Wisconsin Primary Amateur Soccer League and Protagonist Soccer Announce Media Partnership
Protagonist Soccer is pleased to announce that our organization and Wisconsin Primary Amateur Soccer League have entered into a media partnership. The hope of both parties is that this partnership will bring more attention to this new and expanding regional league. This agreement formalizes a joint desire to grow coverage of the league, clubs, and players. By working together, both parties believe that the influence and impact of the WPASL will continue to expand within the region.
As the year comes to an end, Protagonist Soccer has grown in stature as the primary provider of coverage in lower tier soccer media. The goal of the organization has always been to grow the game - across the country, in every city and neighborhood - through superior coverage. While Protagonist Soccer supports and covers national leagues, the staff and site leadership believe that regional soccer leagues are the primary means to sustain the long-term health of the American game. These leagues are the base of the national soccer pyramid and Protagonist believes they should be given the same level of media attention as national and professional leagues. Protagonist Soccer provides an amplifying force to clubs who are too often ignored in this country.
The WPASL was founded in September of 2018 by the owners of Hayward United and Rice Lake City, teams who were looking for a structured amateur league a bit closer to home. The inaugural season, set for 2019, will begin with six teams. These teams are: Barron Soccer Team, Eau Claire Heat FC, Hayward United SC, Inter Wisconsin FC, Rice Lake City FC, and Saint Croix Valley. The goal of the WPASL is to promote and expand soccer in northwest Wisconsin by providing the top amateur players a platform to play together in a high-level amateur league. This will grow the sport of soccer in northwest Wisconsin by giving players more opportunity to further their soccer careers, expanding soccer influence on the youth clubs and cities, and giving young players teams to aspire to play on. While the league is starting from humble beginnings with only six teams, this was done with the aim of growing with intent, ensuring the league would be stable and run smoothly.
Protagonist Soccer looks forward to developing the relationship between our organization and WPASL. Protagonist Soccer aims to give the best coverage possible, finding and telling the stories that make amateur soccer exciting. As with all media partnerships, the goal will always be to grow the game, by highlighting the promise of this developing regional league.
