Fall Kohl's American Cup


The Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup offers recreational soccer players an opportunity to play in a high-quality tournament in a fun atmosphere, where the emphasis is placed on participation, rather than competition.

Iowa Soccer's US Youth Soccer Kohl's American Cup traditional team event, held in Altoona, for 7U-19U is a guaranteed three-game, round-robin format. Scores and standings are not kept in the 10U & below divisions, and all participants receive a participation award. In the 11U & above divisions, semifinal and final matches are held, with members of the first- and second-place teams each receiving awards.
This US Youth Soccer event is the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, boasting more than 65,000 participants. The Iowa Soccer Association has run a US Youth Soccer American Cup every year since 1992. Kohl's Department stores is the most recent national sponsor.
