USASA Introduces Tier 1, the Top Tier of USASA Soccer
United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) is proud to introduce their top national soccer tier, Tier 1.
Tier 1 is considered to be superior in performance, professionalism, minimum standards, financial stability, and sustainability. This is the first designation of its kind within USASA that includes financial expectations as a criteria. Further criteria includes a national footprint and multiple years of status of being a national league.
USASA is also proud to announce that the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) will be the first men’s national league currently designated in Tier 1. The NPSL has been partners with USASA for over 20 years and is the only men’s national league to meet the criteria necessary for this designation.
The Tier 1 designation for the NPSL begins immediately and is contingent on the NPSL remaining a member of the USASA and continuing to meet the criteria. The NPSL had 92 members compete in the 2022 season in its national league, across four regions and 13 conferences.
