Soccer Fields at Galway Downs

Welcome Letter
Welcome to Galway Downs, we are a 242 Acre equestrian facility, located in Temecula Wine Country.  We have 39 acres of grass Polo Fields where we also host athletic tournaments, including soccer.  We are proud to host Cal South’s National and State Cup, as well as, many tournaments and league play for the U.S. Soccer Development Academy, Coast Soccer League and the Southern California Soccer Development League.
Parking for is $10 per car per day, of which 10% of this fee goes to Manzanita Ranch (501(c)(3), which provides therapeutic horse rides for veterans and first responders suffering from PTSD.  The balance is used to help offset our water and field maintenance costs, which exceed $600k per year and to provide Athletic Trainers and EMTs. 
Thank You,
Management

  4. DON’T BE “THAT PARENT.”  We appreciate that this is State Cup and both the players and parents have worked really hard to get here, but don’t be that one parent/fan that is disrespectful.  Be positive and support your player(s) and understand that the Cal South Code of Conduct (read it here) will be enforced at Galway Downs.
