Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) Boys has launched the Heartland Conference which will begin in the 2021-2022 season. In conjunction with the launch of the ECNL Boys Heartland Conference, the league is thrilled to announce the creation of the Heartland Conference in the ECNL Regional League, including the following clubs: KC Athletics, KC Fusion, Lou Fusz Athletic, Puma FC, Sporting Blue Valley, Sporting Springfield and Sporting St. Louis. These clubs have committed to making the ECNL Regional League – Heartland the top competition platform for their top teams at all age groups. The addition of seven new clubs and a new conference will add to the league’s competition and talent pool, while also continuing to fulfill the ECNL’s mission to Raise the Game across the country. Since its inception, the ECNL has supported the nation’s top clubs as they develop the next generation of college and professional stars.
“It’s extremely exciting to announce the formation of the Heartland Conference for the ECNL Boys Regional League,” said ECNL Boys Commissioner Jason Kutney. “By forming a Regional League conference to complement the formation of the new Heartland Conference at the club level, we continue to build a great soccer foundation in the center of the country. Consisting of top teams from these clubs, the Regional League – Heartland will be a true proving ground offering potential advancement opportunities to the ECNL Club Competition based upon performance. Welcoming these clubs into the ECNL marks an important step forward, elevating the competitive level of the league and providing the best resources to more players.”
Puma FC was founded by Rob Million and Vladimir Roganovic in 2010. Since its founding, the values associated with the club have remained the same as today: family, friends, competition, and community. Due to the strong foundation of family values, Puma FC has grown every year since its inception. The club will reach more than 1,500 athletes with teams playing in both recreation and against premier league teams from many different parts of the Kansas City Metro area and surrounding communities.
