Two District 230 girls soccer teams, Andrew and Stagg, opened play in the final PepsiCo Showdown, on Saturday, April 6, at Olympic Park in Schaumburg.

Do not worry, soccer fans: The tournament itself is not going anywhere. But it is being re-branded.

For the past 17 years, the event was open to boys soccer teams, and in 2008 to both boys and girls teams. After this event, which features hundreds of schools, wraps up on April 14, the soccer tournament will be a fraction of something even bigger: the PepsiCo Showdown Series.
