EFT 2020 Note from Tournament Directors

I hope this finds you, your families, & your players ALL well & HEALTHY.  To say the least it has been a difficult 100+ days.

The Organizing Committee for the 2020 EFT has been meeting already for several months.  As of today, the Tournament is scheduled for Friday-Sunday, September 11th - 13th, the same weekend after Labor Day as always.  However, in an abundance of caution, the Committee has not yet made a final decision.

Like everyone else, we are closely monitoring all available information including Governor Murphy, New Jersey Youth Soccer, and the Townships of Livingston & West Orange along with both of their Boards of Education.  We will communicate with you again as soon as we feel we can make a fully informed decision.  Above all else we need to provide a safe environment for everyone involved.

With the expectation that NJYS moves onto Phase 5 of their Return to Play Notice and Guidelines, and therefore we are allowed to play formalized games again, we would very much appreciate your response to the following two (2) YES or NO questions.  Please simply reply to essexfalltuneup@gmail.com:

Would you participate in the 2020 EFT if it were held as expected on Friday-Sunday, September 11th-13th?
Would you be more likely to participate if the Tournament was moved to Friday-Sunday, November 20th-22nd (i.e., the weekend before Thanksgiving)?

Thank you for your prior support of the EFT.  We certainly hope to see you & your players once again this Fall.
