Florida Elite Tallahassee Joining ECNL Regional League in 2023-24

TALLAHASSEE, FL ­– Florida Elite Tallahassee is the first club from the Florida Panhandle to join the ECNL Regional League (ECNL RL). The league made the announcement today and attributes Florida Elite Tallahassee’s success in the National Premier League as a primary reason for selecting the Tallahassee-based club as its newest member.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for players in our area of the state to compete in one of the nation’s best soccer leagues,” says Lee Blenman, Florida Elite Tallahassee’s Director of Coaching. “Our advancement to the ECNL RL is a recognition of our players’ drive to be the best and our coaches’ commitment to helping them reach their goals. Now is the time to take our game to the next level.”

Florida Elite Tallahassee’s boys teams, from U13 to U19, will begin play in the ECNL RL at the start of the 2023-24 season in August. These teams have dominated the National Premier League (NPL) for the last two seasons in Florida, highlighted by a championship won by Florida Elite Tallahassee’s 2009 Elite Boys team last July at the NPL East Playoffs in North Carolina.

“Our Tallahassee teams can go head-to-head with any team in Florida,” says Sean Bubb, Florida Elite Soccer Academy’s Executive Director. “Playing in the ECNL RL will give them a chance to show their excellence in a league that’s closely watched by college scouts while providing more opportunities than ever to get national recognition.”

“Our boys earned their spot in the ECNL RL and our girls are ready to do the same,” added Blenman. “We are completely focused on pushing our girls program forward and are heavily invested in making that happen. Their pathway starts in the fall as part of the NPL.”


ECNL Boys Regional Leagues are operated and managed so as to ensure a consistent environment and level of professionalism across all leagues, facilitating more club connectivity between levels of play and providing a path for more players within each Member Club to reach their fullest potential. Each league allows for coordination and collaboration between the teams of different levels within ECNL clubs, or opportunity for teams and players in other clubs to develop through regular high-level competition.

The ECNL Boys Regional Leagues will offer a pathway to the ECNL Boys Regional League Finals, held in conjunction with the ECNL Boys Playoffs.
