RICHMOND, Va. (April 4, 2023) – On the heels of last week’s ECNL Regional League additions, the ECNL Girls are excited to announce the acceptance of 30 new clubs to the ECNL Regional League, as well as the formation of two new ECNL Regional Leagues for the 2023-24 season.

Acceptance into the ECNL Regional League was based on exceptional club performances this season in a number of different leagues around the country. Clubs from the NPL, E64, USYS National Leagues, and DPL earned the opportunity to play in the ECNL Regional League in 2023-2024. Beyond the great local and regional competition and college showcasing available in the ECNL Regional League, these clubs also have a potential pathway to earn promotion to the ECNL Club Competition in the future.

This fall will be the inaugural season for the ECNL Regional League – Mountain and the ECNL Regional League – Northeast. Eight clubs across Colorado and Utah will come together to form the ECNL Regional League – Mountain, while an additional 20 clubs across six states will form the ECNL Regional League – Northeast. The 2023-2024 season will feature 17 different ECNL Girls Regional Leagues nation-wide.
