What is the Michigan Futsal State Cup?
The Michigan Futsal State Cup is designed to provide the highest quality of futsal competition across the entire state of Michigan. Many of the participating clubs or academies are training in futsal and looking for high-level competition via league or tournament play. Teams who win the Michigan Futsal State Cup will be invited to represent Michigan at the Great Lakes Regional Championships (January 17-20 in Akron, OH) and, if they advance, the USYF National Championships (February 14-17 in Kansas City). In the Futsal State Cup, each team plays three self-scheduled games. Teams who do well in the will advance to the Playoffs.
Why the Michigan Futsal State Cup?
Futsal has always been considered an incredible training tool for soccer development, but over the past decade it has begun to stand alone as a sport of its own in America. Futsal is now the fastest growing sport in the country with academies popping up all over the map. With the introduction of U.S. Youth Futsal’s Academy program, the USYF Player Identification program, and the upcoming Professional Futsal League, the player development pathway has been set for youth players to continue playing futsal at the highest level.
How does the Michigan Futsal State Cup work?
The Michigan Futsal State Cup works very similar to the Michigan State Cup and Junior State Cup. Teams are placed in groups and each team will play three self-scheduled games. Teams who do well in the group stage will advance to the Playoffs weekend in Grand Rapids, MI.
Teams who win the Michigan Futsal State Cup will be invited to represent Michigan at the Great Lakes Regional Championships (January 17-20 in Akron, OH) and, if they advance, the USYF National Championships (February 14-17 in Kansas City).
