A week after the NPL Finals in Colorado are the US Club National Cup XV Finals in which qualifiers from all over the United States meet to compete from U13-U17 for both boys and girls. I am proud to say 3 New Jersey teams won their National Cup flights and brought home Championship trophies. Those teams were: Marlboro SA Warriors U17B (featured image), Match Fit Academy FC 00′ Black U16B, and Jackson Red Bulls U13B. In total NJ sent 7 Boys teams (3 Champions and 2 Finalists) and 7 girls teams (2 Finalists) across the country to compete. New Jersey was well represented and this is just more evidence why we are one of the best states for soccer in the country. Congrats to everyone who participated and especially to those that went all the way to Colorado and can call themselves National Cup Champions!
