Pepsi is kicking off the summer by asking soccer fans in California to bring their skills to the Pepsi Clasico de Calle street soccer tournament. Fans can log on to miPepsi.com through July 14 to register for a chance to become one of five players on the 2012 Pepsi Calle All Stars team. The Pepsi Clasico de Calle is being hosted by five cities -- Bakersfield, Fresno, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose.
The Pepsi Clasico de Calle is the first tournament where the "best of the best" in street soccer come out and show off their dribbling abilities, freestyle skills and technique. The tournament's celebrity judges include soccer personality and model Temryss Lane, Los Angeles Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez, and Mexican soccer legend Claudio Suarez. The five winners of the tournament who will make up the Pepsi Calle All Stars will be announced later this summer at the 2012 AT&T MLS All Star Game.
The Pepsi Clasico de Calle debuted in Bakersfield on June 3 and San Diego on June 10 to more than 500 fans and 90 street soccer players who demonstrated that they have what it takes to be part of the Pepsi Calle All Stars. The tournament's next stops are Los Angeles on June 16-17, Fresno on June 30, and San Jose on July 14-15.
