U.S. Soccer Development Academy Club Realignment Tracker (Boys 3.0)

The recent shutdown of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy has left many clubs needing to find a new competitive platform for their top teams.

Since the official announcement of the DA’s closure, the soccer world has sprung into action, seeking to fill the void. Major League Soccer (MLS) unveiled its plans for a new Academy League, and the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL Boys) has ramped up its expansion efforts.

Meanwhile, the United Soccer League has announced more details on the USL Academy League, which be complimentary to existing youth leagues, and will begin play in Spring 2021.

To keep up with this evolving story, SoccerWire has launched a Boys DA Club Realignment Tracker, which will be updated regularly, as more former DA clubs finalize their plans for the 2020-2021 season.

DA Club representatives who would like to report their teams’ realignment plans for next season should send an email to [email protected].
