Iowa Presidents Cup

USYS_PCUP_IOWA_Horiz_TM_NoDate_RGB_WBGPart of the Iowa Soccer Championship Series (ISCS), the Iowa Presidents Cup is the second-highest level youth championship in the state and extends the competitive pathway for Iowa teams to compete regionally and nationally against some of the best in the country.  The purpose of the competition is to identify the teams that will advance to the Midwest Presidents Cup Championships as representatives of #TeamIowa.
 
Managing the event during Covid-19
Balancing the safety of participants (players, coaches, referees, spectators) while still offering our annual championship events is what is driving our decision-making for our fall championships: the Iowa State Cup. We are doing everything we can to ensure Covid-19 does not derail this once in a lifetime opportunity to win a state title and go on to represent Iowa next summer at US Youth Soccer’s regional and/or national championships. By being proactive, creative and flexible, we are hopeful the result is no team will be forced to forfeit a match, and/or have to withdraw from the competition due to a positive Covid-19 test.

FALL 2020 COMPETITION FORMAT  |  Single Elimination, Flexible Scheduling
 
In keeping with our guiding principles (above) for reducing risk, expense and time commitment during the pandemic, the flexible format for Fall 2020 Competition in Presidents Cup is single elimination, with the option to localize matches.  (This decision is for this fall, please do not assume or misinterpret that it is the format for future years).
 
Included in this format, once the official schedules are released by Iowa Soccer, is the flexibility for teams to:
  • Stay on the play date, but move the match to a more local or neutral location
  • If beneficial for both teams, move the play date and the location of the match within a designated window
  • Details on “how to” and the window in which matches may be rescheduled by teams involved will be released when the schedules are released
