Welcome to Premier SuperCopa 2020 The Most Prestigious U9-U12 Tournament In the U.S. In attempt to provide the most tournament action and the best competition available, the official SuperCopa Play-off System will be utilized. Because this may be different from most events, this section from the tournament rules has been included below. Please refer to the Home Page of the Tournament Website to review the rules in their entirety. There will be a period of time after completion of the group rounds before quarterfinal opponents and fields are finalized as the Tournament Committee verifies all teams' standings and points. GotSoccer updates will be sent to announce that play-off rounds are FINAL. Please be patient as we complete this manual process. ANYTHING you may see posted (including time & field assignments for the various playoff positions) are meaningless until the announcement has been made that playoff schedules are FINAL. Calling or visiting the Tournament Headquarters will only delay the process. Thank you for your understanding. ENJOY THE GAMES! SUPERCOPA PLAYOFF ROUNDS Premier SuperCopa provides playoff opportunities for EVERY participating team. Teams are grouped into the SuperCopa (Gold), Silver, or Bronze (24 team brackets only) bracket AND seeded within that bracket based on their points from the group round. After the SuperCopa group stage completes for all brackets (first three games), the group winners and highest point wildcards comprise the top 8 teams will make up the SuperCopa (Gold) bracket, the next 8 teams the Silver bracket and the remaining 8 teams the Bronze bracket (24 team brackets only). (*Please see SuperCopa Rules for modifications to playoff advancement based on bracket sizes) The top 8 teams will be determined by the winners of each group/bracket plus additional wild cards will be selected based on the teams with the highest point totals. In the event multiple teams are tied for the wildcard spots then tiebreaker rules will be used. Playoff opponents are chosen by seeding teams based on total points. Example, if the winner of bracket C has 30 points after their first three games and they have the highest total points among all teams then they will be placed as the 1st seed and will play the 8th seed (one of the wildcard teams). In the event that multiple teams are tied then tiebreaker rules (see Tournament Rules) will apply to determine seeding. Quarterfinal opponents are defined by the following seeding: 1st vs 8th 2nd vs 7th 3rd vs 6th 4th vs 5th Once the Quarterfinals are set, the single elimination tournament will play out as scheduled. There is NO reseeding after the Quarterfinals. The 8 teams that make up the Silver and Bronze brackets will be determined by total points from the Group Round games, and seeding inside the brackets will be determined by total points as well. Because variety of competition is a significant element of SuperCopa, the tournament committee reserves the right to adjust seeding by 1 position to avoid teams facing each other in quarter-finals who have already played each other during group rounds. Seeding adjustments are at the complete discretion of the tournament committee but will not be made to affect which playoff bracket a team has earned a spot in.
