United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA)
The U.S. Adult Soccer Association, which relocated their headquarters to Toyota Park, Bridgeview, Ill., in 2011, is responsible for developing the sport for players over the age of 19. Within the USASA, local clubs are affiliated with leagues which, in turn, are affiliated with their state associations. A competitive and recreational oriented organization, the USASA helps develop adult amateur soccer for both men and women on a national basis.
As part of that development, the USASA stages the annual National Cup Finals, which features champions from each of the four U.S. Soccer regions (Regions I, II, III and IV) squaring off in 6 different competitions. The USASA also organizes national tournaments for Veterans and Co-Ed teams.
The USASA, in association with the U.S. Soccer Federation, helps stage the annual Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, the oldest annual team tournament in the United States, which dates back to 1914, when the Brooklyn Field Club won the first national title by defeating the Brooklyn Celtics in Pawtucket, R.I.
