For this event – clubs should bring teams. Five teams applied means you are 100% accepted!
We hope that we will be able to accommodate all who apply. If we need to trim teams, we use a number of resources for determining who makes it into each year’s event. We start with looking at where teams want to be placed. This does not make a huge impact on placement, but we can at least have a starting point. We use all of the data on your application and the NOTES section is huge for helping us know more about your team. NPL and Midwest Regional League teams are certain to get in each year. We use results in these leagues, plus your local league, State Cup Results, Tournament Results, National Soccer Ranking, GOTSOCCER scores, past Fall Classic results, Regional Experts from other clubs…You name it we use it.
Make sure you fill out your application and notes as complete as possible.

How do you bracket Teams?
We use a number of resources for team placement in each bracket or division. We hope to have Premier and Gold in every age for 8v8 and 11v11. Diversity and competition are #1 priority’s, so we will try not to have teams from the same leagues play each other. All of the criteria listed under the first question are also used to help determine brackets. Recent league play, strength of league, Midwest Regional League Standings and results, performance in State Cup, other top-level tournaments, National ranking services, diversity with geography, and other criteria go in to our bracketing decisions.
No, all teams must preregister online before the event. Click the REGISTRATION button for details.
For the Gallagher Friendlies we offer club discounts starting at 10 teams. Email Mitch B for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will do our best to help with these coaches conflicts. Two teams are usually taken care of, but remember there is drive time between the sites that may or may not be able to be taken into account. Three teams are difficult, but we will take care of you. Four or more - email Mitch.
