Pioneer Cup to kick off new season in South West
The South West Soccer Association is gearing up for the 2019 season and has just released key dates.
Important dates remain similar to the 2018 season, but marking a major change, the Pioneer Cup will this year be played as an optional pre-season competition.
SWSA president Steve Gibson said the change would benefit clubs’ preparation for the league season.
“With an all-new executive committee for 2019, we felt it important to provide a pre-season option for clubs which also simplifies the season’s fixtures,” Gibson said.
“The committee and I look forward to supporting and fostering South West soccer in 2019, with the Pioneer Cup change one of many improvements on the horizon.”
Further details, including Mike Coley Cup dates, will be released soon, with the comprehensive season fixture to be officially released on March 18.
