Fall Target United Cup




The US Youth Soccer Target United Cup offers recreational soccer players a high-quality tournament opportunity in a fun atmosphere, where the emphasis is placed on participation rather than competition.  This traditional team event is open to any Iowa Soccer Level 3 member team in the 7U - 19U age groups.  

Teams will play a round-robin format, with a minimum of three games guaranteed.  Scores and standings are not kept in the 10U & below age groups, with participants receiving a participation award.  In the 11U & above age groups, semifinal and final matches are held, with members of the first and second-place teams each receiving awards.

This US Youth Soccer event is the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, boasting more than 65,000 participants. The Iowa Soccer Association has run a US Youth Soccer Sponsored Recreational event every year since 1992.
