As a majority of Midwest states wrap up their fall soccer seasons in late October and early November, tradition is for teams to compete in the annual fall State Cup for their respective states. This years’ State Cups, particularly in Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas, had some familiar teams placing in either first or second. A grand total of 11 Academy Affiliate teams placed in their respective State Cups; 4 Sporting Iowa teams, 3 Sporting Omaha FC teams and 3 Sporting Blue Valley teams.
