PASL Announces First Set of Teams for Relaunched Women's Division
The Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL) today announced the first grouping of teams in its new women’s league. Eight teams have already committed to join in the Great Lakes region. The PASL previously announced a relaunch of its women’s division. The league will be divided into eight regions around the country: Northwest, Southwest, Rocky Mountains, South Central, Midwest, Great Lakes, Northeast and the Southeast. Each region could have multiple divisions within a region depending on how many teams register.
“We wanted to kick off our formal announcement with enough teams to form a division, so everyone knows the league is viable and happening,” states PASL Commissioner Kevin Milliken. “We thought the Great Lakes Region was the place to start, because of the success we had at the PASL Nationals last March in Cincinnati.”
Five women’s teams, the Cincinnati Sirens, Chicago Mustangs, Great Lakes Wanderers, Youngstown Nighthawks, and Brew City Legends, are currently committed to the Great Lakes Region as part of the new PASL Club program, which allows organizations the opportunity to create their own arena soccer club with teams competing in men’s, women’s and youth divisions.
The league has also announced an affiliation with the Chicago Women Premier League, which is headed by Lucy Montano. Through this partnership the Cicero Jaguars, Midwest Panthers, and a to-be-renamed Chicago Women Premier Academy team have already committed to participate in the PASL this season with the potential for additional teams.
“We are very excited to work with the PASL,” said Montano, “and we’re in the process of bringing possibly 6-10 more teams into the league.”
“This is already the biggest representation of women we’ve had in the 20 years of the PASL and this is only the beginning,” said Milliken.
It’s not too late to join the Great Lakes Region, or any of the other seven regions for the 2019-20 season. The registration deadline for the PASL is September 30th, and the league is looking to have at least one division of women in each region. The PASL will kickoff their 2019-20 season the weekend of December 6th.
