Minnesota Futures League


Our Minnesota Futures League is powered by Mayo Clinic and is specifically designed for 11U-12U players transitioning from 9v9 to 11v11. Rosters are fluid and can change the day of competition (if players meet the age requirement), which provides club flexibility in how they challenge and develop their players.


Typically, clubs in Futures will have a pool of players then create game day teams from that pool. Rosters can change for every game thereby giving clubs more autonomy and control over their Zone I players’ development.

Accepted Teams

Clubs must demonstrate that they have a curriculum, facilities, and appropriate staff in order to be accepted into the Futures League. To participate each team is required to pay $350/season. 


Four games will be played during September-October, one optional winter event, and six games will be played during spring/early summer. The year will culminate with all teams competing in the Junior State Cup.
