BOULDER, Colo. – After two months of top-level club competition, Life and San Francisco Golden Gate will battle at Glendale’s Infinity Park for the inaugural Elite Cup championship this Saturday, May 25. The match will be broadcast by Glendale via glendalerugby.com/matchplayer beginning at 6:00 P.M. MT.
From the East, Life advanced to the Final by way of two wins in group play and a dominating performance against New York Athletic Club in the East Semifinal, a rematch of the only loss Life sustained in group play.
San Francisco Golden Gate enters the Elite Cup Final as the only undefeated club in the competition by defeating Seattle-Old Puget Sound Beach three times (once in group play, once in the West Semifinal and once in DI action) and pushing aside the challenges from Glendale Raptors and Denver Barbarians.
"They're well-organized," San Francisco Golden Gate Head Coach Grant Wells said of Life. "We know we're going to have to be on top of our game. We'll have to take full advantage of the opportunities they give us. Basically, we have to make sure we stick to our game plan and limit our turnovers and mistakes."
The Elite Cup Final will also be telecast on Fox Soccer Plus June 25 at 9:00 P.M. ET. For more information on how to watch the Elite Cup Final on Fox Soccer Plus, please visit Fox Soccer Plus’ website.
