Medford, Ore. -- A soccer tournament will draw thousands of people to the Rogue Valley this Memorial Day weekend.

The Rogue Memorial Challenge will be at South Medford's U.S. Cellular Field from Saturday through Memorial Day.

About 150 teams are playing.

That means local businesses, particularly hotels, will be getting a big boost.

We checked with numerous hotels in the area and they tell us they too are booked solid this weekend.

Some teams are even staying in Yreka.
