Miami AC USL W League, League Two, and Academy are all officially back!
With the summer right around the corner, the divisions have been aligned for all of our clubs competing this year in the USL, so let’s break down where to catch your favorite Florida based side playing this year!
USL Academy Cup
The third edition of the USL Academy Cup begins on March 30th with the biggest field yet.
Divided regionally and geographically, the teams will compete in their four team groups starting with a round robin format and ending with the top teams in the two groups competing for the crown!
This year we have both a U19 boys and a girls team competing in the USL A division all vying for that coveted top stop and claiming the USL Academy Cup!
Starting with the boys, they will be in the Classic Division in Group A alongside the likes of Morris Elite, Colorado International Soccer Academy and Houston FC. With just one other group of four competing in the division, the boys will like their odds of finishing high!
Moving to the girls side with their U19 grouping being made of three separate divisions of eight times.
The girls will compete in the second division, “Premier Division” alongside One Knoxville SC, Western Mass Pioneers and West Virginia United.
USL Women’s League
65 teams across ten divisions, women’s USL W League play is officially back. The league’s structure has been completely resurrected starting with four regional conferences: Eastern, Western, Southern and Central.
Teams will compete in 10 to 12 divisional matches with our women’s team playing in the Southeast Division.
Alongside Florida Elite Soccer Academy, FC Miami City, Palm City Americanas, Swan City SC and Tampa Bay United SC.
Competing in just their second season in the USL, Miami AC got off to a slow start in league losing their first two, but finished off strong winning their last three matches and finishing third out of five teams in the group.
Miami will be looking to build off of this when league play starts in just a few months! Make sure to catch the teams season opener away at FC Miami City on May 16th at 7pm, Central Broward Regional Park. See full 2023 Schedule HERE
