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.
This tournament is open to all U13–U19 competitive teams. The US Youth Soccer Minnesota State Cup is a tournament designed to select the Minnesota league team or Midwest Regional team at each age level and gender to represent Minnesota at the US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional Championships. Regional winners will go on to compete in the US Youth Soccer National Championships.
Each year a State Cup Committee is formed and reviews the US Youth Soccer National Championship Policies and Minnesota State Cup Rules.
2017 State Cup Rule Update
The Minnesota State Cup U19 division will include U20 for one year due to the change in birth year registration implementation. The U19/20 will be a single division with combined players and/or teams.
