About

The Little Rock Rangers were accepted to play in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) in 2015 and in 2016 the Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL). The players will mostly be made up of college aged players, therefore the team is entirely amateur in order to preserve the college players' NCAA eligibility. The Little Rock Rangers Soccer club is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and have a goal of improving soccer in the greater central Arkansas area by bringing in top quality players and coaches. The club has a goal of being able to provide local soccer club scholarships to underprivileged but motivated children in the area. The club plans to do this through extra revenue from ticket sales and donations received.[1]
