If you're participating in the WCP Cup because you're sick and tired of dealing with the Regina Soccer Association then beware: It has its fingers in everything. More specifically, the RSA has the power to determine whether or not you play, sit or are barred from the venue and it (along with the Saskatchewan Soccer Association) will also have final say on any and all disciplinary matters.
This occurs because the RSA and SSA are sanctioning bodies - something the WCP Cup needs desperately. No sanctioning = no insurance, no referees, no sponsors. While almost everything about the WCP organizing committee is different from the RSA, there is no way to escape its reach.
What this can mean in the short run is that any suspension you may have on your "record" going into the 2011 WCP Cup will likely have to be served during the tournament. Received your third yellow card during the final game of the RSA indoor season? Sit your first WCP game - regardless that its a completely new competition and common sense says it should have 0 bearing. Red card suspension still in effect from RSA co-ed fun tournament in 2010? Serve your games during the tournament. Even though you're only guaranteed five WCP Cup games, the RSA will make you sit now, not when you play in the 15-game-long season.
In the long run, you could find yourself suspended in the middle of the WCP Cup, completely out of the hands of the organizing committee. There is nothing in the WCP Cup rules about a yellow card limit, so I'm assuming the RSA rule of "3-and-sit-a-game" will be in effect. Think the slate is clean once playoffs roll around? Don't count on it because that's not how the RSA enforced the indoor season. Two yellow cards during the regular season + one in the playoffs = suspension.
Also, any red card will certainly be reviewed by the RSA and it will have final say on your suspension, not the WCP Cup. This will likely mean that if you received a red card last outdoor and you get another in this tournament then you're looking at double time for being a repeat offender in one calendar year.
So for everyone happy to be playing in the WCP Cup and its hyper-competitive games, beware that crossing the line can cost you more. $900 per team for only five games, and suddenly a one-game suspension is a whole lot more relevant.
