Two soccer tournaments hit Sheridan this weekend. That means a big influx of tourist dollars for the city.
The Wyoming high school soccer regionals kick off Thursday night at Sheridan High School.
But that's nothing compared to the Big Horn Soccer Cup that starts on Saturday.
One-hundred-eighteen teams, ages 8-14, from KOTA Territory will converge on the city for two days of play.
Organizers say that could mean between 5,000 and 6,000 visitors.
Hotels and shops will see huge benefits from the burst of tourism, but for some, it might be hard to keep up.
"From the restaurants' standpoint, it can be a bit overwhelming," said Sheridan Travel and Tourism director Penny Becker, "but who's going to turn away great business? And we have great offerings as far as our restaurants and lodgings."
The eighth annual Big Horn Soccer Cup kicks off the first of 225 games Saturday morning at the Big Horn Equestrian Center south of Sheridan.
