March 5, 2019 - The JFC Premier Cup tournament previously scheduled for April 27-28, 2019 is postponed until next year's tournament in 2020.
Gray Massey, a long time Jackson Futbol Club coach, suddenly passed away at the age of 41 on January 27, 2019. He leaves behind a wife and two young children, Reid (10) and Ryleigh (8). Gray was very well known in Mississippi and left lasting impressions on everyone he came in contact with whether at the youth level or college level. The last club he was the director of coaching at was Alliance Futbol Club in Meridian, MS. They are hosting the Alliance Open Cup, April 27-28. This tournament will be the beginning of a scholarship fund to be created for Gray's children. So we have decided rather than compete with a tournament an hour away from us, we would rather support them in honor of Gray and the impact he made on all players in the Jackson area. We encourage teams that were planning to come the JFC Premier Cup, to please apply to the Alliance FC Open Cup in Meridian, MS that weekend instead. JFC will also be sending its teams as well as referees to participate in the Alliance FC Open Cup. Other area clubs will be doing the same. Thank you in advance for your support of Alliance FC's great event in honor of Gray Massey and we look forward to seeing teams back at JFC for the 2020 JFC Premier Cup - April 24-26, 2020.
2020 Tournament Date: April 24-26, 2020 Open to all C2/D2/Rec-Plus teams. Mississippi teams - If your team is eligible to compete in MSA Elite Cup and didn't participate in the MCSL league, then you are eligible for this tournament. Registration will open December 1, 2019.
NEW for 2020 - Lower level D1 teams WILL be considered on a case by case basis !
