It takes a special venue to host the NPL Champions Cup.
From July 18-22, champions of each of the 17 National Premier Leagues will converge on one location for five days of competition to determine national champions.
What's more, the event is held alongside the National Cup XII Finals, meaning more than 200 top teams from across the country will need room to play and prepare.
That's where Aurora Sports Park comes in. The facility in suburban Denver will serve as the host for the 2013 NPL Champions Cup and National Cup XII Finals, and it is no stranger to big events, having held the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) National Championships in 2011.
