ARLINGTON, Va. (Feb. 7 2024) – The Women’s Premier Soccer League announced its second Virginia-based expansion for the 2024 season by welcoming Arlington Soccer.

“We could not be more thrilled to be joining the Women’s Premier Soccer League – the longest active women’s soccer league in the country,” Frank DeMarco, Arlington Soccer executive director, said.

“Joining the WPSL will provide our players with the opportunities to not only play at the highest level but also continue to develop and strengthen their skill sets.”


For more than five decades, Arlington Soccer has been committed to providing quality soccer programs and experiences for youth of all abilities, backgrounds and financial means to encourage personal growth, promote a love for the game, and advance soccer in Arlington and surrounding communities.

For the 2024 season, Arlington Soccer will compete against four other teams from Virginia and Washington D.C. in the District Division of the Atlantic Conference. The club has confirmed George Hales as its inaugural head coach and someone DeMarco says they “are grateful to for leading the club into this new chapter.”

Hales joins Arlington Soccer after spending five years with the Washington Spirit of the NWSL where he served in roles from assistant technical director and reserves head coach. Hales holds a USC Premier Diploma, USC Futsal License, USSF A License and a master’s degree in business administration.

The League is set to unveil the official 2024 schedule in March.
