Premier League Title To unCOACHables
Season champion Barley Bros and unCOACHables battled through tough semi-final matches before squaring-off in the final of the Premier League - in the end, unCOACHables added to their trophy case (t-shirt closet) a tournament title with a decisive performance in the final.
Champions League Title To unCOACHables
The last game on the last night of Champions League play packed all the drama one could've hoped for as unCOACHables earned their necessary win over Deportivo Santa Cruz to capture the inaugural Champions League title.
They, along with Fake Madrid, Barley Bros and Kevin's Little Sparkles, secure a spot in the 2015 Champions League. The remaining spots can be captured in the end-of-season tournaments in January.

2014 Rule Change In Effect
Bloomington Soccer is a community of players and fans who love the beautiful game. We recognize there are times when mismatches occur on the field. In those mismatches, more time is wasted resetting play at midfield after every goal, than most would care to experience.
In the Winter, 2014, season alone, 30 percent of the nearly 190 games played, featured final scores with at least a 7-goal margin. Since "Goals-For" is NOT a tie-breaker in our tournament seedings, those large scoring totals didn't matter in the end.
"Goals-Against" is a tie-breaker, and it was used just once last Winter as we seeded 53 teams in various tournaments. Following the implementation of this rule, we'll review any abnormal changes in the seeding process.
In the end, this rule along with the establishment of the Champions League (see below), should help promote playing time within games and lessen the agony of the occassional mismatch, without overtly penalizing a well-skilled offensive team.
Barley Bros Wins Early Fall Season
Barley Bros made themselves a Champions League favorite, proving their might against perennial powerhouse unCOACHables/Uptown FC in the final of games of the Early Fall Season.
Though down a man early, unCOACHables kept the game close - but in the end Barley Bros denied their opponents goals and scored enough to secure the title.
This fall, Bloomington Soccer introduces a Champions League feature to the Ad Rec THU season, where the top teams battle for Champions League honors through regular season play. In addition, the end-of-season tournaments provide other teams the chance to qualify for the upcoming Champions League season.
Based on their Spring, 2014, regular season performance, these 8 teams have qualified for the inaugural Champions League season: Fake Madrid, Step Dads, Bl Internationals, unCOACHables, Barley Bros, Felix FC, Bhandari FC and Deportivo Santa Cruz.
