For the Good of the Game

As a consequence of deliberate coaching decisions at the Fall 2013 State Cup competition, the Iowa State Cup Rules now specifically address match-fixing, collusion and coaching decisions as they relate specifically to this important youth soccer event.  The issue is addressed on page 20 of the Iowa State Cup Rules and it is required reading for all club leaders and their State Cup coaches.
