While the division standings and playoff berths will be determined by overall league play, the introduction of the Evergreen Cup will bring attention and drama to the in-state rivalries between AC Seattle, Emerald City FC, Spokane Shine and the Seattle Reign Reserves presented by Issaquah SC (SRR Issaquah). Read the announcement [+]

Final standings
Evergreen Cup was the name voted on by readers of the two news sites, and is representative of the state’s nickname. By utilizing a broader state-wide theme, any future expansion within the state will allow for easy incorporation.

Largely self-explanatory, the logo for the Evergreen Cup incorporates the colors widely attributed to the northwest region’s forestry and waterways with a hint of beige for the Palouse (wheat) and red for the Yakima Valley (apple), two of the state’s well-known agricultural producers.  The three evergreen trees are representative of the original Washington WPSL clubs that began playing one another last year – Emerald City, Issaquah SC and Spokane Shine. The Evergreen Cup trophy is an 18-inch planter adorned with the logo's primary colors, blue and green, and features inside it a small evergreen tree that the championship team can plant at a special designated place, such as the stadium, training ground or office, to recognize the team's accomplishments publicly.
