Via the USYS website – US Youth Soccer is cancelling the 2020 Presidents Cup, our 2020 National Championships and all of the regional competitions leading up to those two events.
For more details, visit US Youth Soccer.
For now Missouri Youth Soccer still hopes to play the 2020 State Cup although in a modified format. However President’s Cup has been canceled and refunds are being processed.
From a MYSA email on the topic
At this time we will continue with the Missouri State Cup, although the format may differ from the traditional model. An email shall go out by this Friday to coaches allowing all teams to withdraw for a full refund should they choose, or they can choose to participate in a single weekend event over June 5-7th to name a State Cup Champion. This, of course, is contingent on being able to resume play.
* State Cup – to be determined
* President’s Cup – canceled (State & National)
* National League – canceled
* Midwest Regionals – canceled
* Youth Nationals – canceled
* Midwest Conference (formerly MRL) – to be determined
The same email noted that Midwest Conference play could restart but it is also contingent on group activities being allowed again.
I suspect that High School and Club activities for this season are in fact over. I say that even as Matt Troha from IHSA notes in an email yesterday
we are still optimistic that we will be able to conduct spring sport state tournaments.
Heck, I think Fall seasons are still in doubt, including the possibility of Colleges postponing campus activities.
The reason for my lack of optimism? Until there is a vaccine and until testing ramps up, there may be some loosening in the stay-at-home orders, but outbreaks will continue leading to continuing closures.
In the meantime, save your money, no unnecessary spending now …
In a rare peek at official thinking, @stlouisfed president James Bullard told @business last week that the jobless rate could climb to 30% next quarter and that the economy could contract by 50%. https://t.co/56VBXqeyoM
