NEP UNVEILS NEW ENGLAND REGIONAL CUP COMPETITION FOR 2021

The NEP is excited to announce that for the 2020-21 competitive season we will be hosting a newly formed NEP New England Regional Cup Competition!  After speaking with our 22 member clubs across the region, we have elected to move away from the 6 individual state cup competitions and have 1 Regional Cup Competition for all 6 New England states to compete in.  The NEP New England Regional Cup is a single game elimination competition. The CHAMPIONS of each age group (U13, U14 U15, U16, U17 & U18-19) and gender will then advance to the US Club Soccer National Cup and represent our New England region!

This is a US Club Sanctioned Event open to all USSF member organizations by the application
