 SCSCL and Premier League Teams - Seeding

Seeding for the Publix Bob Brantley State Cup will be based on each team's league standings (Region III Premier League or SCSCL) for game results completed when the SC Youth Soccer calendar date indicates that Challenge league play ends.  Teams will be seeded in order based on the following:

SRPL Premier Division teams are seeded first in order of finish

  • If two or more SC teams are tied in the SRPL Premier Division than ties will be broken using SRPL Rule Section 2.b and Section 2.c
  • If a tie cannot be broken above than the teams' previous year's seeding in State Cup will be used to break the tie

    SRPL First Division teams are seeded next in order of point percentage

  • If two or more SC teams are tied in the SRPL First Division than ties will be broken using SRPL Rule Section 2.b and Section 2.c.
  • If a tie cannot be broken above than the teams' previous year's seeding in State Cup will be used to break the tie

 

SCSCL teams will be seeded next in order of SCSCL finish until all 12 spots are filled.

 

The highest seeded teams through will play their first round match at their home field until the Final 4
