Erie FC is the newest member of the WPSL, the strongest women’s league available for collegiate and amateur players in the United States. The WPSL operates in 35 U.S. states with an all-time high of 130 teams – continuing as the “Largest Women’s Soccer League in the World.”
The league’s on-field product features many of the top amateur players in the country, with two-thirds of the player pool from the collegiate ranks including the top programs in the country and the Power 5 conferences. For the third year in a row more than 50 percent of the NWSL College Draft selections were products of the WPSL, and 28 league alumni were on 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup rosters, including 12 on the United States’ gold medal winning side.
Erie FC is the culmination of over two decades of work in the game for co-owner Pedro Argaez, who introduced in 2008 the first NPSL franchise in Erie’s history (Erie Admirals), reaching the National final in their inaugural season in 2009.
Erie FC is proud to blend the history and success of the two longest and most successful soccer clubs in Erie, PA (MSA Soccer and Erie Admirals), to provide the region with the highest possible level of women’s soccer for the high school, collegiate, and former professional players from Erie, PA and around the world.
