GULF STATES PREMIER LEAGUE
The Gulf States Premier League, which includes U-13 through U-18 boys’ and girls’ age groups for the 2013-14 season, was founded in May 2011 as part of US Club Soccer’s National Premier Leagues (NPL). The league is comprised of 11 clubs from five different states. Participating teams will play each opponent at home or away for a total of nine regular-season games. In addition, teams will take part in a Spring Showcase and a Final Four Weekend. Gulf States Premier League champions, determined by the Final Four Weekend, will compete at the NPL Champions Cup in July 2014.
