2016-17 NorCal State Cup Draw Information
Seeding process change for State Cup

The NorCal State Cup seeding process has been changed for the 2016-17 edition due to limited team information available to rank teams. This year, NorCal State Cup will host a Group Stage/Preliminary Round draw this summer as well as a Knockout Phase draw in the winter.

The Group Stage/Preliminary Round draw will take place in Sacramento, CA on Thursday, August 4th between 12pm-5pm. First, teams that are playing in the Preliminary Round will be drawn to play another team that is in the same area (North, South, East, West). Next, teams (or Prelim Game #'s) will be drawn into groups based on the Group Stage pots. You will notice Preliminary Round teams will not show on the Group Stage pots, instead Prelim Round Game #'s are posted. 

More detailed information about the draw format will be posted shortly, however, some basic information regarding the draw/seeding process can be found below.
