May 9, 2019 – An estimated 10,000 soccer players and their families will be visiting Midland this weekend as the Midland Soccer Club hosts its 37th annual Midland Invitational Tournament. Tournament play begins Friday, May 10 at 5:30 p.m. and continues through the weekend, wrapping up late afternoon on Sunday, May 12.

Traffic is expected to be heavy in the area of the Midland Soccer Complex all weekend long. The Midland Police Department (MPD) will monitor traffic at Jefferson Avenue and Joe Mann Boulevard to assist with traffic congestion issues throughout the weekend.

MPD suggests alternate travel routes to and from the Midland Soccer Complex including using the following roads:

  •  Eastman Avenue, Commerce Drive and N. Jefferson Avenue;
  •  Waldo Avenue and Diamond Drive, east of the complex.

All other motorists should also consider alternate routes to the Midland Mall area this weekend, including Eastman Avenue, Airport Road, Waldo Avenue, and Monroe Road. Please remember that Airport Road is reduced to one traffic lane from Hicks Road to Perrine Road at this time.

Drive safely, have patience, plan your travel routes and enjoy the tournament!
