About Us

The Media Center for Amateur Soccer & the US Amateur Cup

US Amateur Cup Media exists to independently promote the organized, competitive, amateur soccer offered by the National State Associations.

This media center is not affiliated with US Soccer, or US Adult Soccer, but seeks to increase the visibility and the prestige of its regions, state associations, leagues, clubs, players and therefore their high level amateur competitions.

Here we focus coverage on the US Amateur Cup, its Fritz Marth Trophy, as well as the regional Werner Fricker Open Cup and the Gerhard Mengel Over-30 Cup.

In 2018 we added coverage of the US National Donauschwaben Soccer Tournament, the National Competition for clubs of the Danube Swabian Association USA.

Michael Fricker grew up in amateur soccer at the German Hungarians. Within the club he is a member of the Board of Governors, the Publicity & Editorial Chairman and is part of the Major Division team staff. He manages social media for the United Soccer League of Pennsylvania. He is also the Press Chief for the Landesverband der Donauschwaben USA.


In 2018 USASA Region I awarded Fricker the Rocco Amoroso award for Fair Play.

Fricker is a writer and this site is evidence to his commitment of the amateur game and his love of the US Amateur Cup. Check out his family website or you can tweet him directly @Michael_Fricker
