CHARLESTON, S.C. (Dec. 15, 2014) - A total of 37 teams from eight NPLs have been accepted into the 2015 Jefferson Cup Boys Weekend field as part of a US Club Soccer/Jefferson Cup partnership in which special slots were allocated for NPL members.

The prestigious event is scheduled for March 6-8 in Richmond, Va. The relationship between the NPL and the Jefferson Cup provides NPL teams unique opportunities to showcase players at top level events across the country. There is a similar partnership in place with the Surf Cup in San Diego in August.

NPL teams at the Jefferson Cup will participate in the standard tournament format and compete for Jefferson Cup championships.

“The influx of NPL talent only makes the Jefferson Cup tournament field stronger,” NPL General Manager Leo Garcia said. “We’re excited for the additional opportunity these teams have to play meaningful competition in a heavily scouted environment.”

"The Jefferson Cup is looking forward to hosting a great group of NPL squads from US Club Soccer," Tournament Director John Faircloth said.
