RICHMOND, VA – The ECNL Boys has announced the launch of its third Regional League for the 2020-2021 season, the ECNL Boys Regional League – SoCal.
The brand new league will kick off play this fall with 14 ECNL Boys Member Clubs from the Southwest Conference, servicing the deep pool of talent within each club and enhancing individual player progression opportunities.
