Since its inception in 1990, the Challenge Cup has been a regular stop for many of Ontario’s top club teams. Indeed, the tournament has grown substantially each year. The key factors that keep teams coming back are easily identified: outstanding facilities & fields situated in a beautiful beachfront park, a chance for the whole family to get away to cottage country, on-site camping, the charm of Peterborough, plenty of places to go between games and, of course, a top quality soccer event. The 2024 tournament promises to be the best Challenge Weekend yet.
