New Jersey Youth Soccer announced Wednesday that it will continue its ongoing partnership with Topps Trading Cards.

Through the relationship, which was launched in 2016, Topps will create custom trading cards for each of the NJ Youth Soccer State Cup championship teams.

“We are very pleased to continue this partnership with Topps Trading Cards,” Executive Director of NJ Youth Soccer Evan Dabby said in a statement. “Topps has been very supportive of our initiative to celebrate each of our State Cup champions, and their commemorative cards are a great memento for teams to remember their achievement.”

Each member of the NJ Youth Soccer National Champions Series, Presidents Cup and Commissioners Cup championship teams will receive a custom Topps trading card. The front of all cards will feature the team name with an image, while the back will include their logo and a note that is selected by team representatives. The quality, look and feel of each card will be similar to the 2017 Topps trading cards that are created for Major League Soccer.
