Indiana State Cup

About Indiana State Cup

The Indiana State Cup is part of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series. The top ranked teams for age groups 13U-19U will be selected to participate in the Indiana State Cup.  The Indiana State Cup Champions will advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series Midwest Regionals. Champions from the Midwest Regional event will advance to the National Finals.

Beginning in 2018, Indiana State Cup moved to a maximum of eight (8) teams for the 16U, 17U, 18U and 19U divisions. All Midwest Conference, Great Lakes Conference, and ISL Premier teams are required to apply to State Cup and accept their placement into State or Presidents Cup based on the selection criteria, recommendation of the selection committee and approval of the Cup Committee. 

The top eight (8) teams competing in State Cup in the 16U and older divisions will be placed in two groups of four (4) per seeding (1, 4, 5, 8 & 2, 3, 6, 7). One game is to be played prior to Preliminary Weekend which could be played at the Midwest Conference, Great Lakes Conference, and ISL Premier College Showcase weekend. The other two games will be played on Preliminary Weekend. The top two teams from each group advance to the semi-final and final weekend.
