Tie Breakers: In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined as follows:

1. The winner of head to head competition.

2. Goal Differential (there is no limit on goal difference)

3. Goals For (there is no limit on goals scored)

4. Goals Against

5. Most Wins

6. Penalty Shoot Out

Tie Breakers: (if 3 or more teams are tied)  If more than two teams are involved in a tie, tie breaker number 2 (only if one team has not beaten the other 2, 3, 4 teams, {only relevant in a crossover bracket}) will be used first to rank the teams. If all teams are still tied, tie breaker number 3 will be used to rank the teams, and so on until a tie is broken.  Once a team has been ranked higher or lower, the next tie breaking criteria will be used to continue to rank the teams.  If more than two teams are still tied after tie breaker number 5, a coin toss will be held with the odd team sitting out.  The other two teams will then take kicks from the mark to establish a winner.  The winner of this will then play the team sitting out. (kicks from the mark). The winner will advance.  When all teams will advance to the playoff rounds a coin toss, as sequenced above, will decide the team’s seed in lieu of kicks from the mark

Example #1.  Three teams have 6 points and have all defeated each other.  Team A has a goal differential of +6, Team B is +4 and Team C is +3.  Team A is 1st, Team B is 2nd and Team C is 3rd.

Example #2.  Three teams have 6 points and have all defeated each other.  Team A has a goal differential of +6, Team B is +4 and Team C is +4.  Team A is 1st.  Team B has scored 4 goals and Team C has scored 3 goals.  Team B is 2nd and Team C is 3rd based on Tie Breaker #3 (Goals For)

Example #3. Three teams have 6 points and have all defeated each other.  Team A has a goal differential of +2, Team B is +3 and Team C is +3.  Team B and Team C each have scored 9 goals, but Team B has only conceded 1 goal, Team C has conceded 2 goals.  Team B is #1, Team C is #2 and Team A is #3.  (Please note if one team is ranked higher or lower, the TIE BREAKING PROCEDURE does not revert to tie breaker #1)


Acts of God: Rain or other weather conditions during the tournament shall not delay play unless the referee determines the field to be unsafe for play. In the event of such a delay or postponement games will be rescheduled if at all possible.  If a match has played more than a half, the Tournament Director may declare the result of the match to stand. If games cannot be rescheduled or played due to rain, weather, or other Acts of God there will be no refund of fees.



Legacy Fields

2024 College Showcase Field Map:  Here

The Tsakopoulos Family Soccer Complex, previously known as the Davis Legacy Soccer Complex, and commonly refereed to as Legacy Fields, is a privately operated 63 Acre soccer facility conveniently located off of Interstate 80 in South Davis.

To get to Legacy Fields from Sacramento, take the first exit (E. Chiles Rd) just at the west end of the Yolo Causeway. Turn right at E. Chiles Rd (the road that the off-ramp ends at) and go under the freeway (the signs are directing you towards 80 East). Continue on the frontage road on the south of the freeway (E. Chiles Rd.) for approximately 1.5 miles until Road 105D. There should be a sign for the DYSL Soccer Fields. Turn left on Road 105D, the fields are on the left.

To get to Legacy Fields from the Bay Area, take the Mace Blvd. exit. At the end of the off-ramp turn left on Chiles Road. Continue approximately 1.7 miles east on Chiles Road, past the car dealerships. Turn right on Road 105D. There should be a sign for the DYSL Soccer Fields. The fields are on the left.

Portable toilet facilities are available.

Davis Legacy has a strict NO dog policy at all times.  We realize that many of our members are responsible dog owners with friendly dogs, but for reasons reviewed at our board meeting, we have had to create a NO DOG policy at our complex.  This means no dogs at Legacy Fields at all times (ie training, games, or tournaments) as well as no dogs at any of the fields/venues being used during tournaments.  Appropriately identified/licensed assistance animals are allowed.
