AURORA, Colo. (Via US Club Soccer) – Twenty-two champions were awarded after Tuesday’s title matches of the National Cup XVII Finals, the culminating event of US Club Soccer’s cup-based national competition.

A total of 206 teams from 144 clubs were represented across 35 states, stretching from Hawaii to Maine. They converged at Aurora Sports Park, July 20-24, all vying to ultimately hold the Doug Hamilton Memorial Trophy. This past weekend marked the conclusion of a challenging journey for these participating teams, as all qualified through a National Cup XVII Regional or qualifying state cup competition.

The 17th annual National Cup Finals saw the largest tournament field in the event’s history, featuring group play across 22 divisions with Super Groups (most competitive) and Premier Groups for the 13-U through 18/19-U age groups, before entering the knock-out round.

In a balanced result that represented the parity of the National Cup XVII Finals knockout rounds, no club had multiple champions, although the GPS conglomerate captured two titles – from GPS Maine and GPS New Hampshire. GPS had three more finalists representing Charlotte, Maine and New Hampshire, while STA and Eclipse SC had two finalists apiece. NEFC captured one championship and two runners-up trophies, while Apple Valley SC and South Shore Select each clinched one gold and silver finish.
