The Soccer Association of Columbia/HC and Elite Tournaments would like to Welcome you to the 34th Annual Columbia Invitational. This years event is the biggest in it's 34 year history and we look forward to having a great weekend of soccer. Columbia is centrally located between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, MD. For simply the best soccer competition, play in Columbia over Memorial Weekend and experience for yourself why Sports Illustrated, upon visiting our tournament, proclaimed that, "Here (Columbia), arguably is the heartland of U.S. Soccer."
