After some time away from competition, we're excited to announce that we have joined the Metroplex Premier League for the upcoming Fall season!
With lower league soccer blowing up in the DFW and around Texas, we had a few options for which league to come back in to however, we had to consider what the club could realistically handle to provide players the right atmosphere to excel. Two seasons in the UPSL's 1st div. taught us a lot and it became clear that we needed more time to build into a club worthy of competing at that level.
We feel the Metroplex Premier League is the right league for FC Denton to restart in because of the ease of entry, convenient travel, ownership support but, most of all, their vision to build a league that serves as a ladder or springboard for their clubs, players and coaches, which is the core of our philosophy and something we want to be a part of. We will also have the chance to compete for US Open Cup qualifying as well as the USSSA's National Champions League, in addition to competing with some of the best clubs in the DFW. Competition begins August 2020.
We'd like to thank the MPL front office for their constant communication, support and for the warm welcome!
We look forward to meeting all the teams in the MPL soon!!
