US Youth Soccer Target United Cup kicks off for the Fall 2017 season


FRISCO, Texas (August 18, 2017) – US Youth Soccer is proud to announce the Fall 2017 schedule for the Target United Cup, a unique tournament experience for recreational players.

The Target United Cup is open to players registered with US Youth Soccer State Association-affiliated recreational leagues. Every Target United Cup event will contain various features, such as player hydration stations, welcome bags and hospitality ambassadors, which will each produce a one-of-a-kind experience.

With 21 events in place for the fall, the inaugural Target United Cup event is set to occur Aug. 19-20 at the Marshall Park Soccer Complex in Ontario, Ohio. The full fall schedule can be viewed in the table below.

The Target United Cup philosophy rests in granting all players equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play in the sport of soccer. All players have the right to participate in the game in order to develop and exhibit their skills while enjoying themselves. The Target United Cup format provides players with a developmental opportunity by emphasizing participation, as opposed to competition in a family-centered environment.
