Finals to determine who advances to nationals.

The Region I cup finals are this weekend at the Ukrainian American Sports Center in Horsham, Pennsylvania. Six titles are up for grab as a cumulation state and Region qualifiers that started as early as last September. The winners will go on to represent the Region in their respective national finals.

Our first championship match will be Saturday evening as the Renegades (MDCVA) and Safira FC (MA) battle for the Over-40 Cup. It will be the second final trip in a row for the Renegades who lost out to Fairfield GAC FC (CT) in penalty kicks last season.

Following the Over-40 will be the Amateur Cup for the Fritz Marth Trophy featuring 2019 champion Newtown Pride FC (CT) against NOVA FC (MDCVA). This is the first cup run for NOVA who defeated West Chester United (EPA) in the southern bracket semifinal.

Sunday morning, we kick off with the Gerhard Mengel Cup for the Over-30 Championship. This will be a replay of last season's title match between cup holders Christos FC (MD) and NY Pancyprian Freedom (ENY).

For the second year in a row, we will play the Women's Championship. Defending champion Sidekicks FC (MA) look hold off Hoboken FC 1912 (NJ).

We wrap it up with the Werner Fricker Cup for the Amateur Open Championship with West Chester United (EPA) taking on Jackson Lions FC (NJ).

Along with the finals, we also will run Men Under-23 Championship for the Gus Xikis Trophy over the weekend with that final taking place on Sunday.
