Liverpool NPL teams travelled to Arkansas this past weekend to compete in the first round of 2017-2018 National Premier League games. Arkansas Sporting and the Arkansas Comets hosted the weekend of matches kicked off the season in Fayetteville. Liverpool teams showed good spirit and brought back a winning record of 7 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses between our nine Liverpool teams. The teams enjoyed team dinners and events between games making for a great experience. Four of the nine teams went undefeated this weekend and we look forward to hosting the Arkansas teams in October here in the DFW Area.
Liverpool FC IA Texas is one of the inaugural clubs invited to join NPL and represent Texas in both regional and national competitions. Last year, six Liverpool teams qualified for Regionals and four for Nationals to compete against the best teams in the nation. NPL players are seen, evaluated and recruited by collegiate coaches who attend NPL events and travel across the state and region for added visibility with regional colleges and universities. NPL along with the ECNL (Elite Clubs National League) platform provide great opportunities for Liverpool players to play and compete in elite competitions throughout the year.
