EAST WINDSOR, N.J. ― New Jersey Youth Soccer is teaming up with Topps to celebrate its State Cups champions again.

Each member of NJ Youth Soccer National Championship Series, Presidents Cup and Commissioners Cup championship teams will receive a custom trading card featuring a team selected image.

This initiative follows a successful launch last season where NJ Youth Soccer teams earned a commemorative Topps card to remember their achievement. The front of the card will have the team name and picture, and the back of each card will be the club logo with a team note of their choice to commemorate their crowning achievement. The cards will possess the same quality, look and feel of the 2017 Topps MLS cards that feature the stars from Major League Soccer.

At the top of NJ Youth Soccer State Cups competition is the National Championship Series, which is the country’s most prestigious national youth soccer tournament. The National Championship Series winners from each state have the opportunity to showcase their soccer skills against the best competition in the nation while emphasizing teamwork, discipline and fair play.

The Presidents Cup is a national tournament that is designed to create a high-level competition for teams that are looking to play against teams of similar abilities, where those teams that advance will play for a regional or possibly a national title.

The Commissioners Cup is a tournament that was successfully introduced this past year and hosts travel teams in the Under-11 to U-14 age groups in the fall, with the U-15 and U-16 age groups participating in the spring/summer. This state-only tournament is designed to create a challenging and enjoyable event for teams that do not play in the National Championship Series or Presidents Cup.
