Soccer tournament organizers say bringing so many families to Tulsa also brought a substantial amount of money to the area.

Tom Wedding / Youth for Oklahoma Soccer Vice President "It's $6- $8 million of economic impact, and it's all new money from out of state," Youth for Oklahoma Soccer Vice President Tom Wedding said.

The tournament is one of the largest events for college coaches to attend to scout young players.
