The American Soccer League (ASL) is an American soccer league that began play in August 2014.[1] The league footprint is in the northeastern United States. ASL players are paid, making it different from the NPSL or PDL models in which college-eligible players can compete.

American Professional Soccer (APS) is the parent company of American Soccer League (ASL). The league's goal is to eventually achieve U.S. Soccer Division 3 status. Initially, the league will be sanctioned by the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA).[2]


Initially the league played a traditional FIFA calendar schedule. After the first season ASL switched formats to a Spring-Fall schedule. The 2016 ASL spring season will run from April to June. After a short break, the fall season will begin in late August and run until early November.
