ATLANTA (March 1, 2024) – The Women’s Premier Soccer League welcomes Decatur FC for the 2024 season. With the announcement, the league now boasts four Atlanta-based teams and restores its footprint in the area.

"Decatur FC is delighted to be a part of the WPSL.,” Gareth O’Sullivan, Decatur FC principal, said. “The league has a great reputation, and we look forward to putting a quality product on the field in the summer of 2024."

For O’Sullivan, the city of Decatur is the “perfect location for this new WPSL side” and the club will, in conjunction with the city, continue to use the momentum built off the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to promote the women’s game in the area with the goal of establishing Decatur as a future soccer hub.

Decatur FC will face three other Atlanta-based teams in the Southeast Conference of the league’s South Region as well as teams from Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville, and Birmingham. The nine-team conference will play an eight-game schedule and crown the conference winners from the regular season standings results.

Official tryouts for its inaugural season will be held on March 16 at Decatur High School. Interested players can register now.

The 2024 schedule will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
