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.
Iowa Soccer recreational tournament opportunities are targeted to and intended for regular-season rosters. We understand that not all players or parents can commit to a full weekend of soccer. And we also know that some regular-season rosters barely have enough players to field a team and needs subs in order to play in a tournament.
Every attempt must be made to find guest players who are of like skill -- don't seek out 'ringers' who make your team stronger -- that is not in the spirit of the Allowance. Maximum number of guest players is three.
Iowa Soccer officials will make the final determination of compliance and eligibility. Your submission is a request, not a guarantee. Once submitted, requests are vetted.
