A Small Town Team with Big Dreams:
Napa Soccer Team Earns a Spot in Nationals
The Napa United 1839 Academy
U14 Boys team dug deep in 100 degree weather to win every game and take US Club Soccer’s West Regional Tournament.
Now they will advance to the XVIII National Cup Finals
held July 20-24th at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado - where they will compete against only 5 other Regional winners for the title of the best team in the country.
Travel to national competitions is costly. Participating in tournaments such as this one helps these boys on their life path to success - from college to professional play and beyond. We want to make sure every boy has the opportunity to take part in this life-changing experience.
These teenage boys will need LOTS of food and preferably a hotel with laundry facilities. Yet we only have a couple of weeks to raise funds.Help send our rising stars to Nationals. Put Napa United 1839 on the map.
