Registration is now open for the 2nd annual Central States Cup, US Club Soccer’s state championship event for Midwest-based 11-U through 19-U boys and girls member teams. The state cup is an open tournament recommended for elite teams from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and beyond.
The 2020 Central States Cup will feature two levels of competition, Super Group (most competitive) and Premier Group, and will be in Kansas City, held across two weekends of play. 11-U through 14-U boys teams and 11-U through 19-U girls teams will compete November 7-8 at Wyandotte Sporting Fields and Pinnacle National Development Center, while the 15-U through 19-U boys will play their matches November 21-22 at Swope Soccer Village.
The playing format is 9v9 for 11-U and 12-U age groups. The Champions of the 13-U and older age groups will vie for a spot in the National Cup XX Midwest Regional, with entry fees paid by the Central States Cup. At least three matches are guaranteed for all participating teams.
To be eligible to participate, teams must hold US Club Soccer passcards at the time of the event. Teams currently not carded with US Club Soccer may do so by contacting Membership Services Representative Todd Bailey at email@example.com or (630) 346-7707.
