Soccer Alliance of Arizona


ABOUT THE SOCCER ALLIANCE OF ARIZONA

The Soccer Alliance of Arizona (SAAZ), a new member of the National Premier Leagues for the 2022-23 season, was formed to elevate youth standards in the state by ensuring a more professional experience for families, players, and coaches.

The six founding clubs are:

  • Arizona Arsenal SC
  • Arizona SC
  • FC Tucson Youth
  • Phoenix Premier FC
  • Phoenix Rising FC
  • RSL Arizona

Please visit soccerallianceaz.com for a full listing of member clubs.

A technical committee oversees all technical aspects of the league. This aligns with US Club Soccer’s guiding principles that soccer people should make soccer decisions, local decisions should be made locally, and the sport deserves professional management.

The top competitive level of the SAAZ is an NPL division with U-13 through U-19 boys and girls teams across three divisions: NPL, NPL 1, and NPL 2. Winners qualify for US Club Soccer’s NPL postseason, where they’ll compete for National Premier Leagues championships.
