The best "world cup" soccer tournament this side of South Africa returns to Lowell in just a few weeks. The ONE Lowell World Cup will take place over two weekends, on August 1, 7 and 8 at Cawley Stadium in Lowell.
If you're in the Boston area and you missed this event last year, do not miss it this year. There is some serious talent on display, and the whole weekend (or two weekends, in this case) just has a festive flavor to it. It's a great way to see superb soccer for very little money, and, of course, proceeds go to a great cause.
You can get a jump on the action by attending this Sunday evening's party for the ONE Lowell World Cup draw. It'll take place at 6pm at Garcia Brogan's Cantina, Pub & Restaurant in Lowell. The party is open to all, and Garcia Brogan's is apparently a Mexican-Irish establishment...so, really, how could you go wrong? Just don't mix your tequila with your Guinness...
I hope to see you on Sunday and then again in August in Lowell.
