NPL Team Qualification Process

NPL Team Qualifying

  • Teams will retain NPL spots or be relegated based on communicated processes in each division
  • Semi-finalist State Cup (top division):  Teams in the semi-finals would gain automatic acceptance to the NPL should they not already be in.
  • Champion and Runner-Up of Spring State Premier League:  The top two finishers of each age group’s State Premier Championship division gain auto acceptance. For State Premier Championship divisions that are split into regionalized brackets, the winner of each division will gain promotion to the NPL.
  • Pre-NPL Wildcard teams that qualify for the spring Champions League will gain automatic acceptance to the NPL
