CHARLESTON, S.C. (June 27, 2019) – The most recently established division of the New York Club Soccer League is experiencing rapid growth as teams continue to accept invitations to the team-based NPL division of the NYCSL. A total of 54 different clubs, encompassing over 150 teams will compete in the inaugural season of the team-based NPL division among 12- U through 19-U boys and girls age groups.

In addition to the new NPL team-based platform, the club-based NPL competition will see the introduction of three new clubs to the girls divisions, along with the previously announced expansion to the boys side.
