About ECNL

The Benefits of the ECNL Format

A panel of MVLA coaches and technical directors discuss the benefits of the ECNL format along with highlighting MVLA’s selection as an inaugural member of the first ECNL Boys Northern Cal Conference.



The Boys Elite Clubs National League was founded to improve the daily environment for boys youth soccer players through a collaborative club-based development program featuring competition, player identification, and coaching and club development platforms. The Boys ECNL will include both regular season conference games and cross-conference events, and qualifying teams from the Boys ECNL will advance to the post-season Elite National Premier League (ENPL) Playoffs.


The ECNL is an independent, non-profit, member-based 501(c)(3) organization, with an independent governance and leadership structure. The ECNL Board of Directors and staff solely governs all programs and platforms. The ECNL is sanctioned by US Club Soccer.

MISSION: To “Raise the Game” by elevating standards and experience in all aspects of female youth soccer.




MVLA’s affiliation with ECNL provides for excellent training, strong competition and a high level of exposure to collegiate, national team and other scouts.
