MSSA Cups




2023 Cup Registration Now Open
Deadline: 12 December

Over-50 competition added to cup slate. (11 November) Registration for the 2023 cup season is now open for the Rowland, Stewart, Morton Cups along with the Maryland Over-30, Over-40 & Over-50 Cups. Registration will be open until 12 December.

Play will start in January and we look to complete by March. Several of our winners will advance to the qualifiers for USASA Region I. The Stewart Cup champion advances to US Amateur Cup. NPSL affiliated Maryland teams are eligible to enter the Stewart Cup but must register all of their players with MSSA prior to taking part in the competition. Our Rowland Cup, Maryland's oldest competition in the Open category, will see the winner compete for the Region I Werner Fricker Cup. The Maryland O-30 & O-40 champions advance to the Region event. We have a new competition, the Maryland Over-50 Cup, which may also become a Region I contest if other state associations enter teams.

The Morton Cup is a state only competition. Teams and players taking part in the Rowland and Stewart Cups are not eligible for this championship. Teams playing in non-affiliated leagues are eligible for the Morton, Over-30, Over-40 & Over-50 Cups but must register all of their players prior to taking part in the competition.

A draw will be held for all of our cups. Teams must enter online through the links below. The deadline to enter the cups is 12 December 2022. The entry fee is $105 per cup (convenience fee included) and must be paid online. Referee fees for the cups are $220 ($110 per team) and paid at the field by each team. Matches will be played primarily on Sundays.
