     Plans for a new third division professional soccer league in America have quietly come to fruition as the nation’s top tier competitions enter their final stretches. The National Independent Soccer Association (NISA) was provisionally sanctioned by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) on February 16th, 2019 and is set to kick off its inaugural season on Saturday, August 31st.


     NISA’s regular season is divided into two halves, fall and spring, followed by playoffs. Competing in the 2019 fall season, officially called the “NISA Showcase,” will be the following eight teams:


East Coast


West Coast


The Champions of the East and West Coast conferences will earn berths into the 2020 playoffs.

     Following the conclusion of the NISA Showcase, the 2020 spring season is set to take place with additional member clubs, namely, Chattanooga FC and Detroit City FC, two teams originally set to play in the failed NPSL Founders Cup. Also, teams in Baton Rouge, Connecticut, and Providence are expected to participate in the spring, as per the league’s official website. The competition format and playoff qualification methods for the spring have yet to be released.
