If a game date or time is NOT listed here in GotSoccer it has not been sent to Illinois Youth Soccer and game officials have NOT been assigned.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE MY STATE CUP GAMES?
Teams matched up in a game must communicate and mutually agree on a date that is scheduled by the SCHEDULE BY DATE AND played NO LATER than the PLAY BY DATE . The team listed on the top of the bracket is the Home Team and the game should be played at their location (unless the Home Team fields are not available or a large distance of travel would be required for one or both teams. In that case, the game should be held at a neutral and equidistant location.) If team cannot mutually agree, the State Cup Director will make a final decision on where and when the match will be held.
All State Cup / Presidents Cup matches are required to be scheduled by the listed Schedule by date. Any game not scheduled by the Schedule by deadline will be FINED $50 PER TEAM PER DAY.
Teams contact (Click Here For Fall 2015 Contacts) each other and once an agreement is made about the match, they should email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Teams Playing
- Age Group
- Date Of Match
- Time Of Match
- Location Of Match
DO NOT EMAIL BACK & FORTHS BETWEEN COACHES TO IYSA. ONLY SEND EMAIL ONCE THE DATE IS FINALIZED.
TEAMS DO NOT ASSIGN REFEREES FOR HOME-TEAM-HOST GAMES. The State Cup Referee Assignor will assign the officiating crew upon receipt of the above listed information.
GAME CHANGE FEES
Once a date and time is emailed to email@example.com the date is finalized. If either team requests a game change they must:
- Pay a $50 game change fee (prior to the game change being approved)
- If game was to be played at their home field, their opponent now becomes the host location
- Any game change requests must be received NO LATER than 5 days prior to the scheduled match
