US Youth Soccer Minnesota State Cup

Attention State Cup Team Managers and Coaches,

Due to multiple factors out of our control, all State Cup matches scheduled for today Saturday May 20, and Sunday May 21, 2017 at Caswell Park have been cancelled.

The Minnesota State Cup Committee considered moving today’s matches to Sunday May 21, 2017, however due to the field conditions as well as a potential shortfall of referees required for 24 matches, this was not a feasible alternative.

Given those factors, and as stated in the 2017 Minnesota State Cup Rules and the MYSA website, matches will be rescheduled for June 3–4, 2017. The Affinity schedule will be updated no later than Thursday, May 25 by end of day.

May 2 – June 4, 2017
