All six FCW teams qualify for NPL Regionals and have a chance to advance to the NPL National Championships to be held at Grand Park, Indiana
FC Wisconsin, who competes in the National Premier league, will send all six teams to the NPL Regional Playoff in Rockford, IL. FC Wisconsin is the only club in both the NPL East and West Divisions that has had all its teams qualify for post-season play, and will be the only club from Wisconsin represented. The FCW teams that have qualified, in hopes of gaining a birth in the National Championships are, the U13’s, U14’s, U15’s, U16’s, U17’s and U18/19’s.
“We set a goal at the beginning of the year, to have all our teams in the hunt for NPL Regionals. We have hit that goal and more, by not only qualifying all teams for Regionals but also with the majority winning the NPL conference. We are one step closer to taking the club back to a successive boys National Championship Playoff. More hard work is needed but we feel the boys are up for it,” said Co-DOC Billy Solberg.
The NPL Regionals will run June 10-12th at the Sportscore Complex in Rockford Illinois, utilizing their new turf facility.
Many of the top clubs in the Midwest have already qualified including the Chicago Sockers (IL), Vardar (MI), Columbus Crew (OH), St Louis Scott Gallagher (MO), Michigan Wolves (MI), Nationals (MI) and Cincinnati United (OH) to name a few.
“This is a massive accomplishment for the club to send all our teams to the NPL Regionals and a testament to the all the players and coaches that put so much work in on a day to day basis. Setting goals, working toward those goals within our long-term player development curriculum and helping more players reach their goal of college soccer than any other club in the state is what the Club prides itself on. The success of these teams shows the clubs player pool potential and we are excited for these teams to have this opportunity” said Co-DOC Ben Shepherd.
