Interestingly on slide 2, they say SCCL replaces "regional" leagues, but not NPL Slide 4 - highlights "founding" clubs, so makes one think they want expansion with this league
Slide 5 - item 3 - Decrease Cost, will be interesting to compare registration costs of this and the old leagues.
Slide 5 - item 4 - Improve competition - Club directors will place teams into the right environment based upon level of play NOTE THIS DID NOT SAY BASED UPON LOCATION --- ARE THE CLUBS DISAGREEING ON THIS ITEM?
Slide 9 - mention of a future STATE Cup -- Again this points to the idea of expansion. Watch out Georgia Soccer SCCL is coming for you.......
I was at the SSA town hall, and yes they are selling SCCL as regional, and NPL on par with ECNL (see my post from the SSA town hall thread)- their reasoning is that NPL (South Atlantic) is a qualifying league for the ENPL.
I bet SCCL and NPL are both run out of central, although it could differ based on gender/age. They did not mention location at the town hall, however.
They used travel as an example of decreased cost. For instance, GSA N and GSA S won't play each other in Miami!
We will see what the costs are for NPL and SCCL, when they post them.
