The Adidas National Cup breaks new attendance record in 4th edition

Charlottesville, VA – Over 160 teams competed in the 2023 edition of The Adidas National Cup in Richmond, Va. from February 17-19 in the fourth year of the fast-growing tournament.

Featuring 34 total divisions between the boys and girls sides, The Adidas National Cup crowned 10 champions across the U12-U18/19 girls brackets and 24 champions spread throughout the U9-U18/19 boys divisions. Games were played on some of the top turf fields in Central Virginia, including the renowned River City Sportsplex and Glover Park.

This year’s tournament once again set a new record for attendance, as the event hosted by the Club Champions League (CCL) continues to grow each year. Attending teams represented a variety of high level leagues with US Youth Soccer and US Club Soccer affiliations, as well as several Canadian sides.

“The Adidas National Cup is now attracting top talent across the U.S. and Canada,” said CCL Executive Director and Adidas National Cup Director Brian Kuk. “Teams are using the event in two ways. One, as a top event with great competition to close out their club season and shift into their high school playing season (Virginia-based players). And two, as a top preseason event to kick off their spring league soccer season.”

“The feedback from the event has been tremendous, and we look forward to 2023,” Kuk concluded.

College programs from multiple levels on both the men’s and women’s sides attended the tournament, making it one of the top destinations in the Mid-Atlantic region for recruiting on the busy showcase weekend. Over 100 total college soccer programs were featured on the tournament’s official interest list ahead of the event.
