NPSL

The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) is the successor to the Men’s Premier Soccer League (MPSL), which was formed in 2002.   The league started in the West Region with teams from the Northern California area.  In 2005 the league expanded to a national format with the introduction of a Midwest region.  The NPSL expanded further in 2007 by adding a Northeastern region.  In 2011, with the addition of a Southeastern region, the National Premier Soccer League has truly become a nationwide league.  In 2014, NPSL became the largest national soccer league in the US Soccer development pyramid with over 80 teams all over the country.  Over 30 expansion teams joined the NPSL for the 2014 season.  

The NPSL is sanctioned by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the governing body of soccer in the United States. The NPSL operates and is managed as a team-run league. The structure of the league allows each team to have one vote.  Each team is individually owned and operated, and is responsible for maintaining league minimum standards.  New teams seeking membership into the NPSL are subject to approval by existing team owners.

WPSL

The Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) is an independent highly competitive national league whose main focus is on the development of highly competitive premier women's soccer teams. We have over 70 teams participating from all over the United States. 

The WPSL also makes every effort to bring quality soccer to all levels of the community and to promote the stature of female athletes as role models for our youth. Through the years, our league has had many national open and amateur cup victories. 

The WPSL was formed in 1998. It is sanctioned by the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA), who is an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the ruling body of soccer in the United States and FIFA the world's ruling body for soccer.

The WPSL season runs from May 1st to August 1st. There is a league championship tournament that is held the last weekend of July. The location of which is determined each year and is alternated to different parts of the country each year. Teams can expect to play 10-16 games during the season. 

You have a chance to participate in an exciting, growing league whose focus is strictly upon the development and promotion of WOMEN soccer players. We have a foundation of committed and well-regarded teams located throughout the nation. You can make it happen!!

Burg Brigade Supporters Group

The FFC Supporters Group was established 2015 when RVA merged with FASA to rebrand together as Fredericksburg FC. This initiative was started by current American Outlaws and DC United Supporters to bring fan culture and support to the Fredericksburg area. They bring their drums out to the fields and are constantly chanting and singing during the games. It really creates an awesome atmosphere to play in.
