CHARLESTON, S.C. (May 13, 2013) – US Club Soccer has announced the creation of the South Central Premier League, the 19th league in the organization’s National Premier Leagues (NPL).

The South Central Premier League joins the Northeast Girls NPL as the newest additions to the NPL platform, with seven clubs from Oklahoma and Texas set to compete in the U-13 through U-17 boys and girls age groups, beginning in Fall 2013:

  • Blitz United SC (Okla.)
  • Dynamos SC (Texas)
  • Eclipse SC (Texas)
  • Houston Express SC (Texas)
  • Liverpool FC America (Texas)
  • Space City FC (Texas)
  • TFC (Texas)

“The NPL is thrilled to be adding another top-quality league to our competitive landscape,” NPL General Manager Chris Baer said. “The creation of the South Central Premier League once again shows the strength of the NPL platform in helping clubs develop top players and teams in meaningful league competition.”

Teams will play a combination of division and cross-division games, with the top teams moving into a playoff to crown the league champion. The winners of the South Central Premier League will qualify for next year’s NPL Champions Cup, where they will take on top competition from the across the country in a “champions league” competition. The 2013 NPL Champions Cup will be held July 18-22 in Aurora, Colo.

“Everyone involved is very excited about the South Central Premier League and the upcoming competition,” Eclipse SC Director of Coaching Luis Labastida said. “The clubs, players and fans are looking forward to playing in the National Premier Leagues, and we are all excited about opening more doors for our players in every respect.”

Players in the South Central Premier League will also enjoy multiple avenues to be scouted for inclusion in U.S. Soccer’s national team program, via US Club Soccer’s id2 Program and Player Development Programs (PDPs), which are regionally based identification and development programs centered around NPLs.

“Blitz United is extremely excited to take part in the NPL,” Blitz United SC Director of Coaching Robbie Mitchell said. “We believe this opportunity will give our players more exposure to quality competition, and US Club Soccer has done a great job of aligning clubs with similar aspirations together.”
