WARRINGTON, Pa. (CBS) – From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, a round-robin soccer tournament is being held in Warrington, Pennsylvania to benefit Operation Homefront, a national non-profit which helps military families.

Kids ages seven through 15 play on teams of six all throughout the day.

“Each team plays three games minimum, and from those three games, it’s just a complete round robin,” one of the hosts of the Soccer 4 Soldiers tournament, Michael Price of the Warrington Soccer Club, said. “You’ll play for like 20-minutes, and there’s no coaching, there’s no refs, it’s the kids playing for fun for such a good cause.”

The event is being held at IPW Park on Bradley Road in Warrington.

Price says money raised will provide financial assistance to deployed soldiers, disabled veterans, and the families of deceased veterans.

Last year, the event raised $30,000 through registration fees, concession stands and donations from the community.
