Becomes Fourth ECNL Club in Virginia to Join Unified Platform
April 26, 2021 (Fairfax, VA) – The ECNL Regional League - Virginia announces Arlington Soccer is the sixth club to accept an invitation to join as a new member for 2021-22. Arlington Soccer joined the Boys ECNL in 2020 and was recently accepted into the Girls ECNL for 2021. It will be the fourth Virginia ECNL club to add the Regional League to its competition structure and unifies the development pathway and opportunity for its players.
“Arlington Soccer is one the largest and most successful clubs in Virginia,” said VPSL President Mike Cullina. “Their addition to the league and each of new members added over the past month have clearly established the ECNL and ECNL Regional League as the top competitive platforms in Virginia and forces the league and each of its member clubs to raise standards to meet the needs of our players.”
Arlington Soccer, a member of the Boys and Girls ECNL, joins Loudoun Soccer, Richmond United (Richmond Strikers and Richmond Kickers) and Virginia Development Academy (Prince William Soccer and Virginia Soccer Association) as full members of the unified platform.
"We are excited to join the ECNL Regional for our top tier travel program. This enables us to reduce the number of leagues we participate in and unite our Academy program and Red teams under the ECNL Umbrella. The ECNL Regional League will provide a platform and pathway to high-level competition in the state while offering opportunities regionally and nationally."
