The 2021 Fall Missouri State Cup pool play weekend will be held October 15-17, 2021. The semis/finals weekend will be held October 23-24, 2021.

Round Robin will be played full days, one game per day on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. This event will be for the 15U thru 19U girls age groups.
This summer’s event will be held at the Creve Coeur Park Soccer Complex in Maryland Heights, MO.
