SoCal Premier became the West Coast affiliate of NISA on April 2, 2021.

More to come as we build out the structure of Adult Amateur and Pro pyramid through Promotion/Relegation that you will NOT find in any other national amateur league in the United States! USL, NPSL, UPSL do not have the structure or opportunities that we can offer!

SoCal Premier has been running a Pro/Rel system since the early 1980's when we had two small divisions of 9 teams each.

Now we offer 4 levels of Pro/Rel

  1. NISA Nation
  2. Premier
  3. 2nd
  4. 3rd

Promotion/Relegation happens every season. Our leagues run just about the same as European leagues with a league table, home/away fixtures, league cup, no playoffs.

New teams come in at the bottom and have to work their way up. We have watched it happen many times before! It is an amazing experience for our teams!
