What is the MSYSA State Cup?
The MSYSA State Cup is the first level of competition for two (2) US Youth Soccer competitions.
The top division of State Cup, the Elite Division, is intended for teams that participate in any multi-state regional or national league (Elite-64, NLC, and others) and some MSPSP Premier I teams. Other teams may be considered to fill open spots in brackets. U13 – U19 teams in the Elite division will be competing to earn spots at the US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional Championships and potentially National Championships.
The second division of State Cup, the Premier Division, is intended for teams that participate in leagues primarily contained to Michigan such as the Michigan State Premier Soccer Program (which will include some MSPSP Premier I teams) and local select leagues. Other teams may be considered in order to fill open spots in brackets. U13 – U18 teams in the Premier Division will be competing to earn spots at the US Youth Soccer Midwest President’s Cup and potentially National President’s Cup.
Ultimately, division placement is at the discretion of the MSYSA State Cup Committee. However, regardless of division placement, each team will play 3 or 4 self-scheduled preliminary games and teams who do well will advance to the Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and then eventually the Finals. This is sure to be a great experience for your team!
U13 – U19 Boys teams participate in the Spring State Cup.
NEW for 2022-2023: Teams (and their accompanying spectators) will now sit on opposite sides of the field. Also, there is a new structure of referee fees.
