Someone asked about this week and I said there wasn't much news yet. But now there is. Or at least some discussion about the process from TheCup.US http://thecup.us/2016/05/02/ussfs-n...ess-has-challenges-to-address-after-year-one/ Basically, three issues have been brought up based on how the qualifying tournament worked for this year. 1. Travel - having a national tournament with uneven participation has led to a lot of travel for teams that can't afford it. 2. Roster rules - having to set a roster pretty early in the fall that will be mostly consistent through the next year is difficult for amateur teams. 3. PDL/NPSL advantage - the roster deadlines mean that teams attempting to qualify through the tournament can't really use college players. PDL and NPSL teams qualify through league play so they can. It will be interesting to see what changes the USSF might implement for this fall's tournament.
