Mid-Atlantic Premier League


US Club Soccer is proud to announce the formation of the Mid-Atlantic Premier League in collaboration with nine member clubs from New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The league will be the newest addition to the National Premier Leagues (NPL) platform, beginning with the 2024-25 season.

Here are the member clubs, which in addition to currently playing in ECNL Regional League, now have an additional level of play within the NPL for their U-13 through U-19 teams:

  • FC Copa Academy (NJ)
  • Lehigh Valley United – Rush (PA)
  • LI Slammers (NY)
  • Manhattan SC (NY)
  • New Jersey Crush (NJ)
  • Next Level SA (NJ)
  • NY Surf (NY)
  • Quickstrike FC (NY)
  • Sporting Club Premier – PDA (NJ)

The Mid-Atlantic Premier League’s inaugural season, the 2024-25 campaign, will feature girls teams from these clubs. Expansion to also include boys competition is expected in the future.

The Mid-Atlantic Premier League represents a successful collaboration of two long-time youth soccer platforms – the ECNL, which was founded in 2009, and the NPL, which launched in 2011. ECNL Regional Leagues and NPL member leagues have formed complementary levels of competition in several regions.
