Important Presidents Cup Rule Change
Presidents Cup Qualifying Leagues
 

At the October 2014 MSYSA Executive Board meeting, a motion was made by the MSYSA Presidents Cup Committee that the 2015 MSYSA Presidents Cup rules be adopted.  As such, Rule 2.1.3., as listed in the 2014 Presidents Cup rules, would be eliminated.  This rule stated that “MSYSA will accept teams that play in a mixed US Youth Soccer and other US Soccer Federation member league as long as the team plays in a US Youth Soccer only division.”

The MSYSA maintains a strong sense of fairness and equity, and as such, considered the ramifications of limiting Presidents cup qualifying leagues.  It was agreed that since the opportunity to play in a winter and spring league was a viable option and that maintaining the integrity of the MSYSA Presidents Cup and the Presidents Cup Series was of extreme importance, that MSYSA would only consider leagues that consisted of USYSA-only teams as an MSYSA Presidents Cup qualifying league.  This motion was voted upon and passed by the MSYSA Executive Board.

 

Presidents Cup Qualifying Leagues

Presidents Cup Rule 2.1.3. reads "During the current seasonal year, all teams must play in a fall, winter, or spring affiliated MSYSA member sanctioned US Youth Soccer league.  The team must compete in at least a 4-team approved league during the current seasonal year in its State Association or with its State Association's permission in another State Association.  The leauge competition must consist of a minimum of one game against each of 3 different teams participating in the league."

It is important to note that only USYS/MSYSA cards and rosters are to be used for all teams seeking qualification into the Maryland Presidents Cup.
