The Region experienced more success during the 2017 Cup season with Lansdowne Bhoys FC of Eastern New York completing a National Cup Double by winning the Fritz Marth Trophy for the US Amateur Cup and the Werner Fricker Cup, the Amateur Open Championship. It was the second consecutive year where a Region I side took both cups. In the Gerhard Mengel Cup, the National Over-30 Championship, Christos FC of Maryland reached the final. We expect another strong showing for this cup season with teams coming from 12 of our 14 State Associations.
The US Amateur Cup starts it off with first round action on 8 April that takes us to the finals at the Ukrainian American Sports Center in Horsham, Pennsylvania on 16 & 17 June. Our Region winners will then move onto the national finals.
The Region will hold a tournament for men U-23 teams the weekend of 16 & 17 June at the Ukrainian American Sport Center in Horsham, Pennsylvania. While it is expected for many of the teams to come from Region I members, the tournament is open to other USASA affiliated teams from other State Associations.
The tournament will consist of no more than 16 teams. Group play will be on Saturday, 16 June. The schedule is dependent upon the number of entries. The semifinals & final will be played on Sunday, 17 June.
Players born on or after 1 January 1995 are eligible for U23 registration.
Teams and players must be registered through their respective state association or USASA affiliated league. Youth player registration is not accepted. All youth players must be registered with USASA.
The entry fee is $375.
