Premier Cup Boys - Powered by Under Armour

Sponsored by Under Armour and established in 2010, this event is a great pre-season opportunity for boys ranging from U09 to U12! The top teams in the country come from Regions 1, 2, 3, and 4 to play in Northern Virginia on over 50 turf fields and 10 Bermuda fields. The U.S. Soccer Mentor Program brings in top referees, allowing players to experience officiating from some of the best in the country. Striving to be the top of their brackets, and competing for awesome Champion and Finalist medals, boys on U09 to U15 teams play in a championship format. Boys on U16 to U19 teams highlight their talents on the field in showcase games, giving the attending college coaches the chance to scout for their next collegiate superstar.
