BLAINE, Minn. (Via US Club Soccer) – Eight teams from four clubs secured 2017 Minnesota US Club Cup championships this past week and now turn their attentions to the fast-approaching National Cup XVI Midwest Regional.

The fourth annual Minnesota US Club Cup, held May 26-29, featured a total of 31 teams competing in 12-U through 17-U boys and girls age groups. Minnesota TwinStars Academy fared especially well on the boys side, as it claimed 12-U boys, 14-U boys and 17-U boys championships. Rev SC Academy Black (12-U girls and 15-U girls) and Eclipse Select MN (14-U girls and 16-U girls) split the girls brackets.

All games were played at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minn. – the world’s largest amateur sports facility. “We were proud to host the Minnesota US Club Cup for the fourth year in a row,” said tournament director Clinton LaBeau. “The winners in each division earned free entry to the National Cup XVI Midwest Regional in Illinois, which was a huge incentive for these teams.”

Here are the 2017 Minnesota US Club Cup winners:

12-U: Minnesota TwinStars Academy Rev SC Academy Black
13-U: St. Paul Blackhawks FC
14-U: Minnesota TwinStars Academy Eclipse Select MN
15-U: Rev SC Academy Black
16-U: Eclipse Select MN
17-U: Minnesota TwinStars Academy

Up next for these 2017 Minnesota US Club Cup winners is the National Cup XVI Midwest Regional, June 23-26 in Chicago. Champions of this regional event then move on to the National Cup XVI Finals, July 21-24 in Westfield, Ind.
