Draw for the Region I National Cups

 

 

VERY IMPORTANTE BELOW:

 

You will notice that we have been lucky, in that ALL 3 NJ TEAMS will play their First round of Regional Competitions, at HOME.

 

That being said, we need to make a change to the Finals of the NJ finals

 

Since the Amateur Cup first game in Region 1 will be played on APRIL 9,   

WE WILL PLAY THE AMATEUR CUP FINAL FOR NJ, ON  MARCH 26 ( this will give the winning team to finalize their cup roster and send it to the Regional Commissioner at least 7 days prior to the game)

 

AND

 

WE WILL PLAY THE   OPEN CUP (WERNER FRICKER CUP) FINAL  FOR NJ, ON APRIL 2

 

 

Remember:

these is no deviation from the schedule that I sent out to play the NJ rounds.

You MUST play on those specific dates.

In case of inclement weather, the game must be made up during the week, so that there is no interruption in the NJ schedule

 

Also, ALL National Cups games are supposed to played on SUNDAYS at 2:00 PM (+ or -  one hour) UNLESS AGREED BY BOTH TEAMS .

This is also true when you go play in the Regional tournament.

 

Please look at and familiarize yourself with ALL the Cup rules that are posted on the Region 1 website, at the link below:

Pay particular, attention to the requirements for Players International Clearances.

Although we do not enforce clearances when playing WITHIN NJ rounds, they are enforced during the Regional and National rounds.

SO make sure that ALL PLAYERS that were NOT born in the USA, receive a clearance AT LEAST 30 DAYS BEFORE the first Regional game.
