  1. Will those same clubs enter teams into ECNL? Or does ECNL get only teams that didn’t get accepted by GDA? Or does ECNL fold into NPL? I’ll be curious to see where ECNL goes from here…


    1. Good questions! What I heard is that ECNL will become the second tier league starting next summer when the GDA kicks off. And ECNL is planning to add boys apparently also. But not sure where that leaves NPL. The issues with second teams competing in ECNL is that there will now be much more travel for these second teams. How many families on the second teams will want to commit to the time and cost of this? So NPL might have an advantage because it has many more local/regional teams so it’s logistically much easier, and much cheaper too. So might that force ECNL to open the doors to many more clubs? We shall see…
