Teams Advance to Southern Presidents Cup

The 2018 Florida Presidents Cup Finals

By: Jared White

Every season, soccer teams look for the opportunity to face against some of the best opponents in the state. Most of these teams look to the FYSA Championship Series to see what is available. This championship series is comprised of Florida Commissioner's Cup, Florida Presidents Cup, and Florida State Cup. The 2017/2018 soccer season marks the second year of this program. Over 380 teams applied for the Florida Presidents Cup, with only one team being crowned champion per age group.

Each team started Presidents Cup in February, competing at sites in Palm Bay, Lakewood Ranch, Fort Myers, and more. After two months of exciting gameplay, the Final Four teams set their sights on the championship finals.

The 56 finalists traveled to the Lake Myrtle Sports Park in Auburndale on April 28/29, 2018 for a thrilling conclusion to all age groups. Teams played on Saturday to determine the championship games on Sunday. Each game was a wonderful matchup that displayed the very best from each region. In the end, the following teams were crowned as the 2018 Florida Presidents Cup Champions:


  • U12 = Coral Estates Juventus
  • U13 = Warner ASG
  • U14 = South Orlando SC
  • U15 = Miami Stars
  • U16 = Cape Coral Cyclones
  • U17 = FC Tampa Newcastle
