Who are we?
The San Diego International Sister Cities Association (SanDISCA) is excited and proud to present the Inaugural SanDISCA Binational Sister City All Star Soccer Tournament between San Diego and Tijuana.
Over 60 years ago, President Dwight Eisenhower proposed the idea of a national sister city program believing that the connecting cities and people would build stronger international relations between nations and build trust for a more peaceful world.
Through sports diplomacy, high school athletes (both boys and girls) from both Tijuana and San Diego will start to build a strong cultural relationship.
San Diego has 16 Sister Cities and Tijuana has 22 of it's own

In this year of the World Cup, we are inspired to recreate this feeling of universal brotherhood through the joy of athletic competition. Downtown San Diego and Tijuana are less than 25 miles away from each other. We are geographically, environmentally, historically, culturally bound. We are in fact sister cities. Sports breaks barriers, build bridges and new relationships. That is the hope for these games.
Our goal is to expand this tournament to include other SIster Cities, such as Panama City, Panama, Yokohama Japan and Jeonju Korea.
We have financial support from The Coleman Foundation, Cross Border Express and the La Jolla Rotarians. We have sponsorships from San Diego Sockers Team and San Diego Soccer City.
