Zulfikar Karimi started this petition to Gold Cup Committee

As of now, the gold cup dates for 12+ age categories are October 12th & 13th which is during the Thanksgiving Long Weekend. Although, these two dates may seem fit for many participants because it is a long weekend, it is extremely difficult for players that are currently active with their University/College teams, overseas players, and other players playing in different countries. (Ex: USA). All of these athletes will be in season during the Thanksgiving Long Weekend, and that will minimize competition tremendously. It will also reduce the number of athletes participating, as well as spectators that would be there to cheer them on.

The best and most fit solution for this problem would be to schedule Gold Cup during the same time as it was last year, which was August 3rd & 4th. This date works perfectly for everyone because it is summer time, which allows participants time to travel to the rightful destination, and competitive players would not be in season yet. In addition, that weekend is also a long weekend and offers the same number of days off as the Thanksgiving Long weekend would. 

As an athlete, for 10 years now, participating in Gold Cup I would really like for you to consider this option as it would allow for a bigger and better tournament. Friends and family can all have a great time, and enjoy it together. 

Thank you.
