Bradenton, Florida – July 2021 – Team IP event teams descended on the Premier Sports Campus in Bradenton, FL this week for the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships where more than 2,000 soccer players from across the country will compete in the culmination of the 2021 season.
The U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships is the most prestigious soccer tournament for athletes 19 and under in the country. The national championships officially started on Tuesday. The finals for players aged 13 and under are scheduled for Friday, and the championship game for 14 to 19-year-old athletes will be Sunday. Between 3,500 and 5,000 people are expected to make appearances on Premier's fields over the course of the week — mostly parents and grandparents of the more than 2,000 participating athletes.
