Presidents Cup

General Information

US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup gives Minnesota Youth Soccer teams in the U13–U18 age groups an alternative to the Minnesota State Cup and a chance to play against teams of similar abilities for the goal of State, Regional and National titles.  This event provides a progressive, competitive experience to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community from the state to regional to national levels of US Youth Soccer.

Tournament Fee: $650

Note: Teams have the option to enter either the Minnesota State Cup or Presidents Cup, but may NOT enter both. Teams that compete in the top division of the Midwest Regional league (MRL) or National League as well as teams that finished in the top four of the previous year’s State Cup are not eligible to compete in Presidents Cup.



Teams can apply for Presidents Cup through their Affinity access during the open registration period between January 5–February 9, 2018. Please contact your club registrar if you’re not set up in Affinity.
