"It’s an exciting opportunity for the city of Westfield, not only for us to have the exposure, not only to these Big Ten teams and fans, but to also give the central Indiana soccer players, soccer fans an opportunity to come and see this elite level of soccer played right here,” Duncan Gardner says.

This is the third consecutive year Westfield will host the men’s tournament and the second year for the women’s. 

“We are excited to again host the Men’s and Women’s Big Ten Soccer Tournament at Grand Park and the fans of whichever teams make it to this elite competition,” says Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “We are equally as excited for the thousands of soccer fans across Central Indiana who will be able to attend and experience it.”
