NPSL Expansion Opportunities

The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) is a member-driven national league committed to the support of its teams on and off the field and growing the sport nationally.  NPSL operates in the 4th Division of the U.S. Soccer pyramid under the sanctioning of U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) and the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA).  NPSL Teams are annually awarded many spots in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. 

The NPSL operates in over 90 markets across the country and remains one of the fastest-growing soccer leagues in the U.S.  NPSL has a strong relationship with the North American Soccer League (NASL), with many NASL teams operating in the NPSL as reserve teams.  The NPSL is committed to growing the sport of soccer in the United States in a sustainable way and maintaining value to its existing teams.  New member applications are currently being accepted.  

NPSL will open the expansion application process for new Memberships in March of 2017.
