Minnesota Presidents Cup

OVERVIEW
US Youth Soccer Minnesota Presidents Cup presented by Mayo Clinic Orthopedics and Sports Medicine gives Minnesota Youth Soccer teams in the 13U–19U 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.

Note: We highly encourage Premier I teams to register for State Cup and Premier II & First Division teams to register for Presidents Cup. This general guideline is used throughout the nation to ensure the integrity and competitiveness of each event remains intact. 

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 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.
