The USL Super League is a new, Division One professional women’s soccer league kicking off in August 2024.
It is built for the future of women’s soccer and aims to be a global leader on and off the field, providing more opportunities for more women in more communities than ever before.
The inaugural season will feature 10-12 teams with additional teams set to join in subsequent seasons.
Unique in American soccer, the USL Super League will play on the “fall-to-summer” soccer calendar traditionally followed around the world, ensuring players are able to represent both club and country and allowing clubs to actively participate in the emerging global women’s transfer market.
The USL Super League will sit at the top the USL’s distinct youth-to-pro women’s pathway. The complete pathway includes the USL W League, the leading pre-professional women’s soccer league in the United States; the USL Academy, an advanced talent-development platform connected to professional and pre-professional USL clubs; and the Super Y League, a premier national youth competition.
