Portage Celery Cup 2017

Please note: No smoking, alcohol, or pets are allowed at the field locations, Thank you for your cooperation.

The Portage Soccer Club, the largest nonprofit soccer club in southwestern Michigan, sponsors the Portage Celery Cup.  The club and tournament are run by all volunteer committees. It utilizes 100% of all proceeds to be put back into the upkeep of the Portage Soccer Complex which is owned and operated by The Portage Soccer Club.  Thanks to previous years’ benefactors, this 37 acre complex includes nine beautiful full size fields which are considered to be one of the nicest in the state.

We have been privileged to have hosted some great players over the years which have developed skills to achieve honors at high school, college, state and beyond.  Portage Soccer Club alumni include BJ Snow, two time NCAA Champion (Indiana), former Head Coach UCLA Women’s Soccer, now US U17 Women’s National Team Coach; Jacob Peterson, NCAA Champion (Indiana) currently with Atlanta United, formerly with San Jose Earthquakes; Eric Alexander, Houston Dynamos, formerly with Portland Timbers and as a high school senior named Gatorade Player of the Year; Lindsay Tarpley, two time Olympic Gold Medalist; WPS Boston Breakers; and Paige Wester, Portage Central 2009 Miss Michigan Soccer.

All games will be played at the Portage Soccer Complex, the premier nine field facility in Southwest Michigan!. Click here for maps and directions to the fields.
