Ohio Valley Premier League


New member
New amateur soccer league in the tri-state area. Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC have headlined the league as the inaugural season will start in May 2020. Currently there are 5 member teams. The women's division will join the 12 current men's teams who will compete this summer.


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 and now a women'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 women’s division allows for players as young as sixteen (16) years old to compete in a structure that aids and pushes development with competition in a U23 setting. 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.
