Target United Cup

September 29–30, 2018

Location: National Sports Center (Blaine, Minn.)

Minnesota Youth Soccer is excited to announce the re-branding of the Summer and Fall Jamboree. Target is joining the world of soccer, taking part in the sport’s inclusivity and family-friendliness via engagement in local youth and national professional play. Minnesota has been selected to host the Target United Cup this Fall. Teams will participate in a 3-games-in-a-day experience and will be bracketed according to their play level (maroon/gold), like the MYSA Jamborees. There are opportunities for all MYSA 9U/10U Maroon and Gold teams and all MYSA 7U–10U Recreation and Recreation Plus teams. No scores will be kept and there will be no playoffs.

Team Registration: Due by September 16, 2018

Rosters and Guest Players

All players must be age eligible for the team as calculated using 1/1/2018 as the age calculation date. Each team must meet the minimum and not exceed the maximum roster allotments to register.

**A guest player is a player not on the team’s league roster, but is age eligible and registered with the same club as the team.


  • Every effort will be made to provide Maroon, Gold, Recreation  and Recreation Plus brackets; however, the Target United Cup reserves the right to combine age groups and/or play levels dependent on the total number of registered teams in an age group or play level. Parity of competition will be a priority when scheduling.
  • Each team will be placed in a group for round-robin play and be scheduled for a minimum of three games. Each team will play games against other teams within its group.
  • There will be no playoffs.
