The Eastern Premier Soccer League are proud to announce that we have received provisional status as an official multi-state (or “Regional”) league. This enables a stronger relationship and assistance in oversight over interstate league related discussions. League Secretary, Bill Marth, who has working towards these goals was very enthusiastic to share his thoughts, “The EPSL is very happy to be part of USASA and we’re proud of our partnerships with the local leagues. More exciting news to be released within the next few weeks.”
The EPSL is now one of the few multi-state leagues in the Eastern United States, if not the only one currently, to emphasize a strong relationship between independent clubs with their state associations, as well as USASA and USASA Region 1. All clubs will still register their players with their state associations. Clubs that are part of the EPSL and their partner feeder leagues will play a September to June league season where they play the strongest amateur clubs, earn their way up to a higher level of competition, but also have access to competing in all of the available state, regional, and national cups including the prestigious US National Amateur Cup.
League dues, combined with registration fees mean that club growth and player development can be accomplished at reasonable operating costs, with plenty of opportunities to gain prize money and national exposure. EPSL clubs are constantly competing for national cups, and with this latest development, the opportunities will only continue to grow.
