NPSL is Fastest Growing National Sports League! The NPSL is the fastest growing national sports league in the United States with over 80 teams playing all over the country.  The NPSL is the 4th Division in the U.S. Soccer professional soccer pyramid and is considered to be the foundation for the development of players in the United States.  Some Major League Soccer (1st Division) and North American Soccer League (2nd Division) teams participate in the NPSL for the purpose of developing players.  With the world’s most popular sporting event, the FIFA World Cup, taking place in Brazil in 2014, it’s the perfect time to launch a soccer team in a great market like Fort Worth.  

Fort Worth Soccer will develop local players!  Fort Worth Soccer Group is committed to provide opportunity to Fort Worth area players to play at a high level in a national league; it will also help develop local players while providing them a platform to play in NASL or MLS or internationally with a professional club.  The team will announce the Head Coach & Technical Director soon.  Information about Official Team Tryouts will be released next week.  

Home Sweet Home!  As part of the commitment to the community, Fort Worth Soccer Group has a vision to build a soccer specific stadium in Fort Worth.  For the 2014 NPSL season, Fort Worth Soccer team will play at historic LaGrave Field which provides a professional stadium in the heart of Fort Worth, including beer gardens, VIP Field Side Seating, Dug Out Suites and seating for 5,000 fans.  More information will be shared in the coming months for the vision of Fort Worth professional soccer!
