The stage is now set for the opening rounds of the Tennessee State Soccer Association (TSSA) Spring State Cup this weekend at the Richard Siegel Soccer Complex in Murfreesboro. Division 1 and Division 2 girls teams in the 13U-19U age groups, along with Division 1 and Division 2 boys teams in the 13U-14U bracket, will compete in quarterfinal play on Saturday to earn their spot in the semifinals on Sunday.

“With five TN teams already earning a spot into Nationals through NL PRO and six TN teams securing their spot in Southern Regionals though NL Conference play, we are excited to see which teams will join them!” said Jeannie Louk, Director of Leagues and Programs at the Tennessee State Soccer Association. “We have 205 teams from 48 different clubs across the state that have earned their spot into the State Cup, and we are excited to see how it all plays out on the pitch.”

TSSA State Cup commences following the spring season of Tennessee State League, where a record 375 teams from 54 different clubs participated in the statewide competition. After this run of matches in the state quarterfinals and semifinals, next weekend will showcase the finals in the Division 1 and Division 2 Tournaments, along with the semifinals and finals of the Division 3 Tournaments. Additionally, the semifinal and final rounds for all 12U boys and girls tournaments will take place.

Tennessee State Cup Champions at the Division 1 level (13U and older) will advance to the US Youth Soccer (USYS) Regional Tournament this June in Tampa and Auburndale, Florida. The competition is part of the USYS National Championships Presented by New York Life, which is the country’s most prestigious national youth soccer tournament. Champions at the Division 2 level (13U and older) will continue onto regional play in the USYS Southern Presidents Cup next month in Plano, Texas. The USYS Presidents Cup provides a progressive and competitive environment to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community.

Open to all member clubs and their teams, TSSA has hosted the Tennessee State Cup since 1976. Games are played at competitive levels within three divisions (Division 1, Division 2 and Divisions 3).
