  • The Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) is a national women's soccer league in the United States and Puerto Rico, and is on the 2nd level of women's soccer in the United States soccer pyramid, below National Women's Soccer League (NWSL). There are both professional/senior teams and amateur teams in the WPSL. An organization has to choose to be one or the other due to NCAA regulations, since collegiate players cannot play on pro teams. The WPSL started as the Western Division of the W-League, before breaking away to form its own league in 1997. The league is sanctioned by the United States Adult Soccer Association as an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). The WPSL is unique in that it is one of the few women's leagues to spawn a men's league, rather than the other way around: the Men's Premier Soccer League, later the National Premier Soccer League, was created as an offshoot of the WPSL in 2003. According to the official WPSL website, the WPSL is the largest (in terms of number of teams) women's soccer league in the world. When WPS suspended play for the 2012, WPSL moved forward with its ambitions toward professionalism and created the WPSL Elite League. Officially, the Elite League was a pro-am league, though the vast majority of team (including three former WPS teams) were fully professional. At the same time, an U-20 league was also created, further expanding the WPSL structure. Teams in the U-20 will mostly be associated with existing WPSL teams, but some will be stand-alone organizations. (en)
  • La Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) es una liga de fútbol femenino en Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico. Dentro de la pirámide estadounidense del fútbol, la WPSL corresponde al tercer nivel en la categoría femenina, inferior a la W-League y a la Women's Professional Soccer. Los orígenes de la WPSL se remontan a los orígenes de la W-League: en la intertemporada 1996-1997, varios equipos del oeste de Estados Unidos se fueron de la W-League y fundan la WSPL. Estos equipos femeninos estaban descontentos con decisiones de la W-League de esta época. (es)
  • La Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) est une ligue de soccer féminin, au 2e niveau de la pyramide américaine, aux côtés de la Women's League Soccer en Amérique du Nord. La WPSL regroupe 75 équipes réparties dans 6 conférences géographiques. La majorité des équipes ont un statut non-professionnel. Neuf clubs sont cependant professionnels et toutes autres équipes sont amateures en raison des règlements de la NCAA américaine, puisque les joueuses universitaires et collégiales ne peuvent pas jouer chez les «pro» et être rémunérés. En 2012, après la disparition de la Women's Professional Soccer, la Women's Premier Soccer League crée une nouvelle ligue, la WPSL Elite League . Cette dernière est considérée comme le plus haut niveau de la pyramide du soccer féminin nord-américain, aux côtés de la W-League. (fr)
