NPSL Northwest Conference grows to six clubs for 2017 season

The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) has been trying to gain a stronger foothold in the Northwest for a few years now. In 2017 there will be six clubs in the NPSL Northwest Conference, the most the league has ever had in our region.

The NPSL is sanctioned by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the governing body of soccer in the United States. The NPSL operates and is managed as a team-run league. The structure of the league allows each team to have one vote.  Each team is individually owned and operated, and is responsible for maintaining league minimum standards.

The NPSL lost 3 of 4 clubs in the Northwest after the 2014 season when Gorge FC (Hood River Oregon) Seattle Sporting FC (Bothell) and Inter United FC (Tukwila) all dropped from the league. In 2015 and 2016 just two clubs made up the Northwest Conference: OSA FC and FCM Portland.

The breakthrough came in the last off-season when the Kitsap Pumas (Kitsap Soccer Club) and Spokane SC Shadow joined.  Then, the OSA FC owner Giuseppe Pezzano decided to fund a second squad in the greater Tacoma area, Pierce County FC. Finally, an upstart second club in Portland came on board (PDX FC).

The NPSL Northwest will feature a 10-match season in 2017 with each club playing home and away.

The season kicks off on Saturday May 13 when PDX FC hosts OSA FC and Pierce County FC hosts FCM Portland.
