Motor City Madness Tournament Information

This Saturday and Sunday is Michigan Elite's Motor City Madness tournament.  It is a two day tournament taking place at Ultimate Soccer Arena, Blue Water Sports Center and also Elite Sportsplex on Sunday.  

Parking at Ultimate Soccer: Parking at Ultimate Soccer is located across several lots adjacent to and in close proximity to the facility.  Click here for a map of available parking and shuttles. Shuttles will be available from the two parking lots across the street from Ultimate Soccer (yellow lots - 5 & 6 on the map) - parking in non-designated areas or on any grass areas will result in being ticketed and towed.  As parking lots adjacent to the facility fill, traffic will be directed to the additional lots across the street.  Please carpool as much as possible.

Once the front parking lot at Ultimate Soccer fills, there will be a drop-off area at the rear entrance available only for any individuals who need special assistance.  Traffic flow into this area will be controlled and limited.

Please carpool if possible and plan on arriving early to allow plenty of time to find parking and enter the building.
