BLAINE, Minn. (July 13, 2014) – Championship games for all divisions of the 30th Schwan’s USA CUP Weekend Tournament were completed on Sunday, July 13.
This year’s tournament features a record turnout of 1,060 teams from 21 states and 19 countries, making it the largest youth soccer tournament in the Western Hemisphere. The weekend and week-long tournaments together will generate an estimated $20.4 million in economic impact.
During this year’s Weekend Tournament, Schwan’s USA CUP is hosting two special invitation-only tournaments, in the boys’ U14 and girls’ U16 divisions. Called the Super Elite division, these divisions offered the highest level of soccer during the weekend tournament.
It was a great Weekend Tournament for Minnesota and Wisconsin teams, with Minnesota capturing seven championships and Wisconsin four. Iowa and Illinois were the other U.S. states to win titles.
