Save the dates as our Framingham United Soccer Club will be hosting our 35th annual Memorial Day Classic. This tournament is a two day format which leaves Monday to enjoy the holiday weekend. The Memorial Day Classic is a competitive tournament held each year for teams who have come from all over New England and New York. We are dedicated and strive to showcase top quality play with a strong emphasis on being good sports.
