2015 Jefferson Cup to feature at least 13 of 14 reigning Virginia State Cup champions
Glen Allen, Va. (Via Richmond Strikers) – The Richmond Strikers have begun accepting select teams for the 2015 Jefferson Cup on a rolling basis, and so far have admitted 13 of the 14 reigning Virginia Youth Soccer Association State Cup champions from 2014.
All six Virginia State Cup champions from the U12-U14 event held in the spring have applied and been accepted for the upcoming Jefferson Cup, along with seven of the eight U15-U18 champions crowned in early November. Additionally, 31 of the 32 Final Four teams from the fall State Cup will be heading to Richmond in March 2015.
Many of these teams are not only the best in the state, but among the premier group of teams in the country,” said Richmond Strikers Tournament Director John Faircloth. “The competition at this year’s State Cup was exceptional once again, and it’s great for Jefferson Cup to have such strong representation from our home state.”
The Jefferson Cup top brackets will be released in a special announcement at the upcoming NSCAA Convention held in Philadelphia from January 14-18. A full list of accepted teams will also be released in January on the tournament website, SoccerWire.com and via social media. The 2015 Jefferson Cup will take place over three weekends in March throughout the Richmond, Va. area.
