FULLERTON, Calif. (Tuesday, April 5, 2016) – Cal South and the California Regional League announced today the dates for an open play-in tournament for premier and elite teams looking to participate in the 2016-17 CRL Premier League. The play-in tournament will be held on May 7-8 for the 2003, 2004, and 2005 Divisions; the 1998/97, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 Divisions will play on July 9-10. Locations and bracketing will be announced prior to the start of the tournament.

The deadline for the application process is April 18, 2016 for the 2003-2005 Divisions, and June 11, 2016 for the 1998/97-2002 Divisions. The cost to enter the play-in tournament is $595 (Referees fees are separate).  All teams will play a maximum of three games. Maximum of 32 teams per gender/per age accepted into the play in tournament based on supplemental application criteria.  Any team that does not fill out applicable application information will not be considered for tournament.  Any team that is not selected to participate will have money refunded. 

To register please login to your Member Account and look for the “2016 CRL Premier Youngers Play In Tournament” or “2016 CRL Premier Olders Play In Tournament” under your team to apply for the tournament.

The change in the CRL qualification process has been reconstructed for the upcoming season due to the changes in US Soccer’s calendar year age; all interested Cal South teams will have the opportunity to apply to participate in the play-in tournament.

The CRL was created to showcase Cal South’s top teams as they compete for the state championship, as well as a spot at the annual US Youth Soccer’s Far West Regional Championships.
