The trend continues.

In an annual tradition, the DC SCORES Cup set a record for number of teams and funds raised to support our poet-athletes. The rain also held off despite a nebulous forecast, making for an impeccable day of soccer.

On Saturday, June 23, 46 teams and more than 700 participants representing highly respected companies and law firms from the greater Washington, DC, area converged on the Maryland SoccerPlex in Gaithersburg, Md., for the 16th Annual DC SCORES Cup presented by Cuisine Solutions.

Men and women wearing different colored shirts with their logos on the back played in more than 100 games across six fields. It was nonstop action from 8:30am-5:30pm. The tournament culminated with four champions, including three first-time winners who did it in their first year - PWC Public Sector (Casual Division), Wells Fargo (Intermediate Division), Arnold & Porter (Law Division) and World Bank (Competitive Division).

But everyone had a great time. When teams broke between games, participants enjoyed both breakfast and then lunch options from Cuisine Solutions; visited the D.C. United and Washington Spirit tents to learn more about our local professional teams; and then walked over to a hill where a jumbotron showed the three World Cup games throughout the day. Entertainment was everywhere.

Everyone stayed hydrated thanks to longtime supporter DrinkMore Water, and Cuisine Solutions had food for recharging throughout the cloudy (then sun-soaked) day. A big thanks to all 46 participating companies and firms (including multiple-team entries!).
