US Club Soccer and the National Premier Leagues (NPL) welcome the newly created Arizona NPL as part of a new regional alignment in the southwestern United States. Beginning in fall 2016, qualifiers from the Arizona NPL will be a part of a regional playoff event against qualifiers from the Southern California NPL to determine NPL Finals berths.
The Arizona NPL will feature six clubs and 11-U through 18-U boys and girls teams. Teams will compete September through early November 2016, take a winter hiatus, and then finish their regular season schedules in March and April 2017.
Arizona NPL member clubs are:
- Arizona Arsenal (Gilbert)
- CCV Stars (Peoria)
- SC del Sol (Phoenix)
- Scottsdale Blackhawks (Scottsdale)
- Sereno SC (Phoenix)
- Tucson Soccer Academy (Tucson)
In addition, 15-U through 17-U girls teams within the Arizona NPL are eligible to compete in the NPL Showcase, which will hold its third edition Dec. 29-31, 2016 in Florida.
