For the 20th year, the Lake Norman Soccer Club will host its Lake Norman Fall Classic this Saturday and Sunday.
Each year, the event hosts about 180 teams - ranging from U9 to U18 - in local fields across Mooresville, Statesville and Huntersville.
Teams from across North Carolina as well as Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia will participate in the event. The N.C. Youth Soccer Association-sanctioned tournament has both classic and challenge divisions.
This year's tournament is expected to bring in over 6,800 attendees, and to generate at least $1.8 million in visitor spending.
