Community sports roundup: Elite soccer coming to Snohomish

Snohomish’s Stocker Fields are going to be the site of some of the best youth soccer the region has to offer.

U.S. Club Soccer announced last Thursday that it has entered a four-year partnership with the Snohomish Youth Soccer Club and Snohomish County to bring its National Cup Northwest Regional to Stocker Fields.

The upcoming National Cup Northwest Regional will take place next June 26-29. It will feature boys and girls teams from the 13-under through the 19-under age groups. The event serves as a qualifier for the National Cup Finals.

The previous National Cup Northwest Regional took place at 60 Acres in Redmond.

“Snohomish County is a fantastic destination for our Northwest Regional,” US Club Soccer director of events Alexandra Rieben said in a press release. “After hosting the tournament in different locations the past few years, this partnership provides stability and allows our members to plan their competitive calendars to include this Regional. Teams will experience first-class facilities on the field and all that Snohomish County has to offer off the field.”
