2022 Complete Rules Document, (Updated for 2022)
NOTE: There have been no changes (except the title of the document) since Sept. 2020.
The most important changes in Sept. 2020 to the Indiana Soccer STATE Cup Rules were as follows:
Beginning for the 2020-2021 playing year (2021 cup games), the STATE cup will now host up to 12 teams per age/gender division. The 12 teams will be divided into 4 brackets of 3 teams each. The preliminary round games will now consist of just 2 games per team. Winner by points will advance to the semi finals.
Additionally, beginning in 2021 for STATE and PRESIDENTS cups, once teams are ranked they will be seeded into brackets. If two or more teams from the same club are seeded into the same bracket, the seeding order will not be changed to separate these teams. They will remain in the same bracket. When the schedule is written, teams from the same club in the same bracket will play that game first in group play then the regular order of game play will resume.
