MESA, Ariz. (January 26, 2022) – The Women’s Premier Soccer League announced today, Arizona Arsenal Soccer Club has joined the league for the 2022 season. With the announcement, Arizona Arsenal becomes the league’s fourth Arizona-based member.

We are extremely excited to have received an expansion bid to compete in the upcoming WPSL season,” David Belfort, Arizona Arsenal Soccer Club technical director, said. “We are excited to be able to offer this level of competition to our alumni and other aspiring players in the area.”

Powered by Legacy Sports USA, Arizona Arsenal Soccer Club was formed 30 years ago as Gilbert Arsenal Soccer Club. Since its inception in 1992, the club has grown to over 75 boys and girls teams competing at the national, regional and state levels as members of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL).

Arizona Arsenal Soccer Club holds its ability to provide opportunities for developing, placing and preparing student-athletes to compete at the collegiate level as its highest priority.  Committed to this mission, the club has created college liaison positions, scholarship support and education on the collegiate recruiting process.

We want to be able to offer our alumnae that are playing collegiately, or trying to move up to the professional ranks, a platform to compete and develop in,” Belfort said.
