Just a quick reminder that submissions for the 3rd Soccer/Football Carnival are due in by Sunday August 13th (3PM GMT) to be published here at On The Pitch August 14th.

Also, the 4th American Soccer Carnival will be dedicated to the US Open Cup, to be published August 21st at My Soccer Blog. Mike H elaborates:

The Open Cup is the oldest soccer tournament in the US (and one of the oldest in the world), yet is treated as an after thought to an after thought by the media and teams alike. What I wonder is what can be done to make it better?

On the flip side, if you feel that the cup should fade away to the Levi P. Morton part of history, feel free to explain your reasons why this should be so.

Submissions for the 4th American Soccer Carnival are due Friday, August 18th.

UPDATE: The 3rd Soccer/Football Carnival has been posted.
