*This list does not include news organizations, individual teams or athletes, or any organization with a primarily professional focus or one outside of youth soccer.
The list was compiled by SoccerWire.com Editors, who reviewed hundreds of top associations, leagues, clubs, and tournaments believed most likely to boast large Twitter followings. However, we only published the top 25 for fear too many worthy accounts may have been missed beyond that threshold, and encourage other organizations fitting the criteria to contact @TheSoccerWire on Twitter or using this form to be added to the list for future months.
*Note, if you want to follow all of these 25 and all future additions in one place, we’ve created a Twitter List here: https://twitter.com/TheSoccerWire/lists/top-youth-soccer-twitters
