Default New GDA Tier 1 & 2 Cup brackets

Am I missing something? Why no Portland Thorns?

I thought that was just the boys' DA that was being split into tiers. Hadn't heard anything about the girls; there's not enough girls clubs to make that worthwhile.

Itís not a full split. Just for the season ending ďcup,Ē because if thereís one thing youth soccer needs itís another championship.

The statement from GDA said all clubs are included in the cup. But thorns are not in any of the brackets which was the OPís point.

Thorns opted out. Either because they didnít want to spend the money to send their teams or because they knew they wouldnít be competitive.

Very strange. Do not see Thorns Academy listed at all. It says all clubs so they should be in the bottom tier somewhere. Is it a mistake or is it because of the players that ditched the Thorns to play high school? Reign is in the cup.

If Thorns are going against GDA rules and allowing public high school play, then maybe they were banned from the GDA Cup?

Do they have enough players to field older teams if they are allowing all the girls to play high school soccer?
