Fourteen champions crowned at the 2011-12 New York Cup
Fourteen teams from nine different clubs claimed 2011-12 New York Cup championships as the event came to a close May 20 at the HBC Soccer Park in Melville, N.Y., where champions were crowned in U-9 through U-14 boys and girls divisions.
A record total of 360 teams participated in the third annual New York Cup, US Club Soccer’s state championship event for member teams. Group play began in September, with the top teams advancing to the knockout stage in the spring.
"The 2011-12 New York Cup was a tremendous experience for all those who participated as the event continues to grow and evolve,” said New York Club Soccer League President Gary Grossman. “As a reflection of that growth, next year's New York Cup will offer U-9 through U-18 age groups. We are confident that the format and the high level of competition will continue to encourage teams to apply and participate in future New York Cups.”
Leading the way with four titles was World Class FC, while HBC and Manhattan SC each won a pair of championships. World Class FC ’99 earned a New York Cup title for the third consecutive year, while Manhattan SC Boys ’01 Titans defended its 2010-11 title.
