FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The boys and girls Conference 5A Region 1 soccer regional semifinal and final rounds will be moved from the Scharbauer Sports Complex in Midland to the Birdville ISD Fine Arts and Athletics Complex (FAAC) in North Richland Hills, the University Interscholastic League announced Wednesday.

“Although arrangements for this regional tournament have been in place for more than a year, the unique circumstance of having all eight qualifying teams for the tournament hailing from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex caused this re-evaluation”, said Dr. Mark Cousins, UIL Director of Athletics. “In an effort to reduce travel costs for school districts, and minimize loss of school time for student participants, we determined it would be in the best interests of our member schools to relocate this regional tournament.”

After discussions with the sites involved, a decision was made to move the regional tournaments for this year. The Midland Scharbauer Sports Complex will be the scheduled host for the regional soccer tournaments during the 2014-2015 school year.

Times and dates will remain the same, to see an updated bracket go to: http://www.uiltexas.org/soccer/playoff-brackets. For more information about the regional sites go to: http://www.uiltexas.org/soccer/regional-sites.
