Teams applying for the cup competition must compete in the WV State League or an approved league. The league competition must consist of a minimum of one (1) game against each of three different teams in the league. Select teams are not eligible for any cup competition.
U12 must play in the WV State League to qualify and be seeded for State Cup.
U13 and up can qualify by playing in WV State League, Ohio Buckeye League, Great Lakes Conference, South Atlantic Conference, National League, National Capital Soccer League, Club Champions League Mid-Atlantic, Shawnee Soccer League (Teams using the Shawnee League will have a frozen roster for their cup team) and PA West League. Teams playing in these leagues will need to submit to the Director of Competitions your team name, the league playing in, age group and division so it can be verified. You will also need to submit your roster.
Other leagues will be considered but Director of Competitions will need to receive an email with the name of your team, age division and the league you wish to have considered as a qualifier before you commit otherwise you might have to play state league as well. However clubs will be required to provide teams for our state league so those that cannot use another league can qualify (as needed). It does not have to be the same team that is in State Cup for example WVFC 03 Black is in State Cup ...WVFC 03 Red can be the team provided for State League if a team is needed.
