Catch Cup Fever Tonight!

Soccer in Illinois has a long and illustrious history. The State Cup dates back, in one guise or another, to 1909, when Campbell Rovers won the first competition. Back then, of course, they played in black and white.

More recently the competition has been dominated by some of Chicagos moost storied and gloried clubs: RWB Adria, CSK Waarta, AAC Eagles, and this evening's opponents, Vikings AA.

This year there are 58 teams registered, and whilst the bulk of them obviously come from the Chicagoland area, there are still from down state and out West that could provide anyone with an interesting challenge.
