ECNL Development League


All Pre-ECNL competitions must meet and adhere to the guidelines set forth by the ECNL in the 2019-2020 ECNL Competition Rules, Section 7 and Exhibit E and be approved by the ECNL Commissioner in writing.

No competition(s) shall be referred to as a “Pre-ECNL” competition nor shall the ECNL Logo be used by or associated with any competition without pre-approval from the ECNL Commissioner in writing using the process outlined in Exhibit E. Once the ECNL Commissioner in writing approves the application, the ECNL will pass it onto US Club Soccer to further review for official sanctioning. Upon approval, the host may begin organizing the competition, pursuant to ECNL Competition Guidelines and Regulations (Section 7 and Exhibit E).
