Eight teams from four clubs win Minnesota US Club Cup titles
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.”
