I'm not exactly sure what to make of this, but for the first time I have come across national
rankings for teams in the USL Premier Development League and National Premier Soccer League.
The July 1 rankings are from U.S. Soccer Report, a Twitter account that launched June 30. I sent

USSF series recap - Tier 2: NASL - Tier 3: USL-Pro - Tier 4: NPSL and PDL - Tier 5: USASA and USCS
There are a lot of things I could say about MLS here in my fifth and final installment of my USSF
series. That the league was famously unstable in its early years, that spasms of contraction
threatened the base of support, and that the league was probably closer to shuttering at one point
USSF series recap - Tier 3: USL-Pro - Tier 4: NPSL and PDL - Tier 5: USASA and USCS Last time, on
the third tier, we skirted the NASL en route to our breakdown of USL-Pro and its many, many
roadblocks on the road to its ultimate incarnation. The main reason for those trip wires? You
guessed it — the NASL and the defection of its owners.
USSF series recap - Tier 4: NPSL and PDL - Tier 5: USASA and USCS Now that we've cut through the
jungled interior of the USSF pyramid — those cumbersome, overgrown vines of amateur soccer — we
emerge on the other side in the top three layers of the USSF ladder. The following three
installments of our series covers three directly sanctioned professional leagues by the USSF.

Chesterfield, VA (Thursday November 1st, 2012) - The National Premier Soccer League, or NPSL is a USSF Sanctioned league and considered the 4th Division of professional soccer here in the United States.

Seacoast United Mariners striker Eddie Jones scored for the "Jim Dedeus XI" All Stars after the
half hour mark, but it wasn't enough to overtake Oxford United in Monday's 4-1 loss at Portsmouth

A nine-man Mass United FC gave the Rhode Island Reds a run for their money in Saturday's 3-2
CRANSTON, R.I. Despite playing with a two-man advantage, it took a Wilder Arboleda 63rd minute
goal to keep the Reds ahead in Saturday's 3-2 win over Mass United FC at Cranston Stadium.
After a scoreless first half, a nine-man Mass United, who started two players short due to
injuries, broke the scoreless tie when backup keeper-turned-midfielder Baboucarr Njie tallied in
the 50th minute.
Even though the Rhode Island Reds only grabbed a point from two games over the past weekend, it
was good enough to hold onto a share of the third spot (along with Mass United) in the NPSL
Northeast Atlantic Conference.
On Friday, the Reds fell to the John Wolyniec-led Red Bulls by the score of 5-0 at Cranston
Junior Lone Star FC, in their home opener, defeated BuxMont Torch FC 4–1 on Sunday to win
their first game of the 2012 National Premier Soccer League season. Junior Lone Star FC led 3–1
going into the half. Moses Jackson scored the first two goals for the Stars in the 8th and 10th
minute before assisting Fornatee Brapoh with the Stars' third goal in the 37th minute.
The biggest takeaways from the announcement by the United States Soccer Federation is that for the 100th US Open Cup they are making things bigger. There are more teams competing since the modern era started ('95 to present). There is more prize money. There is more randomness to hosting as all hosts will be determined by coin flip.
