FRISCO, Texas (July 31, 2014) — US Youth Soccer is proud to announce the dates and locations for the Regional and National Championships of the 2015 US Youth Soccer National Championship Series, the country’s oldest and most prestigious national youth soccer tournament. After another banner year in 2014, the 2015 US Youth Soccer National Championships will be held at the Mohawk Soccer Complex in Tulsa, Okla.
“We are excited to host the 2015 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Tulsa, Okla., and look forward to working with the Oklahoma Soccer Association and the complex staff,” said John Sutter, President of US Youth Soccer. “Each year, more than 10,000 teams play in our National Championship Series as teams test their development and skill; earning their way from state to regional events, with the ultimate goal of earning a ticket to the US Youth Soccer National Championships. The event continues to get better each year, and we expect Tulsa to help make the 2015 National Championships a great experience for the players.”
The US Youth Soccer National Championships will consist of US Youth Soccer Regional Champions in the Under-13 through Under-19 Boys and Girls age groups as well as the US Youth Soccer National League qualifiers in the Under-14 through Under-18 Boys and Girls age groups to complete the field of 96 teams.
Each year brings about new challenges and highlights the motivation and commitment of these youth as they continue pursuing their dreams of being one of the best youth soccer teams in the United States. The National Championships are the final stage of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series and open to any US Youth Soccer member. The U.S. Soccer Federation initiated the open youth championships with the James P. McGuire Cup, the oldest trophy in youth sport, (Under-19 Boys) in 1935 and the tradition continues in 2015 with the McGuire Cup’s 80th anniversary.
Annually, the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series provides the nation's top collegiate coaches with the premier stage to identify and scout the most coveted players in the country. In 2014, more than 700 coaches attended the US Youth Soccer Regional and National Championships.
