Showcase Hotel Rules & Reservation Procedures

Dear Club Directors/Team Coaches:

The Force Adidas Premier Showcase (Showcase) Committee would like to make your participation in our 2014 event the most exciting and enjoyable experience of the summer.  Additionally, we would like to welcome you to Cupertino, California, the technology hub of the Silicon Valley.   Cupertino is centrally located in the South Bay with San Francisco and Santa Cruz just a few minutes drive away from experiencing a “world class city” or a “great coastal resort destination.” 



In order to ensure adequate lodging for teams traveling to our Showcase, we have worked with local hotels to reserve blocks of rooms at reasonable rates.  TRAVELING TEAMS (COACHES, PLAYERS, & PARENTS) ARE REQUIRED TO STAY AT SHOWCASE HOTELS AND MUST BOOK BY USING THE GROUP CODE OR BOOKING LINK PROVIDED (TEAMS TRAVELING LESS THEN 80 MILES ARE NOT REQUIRED TO STAY IN A HOTEL). 

Teams traveling into the Cupertino and greater South Bay Area are required to stay in hotels that are approved by the Showcase as a condition of participation.

  The Showase is a "Stay and Play" event.  The Showcase has established the following 2014 hotel reservation procedures:

 

ONCE YOUR TEAM HAS BEEN ACCEPTED INTO THE SHOWCASE, you will need to reserve your hotel rooms.  This page provides a list of hotels, their descrptions, and related photos.  Once you determine the hotel of interest, click on the "CLICK HERE" link on the next page to obtain instructions on how to contact the hotel to process your reservation.  Some hotels will have a toll free number with a discount code, others will instruct you to contact the property directly.  Call the hotel directly using the phone number from the list; do not use reservation services or hotel chain reservation numbers unless indicated. If indicated, ask for the contact from this list by name. Be sure and mention Force Adidas Premier Showcase to ensure you are booking within the Showcase block.

  Again, all teams must book inside the Force Adidas Premier Showcase room block at the approved hotels listed on the "Hotels & Rates" tab/page. Teams are not allowed to use questionable and/or uncertain third party discount web sites (e.g. Travelocity, Priceline, and etc.).  

Once you have made your reservation, send an email to the Showcase Direcctor, David Burgee, dburgee@forceadidaspremier.com.  Please provide the following information:

1) Team Name; 2) Age Group; 3) Administrative Contact Person and Email Address/Phone Number; 4) Name of Hotel where you will be staying, along with confirmation number;  and 5) Number of Rooms you have booked for your respective team...please provide a complete rooming list of coaches, players, and parents who are associated with your team.

The hotel will finalize your reservation and complete all arrangements including deposits, rooming list, and payment arrangements. Please note, the hotels all have different cancellation, deposit, and reservation requirements.  Be sure you understand their policies prior to booking.


We look forward to seeing your team at the Showcase!

Yours in soccer,
