MARYLAND, The Maryland State Soccer Association has opened registration for their state cup competitions. Maryland has been the most fervent and outspoken state when it comes to the national cup competitions. Its no surprise then that the state is holding the US Amateur, the Werner Fricker Open, and the Gerhard Mengel Over 30. By the way, the state uses these names explicitly regardless of whether or not USASA has discontinued the competitions with namesakes of Mengel and Fricker.
Maryland will hold the following cups beginning on January 10, 2016:
- Stewart Cup (US Amateur Cup)
- Rowland Cup (Werner Fricker Open Cup)
- Maryland Over-30 (Gerhard Mengel O-30 Cup)
- Morton Cup (Maryland’s State Specific Title)
