GIG HARBOR, WA— The Western Washington Premier League (WWPL) held its annual organizational meeting on Wednesday December 5 in Gig Harbor. The group included five new clubs as the league grows to eleven for the 2019 season.
Ups and Downs
The WWPL will embrace a promotion and relegation system starting with the 2020 season. The details of how the system will be implemented (number of clubs going up/down, whether or not there will be playoffs to decide) will be addressed before that season. For now, the clubs have agreed that the 2019 season final table will decide a top 6 that start life in a new top division in 2020. The bottom 5 will continue on in a second division. Any new clubs coming in to the WWPL in 2020 and beyond will do so in the lowest available division and will need to play their way up. The league is currently accepting applications for the 2020 season.
The 2019 season will kick off the final week of April and will extend to the third week of July. Clubs will play each other once for a 10-match season of 5 home and 5 away. Waiting for the clubs as they entered the meeting was a master schedule detailing home and away match ups (see below.) The clubs will network and confirm dates, times and venues in the coming months.
