NYCSL METRO LEAGUE
The NYCSL METRO LEAGUE is a Club based League, modeled on the NYCSL NPL platform. The METRO LEAGUEe will serve as a pathway for club teams to be promoted to the NYCSL NPL league, as well as for NPL club teams to be relegated to the Metro league.
The Metro League is offered to both BOYS and GIRLS. To be considered for the NYCSL METRO LEAGUE, a club must satisfy all of the following criteria:
Must have competitive teams in either of the following ages groups 2007-2004 and/or 2003-2001
Must have a Director of Coaching
Must have appropriate home fields
Must be in good standing with the league as well as US Club
This Season (Fall 2017/Spring 2018) NYCSL will be introducing the new NYCSL Final Four Championship which will be open to the winners and runners-up in the NYCSL METRO LEAGUE, NYCSL PL Division 1 and the newly formed CCSL PL Division 1. Semifinals will take place on June 9, 2018 with the winners advancing to the finals on June 10, 2018.
In the Fall of 2018, the 2008,2007,2006 & 2005 age groups will begin playing their 2018/19 annual season, consisting of 16-18 matches. Divisional winners will join the FINAL FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP
and have the opportunity to progress into US Club Soccer regional and national competitions.
Currently the BOYS divisions are divided into NORTH & SOUTH brackets. Each team plays a HOME/AWAY series with all teams in their bracket & plays each team in the other bracket one time. This minimizes the travel commitment for all clubs.
Currently the GIRLS METRO League consists of one division.
The older age groups (2004,2003 & 2002) matches will begin in the Spring 2019. Those winners will also play in the FINAL FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP
