welcome to the Cincy Challenge!

Cincy Challenge Teams,

On behalf of Kings Hammer Soccer Club, we would like to welcome you to Cincinnati for the 2023 Cincy Challenge. We are looking forward to a fun and competitive weekend of soccer!

The Cincy Challenge has long been established as one of the best-run tournaments in the Fall in the Cincinnati area. Hosted for nearly 20 years, the event offers a club-friendly environment with competition for all levels of play, professional referee crews, and first-class facilities.

In this guide, you will find all the information you need for this year’s event including links to schedules, facility maps, and local area attractions to visit while you are in town. Please take a moment to look through the guide. We also ask that you forward this link to all of your players and families, so they have this information for the weekend. The link is mobile friendly as well so they can pull it up on their phone and refer to it throughout the event.

Thank you for choosing the Cincy Challenge! We are excited about the great competition this year and look forward to hosting your team in Cincinnati!

Voice of America Park: Please note that Voice of America Park has a new parking pass process. Please share this with everyone on your team to expedite receiving your pass when you arrive onsite. Everyone must purchase a pass and all passes must be purchased onsite at the event. There is no longer an option to purchase online in advance. Both cash and credit will be accepted. Passes are $8 per day or $15 for the two days. Passes will be available for purchase at both entrances to Voice of America. Due to the size of this event, we encourage you to arrive early to the complex. We also recommend carpooling as parking may be limited at times. Please be patient as the parking staff work to get people their passes as quickly as possible. At no time may players exit cars and head to fields as this becomes a safety issue. To see a map of the complex, please click here.

Team Check-In

Since team check-in took place online in advance, you do not need to check-in when you arrive at the fields.  However, please make sure to bring your player cards to each game.

Team Gifts

Please have one representative from your team (coach/manager) stop by the HQ tent at either Voice of America Park (located on the back side of the UC Fieldhouse) to pick up the team gifts.


Awards will be given to the champion and finalist in each division following each Championship match. Please send one representative to the HQ tent at VOA (located on the back side of the UC Fieldhouse) to pick up your medals. If you are in a group of five, the top two teams will receive medals. Please stop by the HQ/Volunteer tent to see if you finished 1st or 2nd. If we are not yet able to determine this based on other games in your group still going on, we will notify you and mail you your medals if you placed 1st or 2nd in the division.

Weather Updates

In the event of inclement weather, we will update our website with details on the field status.  If anything changes from a weather or field standpoint for the weekend we will inform all Coaches and Team Managers as listed in the GotSport system. Please make sure to update your team contact information if you have not already done so.
