The Soccer Youth All-American Golden Cup showcase event once again capped a successful year at Paradise Coast Sports Complex, ringing out 2023 with over 500 players from 250 clubs in 38 states – as well as players/coaches representing 17 countries – visiting Collier County from around the country.
The All-American Golden Cup comprises the best players from Soccer Youth’s All-American Series. Players can choose between the East Version held in Naples, or the West Version in Mesa, AZ. From there, players are selected for the All-American Super Cup and earn the recognition as one of the “NATION’S BEST PLAYERS” for the year.
“This was the fourth time that Paradise Coast Sports Complex has hosted the Golden Cup, Soccer Youth’s premier event that takes place every year from late December through New Years’ and brings players together from across the world,” said Max Hammond III, Director of Soccer Youth. “Players are placed onto 7v7 teams to compete for the Golden Cup Championship. Paradise Coast Sports Complex is the best facility in the country, and Naples continues to be the perfect place to host our event.”
Athletes competing in the 2023 All-American Golden Cup competed in at least four games during their stay in Naples, along with player evaluation sessions and opportunity to participate in the Player Card Combine and selected skills challenges like Sharp Shooter, Goalkeeper Wars, and more.
“We are proud to partner with Soccer Youth every year to produce their All-American Golden Cup here at Paradise Coast Sports Complex,” said Adrian Moses, PCSC General Manager. “The All-American Golden Cup concludes a very busy December and outstanding 2023 for our staff, and I am delighted that we once again could deliver such a fantastic event to the Paradise Coast.”
