The 2015 NPL Finals will be held July 9-13 at Grand Park in Westfield, Ind.
For the second consecutive year, the NPL Finals will be a stand-alone event. The 2012 and 2013 events were held alongside the National Cup Finals, the culminating event of US Club Soccer’s cup-based national championship competition.
ABOUT THE NPL FINALS:
The NPL Finals – formerly known as the NPL Champions Cup – features the champions of NPLs across the United States in the U-13 through U-18 boys and girls age groups. Teams play several group games before advancing to knock-out rounds to determine the NPL national champion in every age group.
One of the most prestigious championships in the country, the NPL Finals is the targeted destination for all NPL teams throughout the year-long, league-based competition each season.
Grand Park, located at 711 E. 191st St. in Westfield, Ind., is the largest multi-purpose youth sports complex in the country with 31 soccer fields, 26 baseball/softball diamonds and a pair of indoor facilities spanning more than 400 acres.
In June 2014, it played host to the U.S. Soccer Development Academy playoffs.
Directions: Indy and Chicago airports
