Bob Armell, the creator of the Pugg Goal, will be on-site Saturday. Bob is an inventor, adventurer, and all around great guy. Many people say that the introduction of the Pugg Goal changed the way soccer is coached and enjoyed by players in America and around the world. Some even say it’s America’s greatest soccer invention! All we know is that we are glad he did it!


So, keep an eye out for Mr Armell and his signature hat. You’re likely to see him striking up conversations with teams during their down time. Let him know how much we appreciate what’s he’s done for our game and having Pugg Goals as part of our soccer world. It’s hard to imagine it without them.


Mr Armell has brought with him one Mini-Goal for every participant in the tournament!
