    With the USSF taking over the qualifying process for the USASA, US Club Soccer and USSSA beginning this fall, it's time to FINALLY work on completing the USASA qualifying records from 1995-2015.

    Nobody?

    Nothing else on Google?

    How about email to USSF for their archives? ;)

    I think we've picked Google clean (but anyone is welcome to try) ... and USSF only has the tournament proper back to 2000. Nothing before that.

    We've filled a couple holes in this list but there's still a lot to do if someone is interested in helping.

    Basically, the best approach is to call (don't email, most state associations, in my experience, aren't very good at replying in a timely manner) and try to track down someone who might have old records of past state and/or regional tournaments. Sometimes you'll get someone who will say "we've never entered the Open Cup" -- and that MAY be true, but it would be nice to confirm that. If the person is 1000% sure, then I guess we'll have to go with that, but some states might have only had one entry 20 years ago, and the person may not remember that.

    If you don't have any luck with the state associations, the next step is to ask if they know any local teams that MAY have competed in the tournament, or even a team that's been around for a while, they might have some records. If you can get team names that may have been involved, it's helpful and could open the door to more info (the nature of historical research, really)

    If you can help with this, drop me an email at www.thecup.us/contact-us

    Still need help with this ... all that's really required with this is to make some phone calls to some state associations.
