All Saturday games at the National Cup XII Northeast Regional postponed due to heavy rains
May 24, 2013
UPDATE - May 24 - 7:45 p.m. ET - Due to the persistent rainfall in the LaGrangeville area over the past week, which is forecasted to continue through tomorrow, and the resulting flooding of fields, all games previously scheduled for Saturday, May 25, at the National Cup XII Northeast Regional in LaGrangeville, N.Y., have been postponed.
This decision was made due to player safety concerns resulting from the deteriorating field conditions.
The revised schedule for Sunday and Monday is now available. Please note that games now extend later into Monday afternoon than previously planned and that all games will play halves of the following length:
- U-11 - 30-minute halves
- U-12 through U-18/19 - 35-minute halves
No further schedule changes can be accomodated due to the limited availabilities of both fields and time slots.
Team registration will take place on Sunday 60-90 minutes prior to each team’s first game at the US Club Soccer tent at the fields.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.

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.
