Fallston Soccer continues to monitor all current rec council, county, state, and national guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are committed to public health and safety.


Notes about the bracketing process:


The Fallston Cup Committee does not use GotSoccer points as our primary placement analytic.

GotSoccer points begin at U11.  Because many of our teams play in the CMSA league, which doesn't participate in GotSoccer, some teams may have only a few GotSoccer games listed in their account.  For example, if a U11 team went 3-1 in a single tournament this season, this gives them a 75% win percentage and an outstanding GotSoccer ranking. This ranking may be misleading in terms of the strength of competition they faced and the level of team they may be.
 Due to these factors, The Fallston Cup Committee uses current league, level of play within that league, goals for and against, and this season's tournament data that we can find. GotSoccer data is not ignored, rather it is used to round out the bigger picture of a team. We spend many hours researching, debating, and ranking teams.  
 Don't be hesitant to register early to avoid being wait-listed.  If your season doesn't go the way you planned, we use the data as our primary placement, not the level you originally selected.  We pride ourselves on customer service, so reach out after registering if you have concerns going into our bracketing process which begins immedietly after registration closes.
 The Fallston Cup Committee's end goal is to group the teams that have registered for our tournament into the best groups of competition that we can make.  It is not an exact science and we work very hard to make your experience here challenging and fun.  The Fallston Cup has existed for over 25 years because of the many volunteers working tirelessly behind the scenes.  Thank you for choosing the Fallston Cup and we can't wait to see you on the fields! 

About the Fallston Cup:

The Fallston Cup is the premier end of season tournament played in November, at the Fallston Recreation fields in Fallston, Maryland.  The Boys Fallston Cup tournament was founded in the fall of 1994, with the Girls Fallston Cup added the following year, in 1995.  The tournament allows teams to cap their seasons with a tournament providing great competition and one last soccer adventure before the holidays.  The tournament is well organized and always manned with many friendly and helpful volunteers.  Fallston Cup attracts over 400 teams for the two weekends of the girls and boys tournaments and is one of the few tournaments with brackets available for recreational teams.  Teams come from all over Maryland as well as Delaware, Pennsylvania and Virginia to join in the competition and fun. 

The Fallston Cup annually sees over 400 teams competing in the Cup.  The Cup typically has 10 venues with 36 fields used for play. We are 100% volunteer run.  Thanks to all the volunteers who work many days and nights leading up to this event as well as on the days of the event - it is always a success due to your efforts!

The tournament is open to all US Soccer Federation (USSF) affiliates.  In addition to those teams, we also host brackets for local rec all-star teams as a great way to cap their season.

First and second place teams will receive individual player trophies, AND those teams will be invited to Fallston Cup Night at a Baltimore Blast game.

Trainers from Upper Chesapeake Medical System will be on hand at our two largest sites to assist with any injuries or medical concerns.
