2019 Bethesda Premier Cup Website Advertisement Information
General Information: The Bethesda Premier Cup is one of the top youth soccer tournaments in the country. The direct audience includes about 18,000 boys and girls ranging in age from 9 to 19; about 4,000 officials, including coaches, managers, referees and tournament volunteers; and at least 30,000 parents, plus siblings and other relatives, friends and fans who attend as spectators. In 2012 the Sports Management and Tourism School of Business from George Washington University did a detailed study and determined that the tournament created approximately 12 million dollars of economic impact to Montgomery County and surrounding areas.
For 2019, the Bethesda Premier Cup will be offering members of the Bethesda SC community the opportunity to earn credit towards club programs and fees through advertising opportunities through the Bethesda Premier Cup website. Our website typically generates about 30,000 page views during the tournament. Bethesda is also an active member on social media with Facebook (1,955 likes), Twitter (3000 followers and 146k Tweet Impressions monthly), Instagram (1,365 since January 2019).
While the process is optional it is a great opportunity for players and parents to positively impact our tournament while help offsetting some of their club-related costs.
