GCPL Statement on Promotion and Relegation in the USSF

On August 3, 2017, Kingston Stockade FC of the National Premier Soccer League (co-division 4) and The Miami FC of the North American Soccer League (co-division 2) filed a claim with the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) to make the US Soccer Federation comply with the FIFA stated mandate to use promotion and relegation for all divisions of US Soccer.

The Gulf Coast Premier League (GCPL) believes that the implementation of promotion and relegation would allow teams to find the appropriate level in which to compete, champion the sport in smaller communities, stimulate the fan base, and increase spending on smaller regional and amateur leagues throughout the United States. The GCPL is supportive of any move that could bring about promotion and relegation in the United States of America.
