The Ohio Valley Premier League (OVPL) has received sanctioning from US Club Soccer. A first of its kind in the region, the OVPL will seek to provide a competitive league for players of all ages, beginning with a competitive amateur men’s division.

As a league, the OVPL will operate within Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio to help local communities grow the beautiful game through competitive matches and local soccer culture. The amateur men’s division allows for players as young as sixteen (16) years old to compete in a structure that provides an opportunity for competition in the country’s longest-running tournament in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. Due to the structure of the OVPL, no players will jeopardize amateur status within their youth clubs, high schools, or universities.

With the sanctioning of the OVPL through US Club Soccer, the regionalized league is a first of its kind for the Ohio Valley area.

Could be exciting for other areas around Cincinnati and NKY to get involved.

The Cincinnati Dutch Lions will continue to play in the nation's top amateur league, USL League Two. The OVPL team will consist of local talent aiming to pursue higher level playing opportunities. As the only U23 league in the region, it is the only way for players as young as 16 to play in a highly competitive environment to push them into development while playing against older players.
