NJ Youth Soccer Celebrates State Cups Champions with Topps

NJ Youth Soccer proudly teamed up with Topps® once again during the spring and fall seasons to celebrate its State Cups champions. Following the conclusion of NJYS State Cups competition, championship teams were offered an opportunity from Topps to receive a custom trading card featuring a team selected image.

“We are fortunate to benefit from this partnership with Topps Trading Cards,” said Evan Dabby, Executive Director of NJ Youth Soccer. “Topps has been very supportive of our initiative to celebrate each of our State Cup champions, and we love seeing the excitement on the player’s faces when we tell them that they will receive their own commemorative card to celebrate their achievement.”

This initiative continues a successful program that began in early 2017 where NJYS State Cups championship teams earned a commemorative Topps® card to recognize their achievement. The front of the card displays the team name and picture, and the back of each card shows the club logo with a team note of their personal choice. The cards possess the same quality, look and feel of the Topps® MLS cards that feature the stars of Major League Soccer.

“Our partnership with NJ Youth Soccer has become a great tradition through the celebration of NJYS State Cup champions,” said Jeff Heckman, Global Director of E-Commerce at Topps. “The designation of becoming a State Cup champion is a significant accomplishment for these players, and we are happy that Topps can help them preserve that memory through our custom trading cards.”

The National Championship Series is the country’s most prestigious national youth soccer tournament. It provides winners from each state with the opportunity to play against the best competition in the nation while emphasizing teamwork, discipline and fair play.

The Presidents Cup offers participants a platform to play against teams of similar abilities for a national title. It provides a progressive, high-level experience while focusing on competition, camaraderie and community at the state, regional and even national levels of US Youth Soccer.

The Challenge Cup (previously branded as the Commissioners Cup) is the NJYS State Cup that attracts the most teams and provides a third-tier state competition. This tournament hosts travel teams in the 11U to 19U age groups. This state-only tournament is designed to create a challenging and enjoyable event for teams that do not play in the National Championship Series or Presidents Cup.
