Professional Soccer is coming to Northwest Arkansas
Our vision for USL Arkansas is to build a club hand-in-hand with the community that inspires, unites, and creates an enduring positive impact to our region by bringing people together through the “Beautiful Game”, making Northwest Arkansas an even greater place to live, work, and play.
USL Arkansas and its supporters will be creating a Men’s professional team and a Women’s professional team. The Men’s team will play in the USL Championship – the only sanctioned second division under the U.S. Soccer Federation. The Women’s team will be playing in the new USL Super League, a new league that meets USSF division one standards that will launch in 2024.
The United Soccer League (USL) is the largest and fastest-growing professional soccer organization in North America, possessing more than a decade of experience in bringing the world’s game to communities across the United States and Canada. The USL is built on a proven and recognized model in international football and counts more than 200 clubs in its membership.
