US Club Soccer and NorCal Premier announce long-term sanctioning extension
CHARLESTON, S.C. – US Club Soccer and NorCal Premier Soccer have announced an extension of their sanctioning agreement, as the leading soccer organizations continue their strong partnership first bonded in 2004.
The NorCal NPL has been a partner to US Club Soccer on and off the field: fostering the growth of more than 200 clubs; leading in coaching education, player identification and development; expanding resources to underserved communities; hosting an annual state cup; and promoting US Club Soccer’s Players First programming.
“NorCal Premier is an outstanding soccer organization, which has been part of US Club Soccer since its founding,” said US Club Soccer CEO/Executive Director Kevin Payne. “We are thrilled we are aligned for another five years and look forward to working together to find new ways to move our game forward.”
“NorCal Premier Soccer is pleased to extend our partnership with US Club Soccer,” said NorCal Premier President Benjamin Ziemer. “During these difficult times, we believe continuity is vital for our member clubs. This agreement provides continued resources, sanctioning, club membership, player and staff registration, NPL, id2, LaLiga educational opportunities and, importantly, insurance for our club members.”
