2024 USASA Regional Rounds

Due to the 100th Anniversary of the USASA National Amateur Cup, Mass Soccer was able to secure two bids into the regional rounds of the Cup. We are proud to have Providence City and Sete de Setembro USA represent us.

Opening Round USASA Region I Results:

  • Sete traveled to Newtown with a short bench and put up a good fight.  They lost 2-0 to the Pride who were the 2019 National Champs.
  • PCFC hosted NY Greek Americans in a "Match that Didn't Happen". (Click link to see PCFC's account of the match.) NYGA filed a protest asking for a forfeit.  The Protest was denied. Providence City advances to the regional quarterfinals and will face NPSL NY Shockers on April 27th at the Shocker's Stadium in Colonie, NY.

2023-2024 State Amateur Cup Champions: PCFC

It was a long journey to the 2023 State Amateur Cup Final for the Providence City Rogues. This quest first began when the Rouges won the 2022 Ocean Soccer State League Cup thus earning them a bid into the 2023 Mass Soccer Champions Cup Tournament.

In this summer's Champions Cup Tournament, the Rogues battled their way through tough competition as they faced off and defeated the other 2022-2023 League and Cup Champions in the state, defeating Boa Vista (Torres FC) in the final match by a score of 4-2.

This title earned them passage and the #1 seed in the 2023 Mass Soccer Amateur Cup. In the quarterfinal round, they defeated Safira, then upset BSSL division 1 side, CD Faialense in the semifinals, and in the state final faced Sete de Setembro, a tough opponent from the Eastern Premier Soccer League (regional league). The Rogues prevailed in this match by a score of 2-1 earning them their second state title of the year.

Providence City becomes only the second team to capture both the Champions Cup and Amateur Cup titles in the same year.  This was first accomplished by FC Omens last year.

Providence City will advance to USASA Amateur Cup Region I competition in April. 2024 marks the historic 100th anniversary of this prestigious National Cup.  Due to the participation levels and high quality of teams in Massachusetts, we were given a second entry into Amateur Cup regionals.  Our state runner-up, Sete de Setembro, will also be joining Providence City in the next round of this tournament.

The winner of Region I will advance to play the champions of the other four regions on July 25-28th in DeKalb, Illinois. Click here for more information on the 2024 USASA National Amateur Cup

The Mass Soccer State Cup is open to Amateur Players only.  If you have any questions on a player's status please email our state registrar at Registrar@Mass-Soccer.org.
