    He was refering to the regional league we were discussing called the PPL, not the PDL. The northern most PDL team in California that I know of is the Burlingame Dragons, U23 team for San Jose.

    The PPL might not have the same goals as the UPSL now that I think of it after seeing the UPSL website. But who knows.

    CSL USA might not be completely dead after all. They just posed to their Facebook for the first time since February 4th and are claiming to be "expanding and nation-wide". Still no word if they actually played a 2016 season...so I am doubtful about this "news"

    CSLUSA website is back up, on a different service. Still pretty amateur, but at least it exists.

    They are claiming "nation-wide expansion underway" with teams across the north east. I doubt it, but we will see.

    I've spoken to Tim and Jon in the past and they have both positive and negative experiences with amateur soccer in Massachusetts. It will be interesting to see how much they incorporate the lessons from prior hardships into this venture.

    I think that the NPSL team is a re-brand of the old Lowell team NPSL franchise, however, the old Lowell team still exists .The old Lowell Twitter, Facebook, and such all remain active and say they are playing in the CSLUSA. So, this, along with the below statement from the Greater Lowell NPSL team website, leads me to believe that the owner bought the franchise and is re-branding them, while the old operation remains and is joining a different league (CSLUSA). What is unknown is why she would re-brand them as a new team and why the old team is joining the CSLUSA instead of just keeping the whole operation together.

    To answer my own question I found out last night this means that the winner of the PPL will now get an automatic berth into the US Open Cup!

    The PLA said the same thing last year, but like everybody not from the PDL and NPSL, went through the qualifying stages.

    That sucks to hear, did they make a promise they couldn't keep or did they just straight up lie about it?

    I believe attendances are down int he EPLWA? Talking to fans of the Vancouver Victory their owner cracked down on the supporter group and now they play in a quiet stadium.
