Fees & Dates: Iowa Soccer USYS United Cup

Iowa soccer USYS United cup


The Iowa Soccer USYS United Cup offers recreational soccer players an opportunity to play in a high-quality tournament in a fun atmosphere, where the emphasis is placed on participation, fun and competition.

The tournament is for Iowa Soccer member teams and players classified as "recreational".   It is designed for regular-season teams, not tournament team rosters, so eligibility includes the team has to be registered with Iowa Soccer during the season the tournament is being played (fall or spring) and must play in a league that has a minimum of four teams.  Player eligibility requires that each participant have a current seasonal-year Iowa Soccer-issued player pass.

This annual event is the largest recreational youth soccer event in Iowa. Iowa Soccer has run a tournament for rec soccer players/teams every year since 1992.
