MSSA Goes Forward with 2021 Cup Season
Hope for the new year. (21 November) Registration is now open for the 2021 MSSA Cup seaason. We go into the new year with some uncertainty but will plan to conduct our competitions as we have always, ready to make adjustments as necessary. We will start in January, as soon as authorities allow us to use their fields and look to conclude by March.
MSSA teams may register for any of our cups, including the two long standing competitions, the Rowland and Stewart Cups. The winners advance to USASA Region I qualifiers. The Morton Cup is a state only contest and is only for teams not competing in either the Rowland or Stewart Cups. Teams not affiliated with any of our MSSA member leagues are eligible to enter the Morton Cup as long as they register their players. We also have championships for O-30 & O-40, the winners advancing to Region I action.
The format for the various competitions are not set. Much is dependent upon not only the number of entries but also when we will be able to play on the fields. At this time, we have permits for field usage but as we have seen, things may change. Some competitions will be group play, others as knockouts, all dependent upon the factors given.
We will conduct draws for each cup competition. Matches will be played primarily on Sundays. Teams must enter online through the links below. The deadline to enter the cups is 14 December. The entry fee is $105 per cup (convenience fee included) and must be paid online. Referee fees for the cups are $200.00 ($100.00 per team) and paid at the field by each team.
