Indiana Soccer - Club Esports Series


COVID-19 also known as the coronavirus has affected jobs, schools, and events on a global level as well as here in the United States. Indiana Youth Soccer has with much regret in response to the pandemic, has cancelled outdoor soccer.

It is our hope that now we can use the online nature of esports in order to allow our players to continue to engage in spirited competition with one another while we await the return of grass soccer.

The Clubs have spent a considerable amount of time and energy this past week dealing with COVID-19, so we are using the first scheduled match of the season on March 19 as a pre-season match, and delaying the official start of the esports league to Tuesday, March 31.  This is simply to allow more players the opportunity to register while still giving our current players a chance to play this week, so we may have a league that encompasses even more players.

Please sign up below and we will communicate with you any further changes!


Welcome to the Indiana Soccer Champions eLeague!  A great opportunity to play and learn the game of soccer from a new perspective - a digital one!  You will be scheduled to compete in weekly matches against your fellow club soccer players in the video game FIFA '20.  Playing two matches a week, you will participate for the length of the season until we crown a final winner.

A fun and exciting way to challenge your fellow club players in the digital field.

Schedule Format

All players will participate in 2 matches per week, played on Tuesday afternoons at 1:00pm and 1:45pm.  Total play time will not exceed one and a half hours.

Official Rules

Coaches League Pre-season Friendly ...

Hey Coaches!  Thanks for joining the Coaches league!  While we continue to get the league promoted and onboard new coaches and players, we thought it would be good for you to play a Pre-Season friendly so you can get introduced to the way the system works.  Tonight at 7:30pm and 8:15pm, we have you scheduled to play against each other.  If you need to move the time, that's ok!  Just communicate with each other and set up the time through the Match Lobby.

Many Clubs have not yet promoted the league as well, so we expect a number of new players to register after this week.  The official start of the Regular Season will be April 7, 2020.

The rest of this email will describe in detail how to play in the matches.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reply back to this message or contact for further assistance.

Good luck and have fun!


Step 1:  Find Your Scheduled Matches

The scheduled matches are in your League Portal page, which is where you went to originally register for the league.  To find your Leagues and find your Game Lobby, please see the instructions found on this page:

Docs: After You Join a League

Step 2: How to Play Your Opponent

Once you have located your specific game, you must communicate directly with your Opponent in order to find each other's gamer tag information and communicate the league rules and other information.  In each Game Lobby, there is a private chat room available to yourself, your opponents, and league team members.  In this chat, share your gamertag and other instructions to find each other within the game.  Please be patient and work together!

Step 3:  Report Your Scores!

After you complete your match, the Winner of the match should return to the GYO Game Lobby in order to report your score.  Do not forget to do this, as this is how we update the standings!  Instructions are at the bottom of the previous link, How to Play Your Matches.


That's it!  It is very easy to communicate with your opponent to have a great game and report your score.  If you have any issues during the process, the league Administrators will be in the chat rooms to assist during the preseason if there are any issues, so simply community in your Game Lobby Chat.  If you are struggling to find the Game Lobby, please contact
