To ensure the quality of service provided during our tournaments, the Sarasota Cup has appointed HBC as the official Hospitality Service for all of our events. All teams are mandated to book any hotel reservations through HBC to ensure their place in our tournaments. Any teams that do not comply will be at risk of forfeiting their acceptance.

Some of the reasons for booking through HBC:


  • Established and professional housing company
  • HBC has prebooked and blocked out specific hotels that are convenient to the field locations.
  • HBC has negotiated discounted rates at these hotels specifically for the Sarasota Cup.


HBC has assisted our event before and will take good care of your group.  If you are in need of hotel rooms, please contact them directly at 505-346-0522.  The professional team at HBC Event Services will be able to get you into approved hotels, close to the fields, and take care of everything the team may need.  Please remember that you may not book any hotel rooms until your team has been accepted into this event.
