Creating Match Rosters & Printing Game Rosters

As always, every GPSD match will require a match roster. Our new and improved match rosters can now be accessed.

To create/modify your roster you can view the instructions located here. These will help you creating, adding players, etc.

For each match you will need to provide a copy of this to the match official. How to get the roster you created into a paper form for the match is explained here: Click here for match roster instuctions

Only team managers have access to do this - so if someone else on your team needs the ability to do this please have any of the current managers contact me and I can grant this access.

GPSD Spring 2020 Division Alignment

GPSDs policy is that we will move one team up and one team down (promotion/relegation); however, we reserve the right to move more than that and also move teams around to try and adhere to a competitive balance. We do this based off past results and team input during registration (we ask for teams suggested division). Below is a short explanation of each division and how it will be scheduled.

Open Division - This division was able to adhere to our one up (promotion) / one down (relegation) model. One team did not re-register from D1 Fall 2019, this put six (6) teams in each division. Each team will play each opponent in its division twice during the season.

O30s - This division was realigned back to three divisions (O30s 1st, O30s 2nd, and O30s 3rd), as it was a couple years ago based on team registrants. We received 18 registrations, which allowed us to adhere back to the three divisions of six (6) teams each. As above, each team will play each of its opponents twice during the season.

O40s - This division was realigned to four divisions (O40s 1st, O40s 2nd, O40s 3rd, and O40s 4th) in a 7-7-7-8 format. This format was chosen based on past results of the teams within each division from Fall 2019 as well as taking into account the teams division requests that came in. Two new teams also joined the O40s age bracket and were placed accordingly. Seven (7) team divisions (O40s 1st, O40s 2nd, and O40s 3rd) will play four of their opponents twice and the other two opponents once. The eight (8) team division (O40s 4th) will be scheduled as if it's two separate divisions. Using the Fall 2019 rankings, the four highest ranked teams (21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th) will play each other twice and each of the other four teams (25th, 26th, 27th, and 'New Team') once, while the 4 lowest ranked teams (25th, 26th, 27th, and 'New Team') will play each other twice and each of the other 4 higher ranked teams (21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th) once.

Note: New Teams will be treated as ranked lowest in their respective division for scheduling purposes.

O50s - As with the Open division, this division was able to adhere to our one up / one down model. 1st division, with seven (7) teams, will be scheduled just as the O40s divisions that contain seven (7) teams. The O50s 2nd division, containing five (5) teams, will see each team playing a division opponent twice, but two of the teams three (3) times.

O58s - This division is one division of eight (8) teams and will be scheduled in the same format as O40s 4th division, which also contains eight (8) teams.

O65s - This division is waiting on a 4th team and should it register this division will see each team play each opponent three times, while playing one opponent a 4th time.

Portland Timbers Home Matches and GPSD Policy

GPSD makes every effort to not schedule its matches during the same day as the Timbers home MLS matches (this does not include Preseason, Open Cup or other league affiliated matches). With that said, there could be occassions where a GPSD match is scheduled on a Timbers home match day - if this is done the match will be scheduled in the following manner:

- If a match is scheduled before the Timbers scheduled kickoff time. It will be scheduled to end at least 2 hours before the scheduled kickoff

- If a match is scheduled after the Timbers scheduled kickoff time. It will be scheduled to start at least 4 hours after the scheduled kickoff

- If the MLS changes the kickoff time within 72 hours of the originally scheduled GPSD match, there is a possibility that your match may not be rescheduled - but every effort will be made to should it be requested

2020 Timbers home matches that conflict with the GPSD Spring 2020 season:

3/28 (Sat) @ 7:30 PM

4/11 (Sat) @ 7:30 PM

4/25 (Sat) @ 7:00 PM

5/2 (Sat) @ 12:30 PM

5/17 (Sun) @ 2:00 PM

6/13 (Sat) @ 2:00 PM

Announcing 2020 City of Portland Nations Cup Tournament (May 22-25, 2020)

The GPSD organization, after some discussion of the board of directors; have decided to try and bring back some of the old soccer events (i.e. tournaments, cups, etc…), that were once very popular in the Portland metro area.

For that purpose the will organize the Nations’ Cup tournament during the Memorial Day weekend holiday in 2020. OASA has also offered their support for this tournament and we are very excited to be bringing it back to Portland.

It shall consist of five (5) divisions: Open 1st, Open 2nd, O/30, O/40, O/50 with any of those divisions being broken into multiple groups depending on number of registered teams. The tournament is scheduled to take place at Delta Park or the Eastside Timbers Sports Complex in Gresham.

Registration for the tournament will be available on the website early in 2020.

The tournament registration is anticipated to be $450/team. The league is interested in prompting the spirit of soccer in Oregon; as well as bringing back the old glory of the game to Portland. To the registered teams – there will be a set of tournament rules sent to them and these rules will also be posted on the GPSD website.
