We were founded in 2016 and are registered in Tyngsboro.
GL NPSL is an amateur menís team that competes in the National Premier Soccer League. NPSL is very structured and prestigious. There are over 90 teams in the United States, but only two in Massachusetts. Boston City FC covers Boston and beyond and Greater Lowell covers cities and towns in, around, and beyond those communities.
The NPSL Board of Directors is elected into office by all its members. Teams have access to player registration software. In addition, we are assisted with international clearance for players who were born overseas or have played abroad. The NPSL is extremely competitive and organizes annual playoffs and championship games. Our teams play in regional conferences which keep travel expenses manageable.
GLNPSL FC is in the Atlantic Conference, which is the most competitive. Three of the last four National Champions were from our North Atlantic Conference:
2014 - New York Red Bulls
2015 - New York Cosmos
2017 - Elm City Express
Greater Lowell participates in a national showcase. In 2017 we entered four players. Three of our 2017 players signed professional contracts in France, Greece, and with the U. S Philadelphia Fury. This past January 2018, one more player was chosen and he too has moved up to play for an expansion team.
Many NPSL players attend colleges across the nation. We also have some high school students who want to play in college. Our players can maintain their college eligibility as we are an amateur team.
In 2017, our games were in Tyngsboro. For 2018, home games will be in Chelmsford at the George Simonian Stadium, 200 Richardson Road, North Chelmsford, MA 01863. Route 3 at Exit 32.
MISSION: GLNPSL FC aims to provide visibility and exposure for those who want to play in college and at the professional level.
