Gearing up for the 2019 Summer Cup


The 2019 Field Fund Summer Cup will be held on Sunday, August 25, starting at 9 am.

Sponsored by Martha’s Vineyard Bank, the event brings together soccer and sports lovers of all ages to participate in a soccer tournament celebrating recreational culture on the Island.

The tournament will take place at the West Tisbury School town fields.

Each team must have two players under 10 years old, and two players over 40 years old. 

Teams must also be co-ed, with three women on the field at any given time.

Matches are 30 minutes each, and each team will have at least three matches.

Registration is currently closed, but Field Fund co-founder Rebekah Thomson said anyone wanting to participate can show up at 8 am the morning of the event to register.

“We currently have eight teams registered, but can accommodate up to 12 teams. Some teams are spilling over, so we should be able to form more teams if additional people want to participate,” Thomson said. 

Those wanting to register can also email the Field Fund at

Registration is $100 per team. 

Game-day grub will be available courtesy of the Food Truck.
