Premier Development League

The top U23 men's amateur league in North America lives in the USL League Two, the developmental ground for elite players. The regular season will consist of 14 regular season matches, 7 home and 7 away. The schedule is augmented by participation in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup and various exhibitions. Players have the ability to compete throughout the summer months maintaining the collegiate eligibility.



The league is the proving ground for players that aspire to reach the highest levels of the game. In the past six years combined, 70% of all MLS draftees played in the PDL.

The first stage of this will be our tryouts and getting our rosters set.  If you have what it takes to compete at a high level, then sign-up and we will see you on the pitch. If you have any questions please contact Mo Sheta at
