First-Ever ECNL Boys Regional League Set for Launch in Florida
RICHMOND, VA (May 14, 2020) – The ECNL Boys will officially launch a limited Regional League platform for the 2020-2021 season, with the first league formed in partnership with the Florida Club League and expecting 10 clubs in the ECNL Regional League Division in the inaugural season.
“The establishment of ECNL Boys Regional Leagues will support the growth of our member clubs in a new way, extending league resources and opportunities to more players within their developmental systems,” said ECNL Boys Commissioner Jason Kutney. “The ECNL Regional League will serve as an excellent barometer for player growth within a club, enabling directors to evaluate performance levels in a league that aligns with their club’s ECNL philosophy, standards, and practices.”
The ECNL Boys Regional League – Florida division will be the new added division to the Florida Club League to mirror the club-based platform that the ECNL provides, and will include competition at six age groups from U13 to U18/19.
The following clubs will be participating in the ECNL Boys Regional League – Florida in the 2020-2021 season:
