The State Cup finals will once again be played at a neutral site, Stringham Park in LaGrange, on the weekend of June 5 and 6.
“The LaGrange Soccer Club is excited to be hosting the State Cup finals in 2021. We've had the privilege of hosting the finals before and consider it an honor that Eastern New York has chosen Stringham Park as the location for their event,” said LaGrange Soccer Club President Kara Gadonniex. “Our fields are centrally located within the state association and allows it to host the entire event in one location in the beautiful Hudson Valley. We are looking forward to a great weekend of competitive soccer.”
