All clubs interested in hosting a tournament in the state must seek approval from the State Soccer Association (DYSA)

Delaware Youth Soccer Association will only sanction the hosting of a tournament for member clubs



Member Clubs must be in good standing with DYSA to host a tournament.  DYSA does not issue Permission to Host to organizations that are not affiliated with DYSA.  When a private organization or facility is requesting hosting permission, the permission will only be granted to the club and not to the facility, organization or sponsoring member of the tournament.


Procedures for Submitting a Permission to Host

To obtain Permission to Host, complete the Application to Host and the Tournament Host Agreement. Submit completed forms and a fee of $25.00 to the DYSA Office.  Please include a copy of the Tournament Rules.


Hosting Teams from outside of the United States

If you are inviting teams from outside of the United States, you must obtain permission from United States Soccer Federation (USSF). Download the USSF APPLICATION TO HOST A TOURNAMENT OR GAMES INVOLVING FOREIGN TEAMS form. Complete the form and send it to DYSA along with your DYSA Permission to Host and a check for $75.00 made payable to USSF.  DYSA will forward the form to US Soccer along with your approved Permission to Host form.  Instructions for completing the USSF form are on the aback of the form.


Post Tournament Report

The hosting organization must complete a Post Tournament Report and submit to DYSA Office within 30 days after the tournament.  Failure to file a report shall preclude the tournament from receiving sanction for any tournament for the following seasonal years until the report is filed.
