Finals: November 21st 1pm Kickoff - Back Bay Fens
This year, if the teams in our our State Cup semifinals or finals are also scheduled to play in the OTHSL semis/finals, we will postpone our semis and finals until after the conclusion of the OTHSL playoffs.
Format: 11v11 Single Elimination Competition
Each round will take place over the course of a week/weekend.
Teams will be placed in a bracket according to a blind draw conducted by our state registrar.
In the opening rounds (play in rounds, quarterfinals, semifinals) of the competition, the home team (according to the draw) is responsible for securing the fixture and communicate this information to our Cup Commissioner. The home team may defer home field to the visiting team, if they so chose. Here are the rules for scheduling opening round games:
Q: Are Mass Soccer Rosters Required for the Cup?
A: Yes. Team managers will have a roster in the Mass Soccer account that they will need to build before the Cup freeze date. They can import a copy of their roster from another team or competition or build their roster from scratch. For help with your roster, please contact our registrar at Registrar@Mass-Soccer.org.
Teams must print and bring 2 copies of their Cup Roster for each game they play. These rosters must be given to the referee before the game.
Q: Do I need to have a plastic Mass Soccer Player Card to play?
A: No. The referee will check you in off the game roster. You may show your ID on your phone or you can print a temporary Mass Soccer ID off the website. A Mass Drivers License or any government issued photo ID may also be used to verify your identity.
Q: Who will be our referee/s?
A: Mass Soccer uses our state assigner to select top referees for every Cup game. Opening rounds will be assigned 3 referees. Our finals will have a 4th official. Referees are paid for and provided by Mass Soccer for the entirety of the Cup.
It is the responsibility of all competing team to please review:
