For 16 qualifying NPLs throughout the country, the 2018 Girls NPL Finals represents the coveted destination of year-long, league-based competition. Participating teams will play group stage games before advancing to semifinals and finals for the rights to call themselves NPL champions.
“We’ve hosted our championship events in several locations over the years, but Aurora, Colorado – in particular – is one of the most popular destinations among our members,” said Leo Garcia, NPL General Manager and US Club Soccer Vice President of Competitions. “As girls NPL teams begin their fall seasons, we wish them success on and off the field.”
The 2018 ENPL National Championships for 14-U through 17-U boys teams – to be held July 13-14 – will be played alongside the 2018 Girls NPL Finals at Aurora Sports Park.
