FRISCO, Texas (August 18, 2022) – Earlier this week, US Youth Soccer announced its regional host locations for the 2023 Presidents Cup and is now excited to announce its regional host locations for the 2023 National Championship Series, with Boise, Idaho, the sole location to host the event for a second consecutive year.
The National Championship Series and its long history, which will be celebrating its 49th anniversary, are a significant source of revenue for local economies. Each regional location will host more than 100 teams, with each player expected to be accompanied by two additional people.
- Eastern Regional Championships: Loudoun County, Virginia (June 23-29, 2023)
- Midwest Regional Championships: St. Louis, Missouri (June 23-28, 2023)

“We are eager to bring USYS National Championship Series Regionals to these locations next summer,” said USYS CEO Skip Gilbert. “We want to ensure that every element of our nation’s oldest and most prestigious national youth tournament is memorable to participants and their families. Baton Rouge, Boise, St. Louis, and Loudoun County will prove to be fantastic hosts, delivering perfect venues and will add to the rich history of this compelling competition.”
Boys and girls teams in the 13U-19U age groups will earn entry into the Regional Championships after successfully competing at the state association level, where they will then vie for a spot at the 2023 US Youth Soccer National Championships.
