2019 US Youth Soccer Massachusetts State Cup
The Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association is proud to host the 2019 Massachusetts State Cup. This tournament is the first phase of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series.
The tournament is open to all 13U-19U teams who meet the 2019 Massachusetts State Cup Eligibility Requirements. Please review the requirement link below, prior to submitting your 2019 Massachusetts State Cup Entry Form and fee.
The 2018 Massachusetts State Cup Champions will be awarded the #1 seed and the Finalists will be awarded the #2 seed (providing these teams have maintained 51% roster continuity between their 2018 and 2019 State Cup Rosters). The remainder of the teams will be placed using a Live Blind Draw.
Official League Team Roster and State Cup maximum size is 22 players and Game Day Roster maximum size is 18 players.
Teams must maintain continuity of 9 common players between their Official League Roster and State Cup Roster.
All age groups will play 11v11 and will play a single game elimination format, varying based on the number of teams entered per age/gender group.
Play-in games will be played, if required, to reduce each age/gender group to 16 teams. These games will be self-scheduled by the teams and must be played by April 28th.
The State Cup tournament fees have been broken down into two categories; Entry Fee and Per Game Fee. The Entry Fee includes team registration, Mass Youth Soccer/USYS affiliation fees and tournament expenses not included in the Per Game Fee. The Per Game Fee includes the on-site game day costs, field fees and referee fees.
|Round of 16 Game Fee||$150.00|
|Quarter-finals Game Fee||$150.00|
|Semifinals Game Fee||$175.00|
|Finals Game Fee||$175.00|
For those teams selected to play a “play-in” game prior to the round of 16, they will have 50% of their entry fee returned if they lose this game.
Teams will be invoiced, by Mass Youth Soccer, for their Game Fee(s) after they have played their last State Cup game.
