With the arrival of warmer weather talk of the outdoor season in Minnesota is heating up. The state soccer scene is much more than Minnesota United FC (NASL), Minnesota United Reserves and Minnesota TwinStars FC (NPSL). USASA and Minnesota Soccer Association sanction several leagues in the state, including MASL and MRSL in the Twin Cities. This summer will see the debut of a new league: the American Premier League.
The five-team APL hopes to bring more attention to the adult soccer scene in the Upper Midwest and clubs from around the region have taken notice. A league-wide player combine is scheduled for April 11 at the Hopkins Pavilion and all players are welcome to attend. There is no fee, but a deadline to register is set for March 28. APL will kick off their inaugural season in June.
