As a state-wide competition, we have consulted with, or been been contacted by various clubs, teams participating in our State Cup and State Premier League programs, following the winter storm activity earlier this week.

Some areas within ENY received substantial accumulations of snow, while others received dramatically less than forecasted. 

After considering input from different areas within the ENY at-large footprint, and considering various factors (# of scheduled matches on synthetic vs natural surface fields), please note the following decision by ENYYSA regarding status of ALL ENY State Cup & ENY Premier League (ENYPL) games for the weekend of 3/18-19;

 ALL matches remain as presently scheduled.
