Decatur to Host Governor's Cup and Division I and II State Soccer Tournaments in 2012

The Alabama Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) has announced that the Division I Powerade State Cup (U15-U18), Division II State Cup (U14-U18), Governor’s Cup, and Division I Powerade Final Four will return to Decatur, Alabama in 2012. The city of Decatur has hosted the tournaments since 2007.
The Division I Powerade State Cup and Division II State Cup are set for November 2-4, 2012 with the Governor’s Cup and Division I Powerade State Cup Final Four following on November 9-11, 2012 at the Jack Allen Recreation Complex. The Governor’s Cup, a recreational competition at the state level, decides which teams are Division III (recreation) state champions and has been previously featured by the Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel as the largest recreational tournament for 9- to 18-year olds in Alabama.

AYSA is the governing body for all soccer clubs in Alabama who qualify to participate in these events. For more information on the State Cup, Governor’s Cup, and Final Four tournaments, visit the AYSA’s website at 

The Jack Allen Recreation Complex contains 10 international size lighted fields with laser-graded certified sports turf and a computerized irrigation system. With the additional fields located in Point Mallard Park, Decatur has quickly become known nationally as a top rated soccer tournament location.
