TEAM CHECK IN & EVENT REQUIREMENTS

As a reminder, even though event registration took place in GotSport, you will still need to manage your roster and player/staff cards on Sports Engine (or TGS for ECNL teams) since that is where player registration took place for the 20/21 season.

We have made changes to how we do team check in and what is required.  Outlined below is a list of what you will need. These changes will make the check in process much quicker.

  • Please bring 5-6 copies of your official US Club Soccer roster to team check in
    • Players must have Jersey numbers listed on the roster
    • Roster must include coaching staff
    • Roster must show all players as carded
    • Roster cannot have any write ins
    • No guest players are allowed
    • Reminder, rosters can have up to 26 players, but game day roster is limited to 18 players
  • US Club Soccer officials will review your roster and keep a copy as the official event roster.  At this time, the roster is frozen for the event.
  • We will stamp the other copies of your roster as official event rosters and give those back to you to use at games.  We WILL NOT need player/staff cards at team check in.
  • Prior to each game, you will provide an official stamped roster to the referee along with the player & staff cards.  Referees will check the rosters to the cards (if a player is on the roster but does not have a card or a player has a card but is not on the roster, they are not eligible to play).
  • Please also make sure to have player medical forms available on-site (we will not check them, but in case of emergency you will need to produce those either in hard copy or digitally).

EVENT FORMAT

  • Teams will play 1 game per day.  Teams are guaranteed 3 group play games.  Group play will take place on July 16th, 17th & 18th.  
  • Semi-Finals will take place on the 19th (if a semi-final round is not required for a division, it will be a day off).
  • Finals will take place in the morning on July 20th.  Final games and awards will be completed by 2pm at the latest.

LOOK BACK AT NATIONAL CUP XVIII

Results | Photos | Champions | Videos

Twenty-two champions were awarded National Cup XVIII Finals championships following the title matches of the National Cup XVIII Finals, the culminating event of US Club Soccer’s cup-based national competition.

A total of 216 teams from 124 clubs were represented across 32 states, stretching from Hawaii to Rhode Island. They competed at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park, July 19-23, all striving to end their 2018-19 seasons on the champions stage alongside the Doug Hamilton Memorial Trophy. 

The 18th annual National Cup Finals featured the largest tournament field in the event’s illustrious history, besting last year’s mark of 206 total teams – a testament to the growth of the qualifying competitions and host organizations, as well as of the popularity of the exciting National Cup format.
