The Northwest Premier League (NWPL) was formed back in early 2016 to give a place to place for adult elite amateur women’s teams around the Northwest. The league is getting ready for its third season in 2018 and recently announced the format for this year’s competition.
The groups will play the regular season from within and then the post season will likely see cross-pairings. Five each means that the clubs will play an 8-match campaign with 4 home and 4 away before the playoffs.
The NWPL is now in Oregon with the acceptance of Capital FC Women. Last year CFC played in the national WPSL. This year they become the first-ever venture by the Washington-based league across the border.
The addition of an Oregon club opens up plenty of possibilities to share through soccer. The Oregon Adult Soccer Association and the Oregon Referee Committee are just two examples of organizations that the NWPL might now work with in some way. Who knows where it could lead for women’s soccer in the Northwest.
