The prestigious 2021 US Youth Soccer Midwest Presidents Cup arrives in West Chester, Ohio this week and will take to the field at Voice of America MetroPark, June 17-21, 2021.

Teams representing 13U-18U/19U age divisions have earned a spot in the 2021 US Youth Soccer Midwest Presidents Cup by qualifying through their respective state tournaments.
