State Cup Qualifying Matches | Process

All games highlighted in blue on the schedule are considered State Cup qualifying matches.   Teams who are using this league to be considered State Cup eligible must play a minimum of 3 state cup qualifying games.  For these games, each manager and referee prior to kickoff must check the opposing teams roster and player cards. The roster must be an official stamped USYSA/MSYSA roster and each player must have a USYSA/MSYSA player card to be eligible to play.  The club pass rule can be applied for guest players only but only players within the club with an official USYSA/MSYSA player card are permitted to play.

Absolutely no US Club Soccer rosters, non-rostered players, guest players from outside clubs, or players without USYSA/MSYSA cards will be permitted to play. Once both managers and referees have checked the orster and cards, the opposing manager and referee must sign their name on each roster.

Even if you are a team highlighted in blue but are not using the league for State Cup qualification you must abide by the USYSA/MSYSA rules as the other team is using the league for State Cup qualification.  Please make sure you bring your USYSA/MSYSA roster and player cards.
