The Long Island Soccer Football League has opened early registration for the 2020 Ryder-Vass men’s and women’s Under-23 and U-20 tournaments.

Early registration fees are $600 for teams affiliated with Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association, Eastern New York State Soccer Association or U.S. Club Soccer. Non-affiliated teams will be charged $650. Late registration is an additional $50 fee.

The registration fee is not refundable, but will be applied toward the final registration cost.

Early registration ends Saturday, May 4. Any teams that register after that date will be charged $650. No exceptions will be made.

Registration must be completed by Saturday, May 16 for all teams. If any spots are available after that date, teams will be accepted on a conditional basis.

The tournament will begin in early June and continue throughout July.

Each team will be guaranteed a minimum of six games plus playoffs. The tournament will conclude on in July (date to be determined).

“As summer draws closer many teams are finishing their game schedules, many former players are returning from college,” LISFL president Gus Xikis said. “For some teams, it may be the last year in a league competition, for others fond memories of their former team.”

Xikis described the tournament as “the perfect venue to keep your team together” and how “the competition is outstanding with some of the best college players competing in the tournament. It’s the Premier tournament of it’s kind in the region.”

Players must be born on or after Jan. 1, 1997 to be eligible for the U-23 tournaments, although teams are allowed to field three over-age players.

For the U-20 tournaments, players must be born on or after Jan. 1, 2000. Over-age players are not permitted for the U-20 tournaments.
