Hundreds of soccer players are traveling to Bend this weekend to participate in the second annual Bend Premier Cup. Bend's own soccer tournament draws players from all over the west. John O'Sullivan, the Director of Oregon Rush, the soccer club, which started the tournament: “Well, we're real excited. We've grown from 85 teams last year to 145 teams this year, so massive growth. There are teams from Oregon, Washington, Nevada, California and Idaho, converging on Bend for the next two to three days.” O'Sullivan estimates there will be between 4,000 to 5,000 people in Bend for the Premier Cup this weekend. The 282 games will be played on six fields around town and will wrap up on Sunday.
