US Club Soccer is returning its 2017 national championship events - 2017 NPL Finals and National Cup XVI Finals - to Grand Park in Westfield.

The 2017 NPL Finals were slated for July 13-17. The NPL finals are the targeted destination for all U-13 through U-18 boys and girls NPL teams throughout the country, as the culminating event of year-long, league-based competition.

The National Cup XVI Finals, which will take place July 21-24, is the closing event of US Club Soccer's 16th annual cup-based national championship. Competition teams in 13-U through 18/19-U age groups advance to the National Cup XVI Finals by winning a National Cup XVI Regional event or through qualifying state cups. National titles are awarded in two competitive divisions: Super Group and Premier Group.

Grand Park's 31 soccer fields, 26 baseball/softball diamonds and a pair of indoor facilities spanning more than 400 acres are the perfect spot for national championships. Annually, Grand Park receives about 1.5 million visitors. US Club Soccer hosted the 2015 NPL Finals and National Cup XIV Finals two summers ago. This year's finals features 154 teams and is expected to draw over 7,850 spectators.

"Participating at our Finals events is a great accomplishment, and Grand Park provides a rewarding, national championship atmosphere for those deserving teams," US Club Soccer CEO Kevin Payne said. "Grand Park was an ideal facility last year and, as it continues to grow, it will be even better next year."

Recent national championship host cities include: Chicago (2012); Aurora, Colorado (2013 and 2016); Greensboro, N.C. (2014) and Westfield (2015).

Proudly celebrating its 16th year as US Club Soccer's cup-based national championship competition, the National Cup XVI aims to grow on the success of its 15 predecessors when it concludes with the National Cup XVI Finals at Grand Park.

US Club Soccer is a National Association member of the U.S. Soccer Federation. Its goal is "to foster the growth and development of soccer clubs in order to create the best possible development environment for players of all ages."

Anchored by Players First and its five pillars of Club Development, Coaching Development, Player Development, Parent Engagement & Education and Player Health & Safety, US Club Soccer offers registration, league- and cup-based competition platforms, player identification and a variety of other programming, resources and services.

College coaches will be attending the finals to scout upcoming talent. Games will begin at Grand Park fields Friday July 21 and continue throughout the weekend, concluding on Monday, July 24. A full schedule can be found at www.grandpark.org.
