FULLERTON, CA (July 2, 2010) - Following the conclusion of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series Far West Regionals and the Region IV Presidents Cup competitions this past week, Cal South announced it was donating over $150,000 in subsidies to its total of thirteen teams attending the National Finals of both events, as well as aiding its pair of U23 teams heading for the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) U23 National Cup. (The adult team subsidies will be made in conjunction with the USASA). The $150,000 figure also includes whatever entry fees needed to be made for qualifiers for these events, and pushes Cal South's total dedication to its participating teams this year to well over $350,000. Cal South previously donated over $210,000 in late May to 47 youth and 7 adult teams attending the regional championships for these events.

Cal South will provide $10,000 each to its seven teams (U14 to U19) attending the 2010 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Overland Park, Kansas from July 18-25, 2010. Four of the Cal South teams just won championship trophies at the US Youth Soccer Far West Regionals, while the remaining three teams earned their spots via their play in the US Youth Soccer National League competition.

Cal South will also donate $10,000 to each of its six teams (U14 to U17) that just captured championships at the US Youth Soccer Region IV Presidents Cup, and who will now head to the US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup to be held in Murfreesboro, Tennessee from July 8-11, 2010.

An additional $4500 each will be given to the two Under-23 teams which will travel to Overland Park, Kansas for the USASA U23 National Cup from July 23-25, 2010. The adult subsidies will be given to the teams directly via the USASA in conjunction with Cal South.

Often considered "the ultimate in membership benefits" to leagues and clubs in Cal South, these donations are made annually in order to ease the burden of traveling expenses for these teams as they compete for a spot in their respective championships. All of the funds for these donations are derived from entry fees gathered at the Cal South State Cup, National Cup and Adult State Cup competitions.

As they did for the regional versions of these events, live scoring updates for all three national championship events will appear on www.CalSouth.com as they occur.
