FRISCO, Texas (October 3, 2023) – US Youth Soccer's Eastern Regional events will be returning to West Virginia in 2024, the organization announced on Tuesday.
Shawnee Sports Complex in Charleston, West Virginia, and the Barboursville Soccer Complex in Barboursville, West Virginia will host the 2024 Eastern Presidents Cup from June 14-18 and the Eastern Regional Championships from June 27-July 3.
US Youth Soccer will hold a year-long celebration of its 50th anniversary in 2024.
The East Region will return to West Virginia after most recently holding its events in the Mountain State in 2022. Charleston’s facility is home to six collegiate-sized artificial turf fields, while multi-million dollar renovations to Barboursville’s complex will add three multi-purpose turf fields to a facility that already included 12 full-size regulation grass fields.
“One of the great strengths of our regional competitions is to bring together incredible facilities, tremendous amenities and localized support, helping our qualifying teams raise the bar on competitive excellence,” said US Youth Soccer CEO Skip Gilbert. “As USYS moves through its 50th year, we thank all the great hosts of the past and ask them to celebrate with this dynamic slate of regional sites that will help secure Presidents Cup and our National Championships as the best our country has to offer.”
US Youth Soccer’s National Championship Series and Presidents Cup continue to serve as significant sources of revenue for local economies. Each event will field more than 100 teams, bringing more than 5,000 people and generating an estimated economic impact of $4,200,000 across each city.
