The next two games in the round robin format will be played at the Virginia Soccer Training Center (VSTC) on Saturday, April 30th and Sunday, May 1st. Each team will play one game each day. We will do our best to give equal rest time to the teams in each age group.
There will be seveal conflicts with teams who have the same coach and we have worked those into the schedule. It will be very hard to accommodate game time requests and keep the rest times as equal as possible and accommodate coaching conflicts.
The point system for the tournament round is as follows:
Standings for the Champions League tournament round will be decided according to the following rules –
Points Awarded Per Game
a. 3 Points for a Win
b. 1 Point for a Tie
c. 0 Points for a Loss
It is possible to have a tie for the 1st and/or 2nd place teams that move forward to the semifinals. On Sunday May 1 we will be able to calculate this and play the tie breakers at VSTC if any are needed. This would mean that teams may need to wait until a later game is finished in order to proceed to the tie breaking round. Be sure to check with the State Cup Commitee on Sunday prior to leaving the field if you think your team may be involved in a tie with another team in your bracket. All of the tie breaking procedures are explained in the State Cup Rules. Please take time to read through these rules.
The first and second place teams in each bracket will advance to the semifinals. This will be the first and second place teams in the top bracket and the first and second place teams in the bottom bracket. Semifinals are on May 21 and Finals are on May 22. at the Virginia Soccer Training Center.
