[MIDWEST REGIONAL LEAGUE] The U.S. Youth Soccer Midwest Regional League will operate a division for teams from the youth clubs of the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew and their affiliate premier youth soccer clubs in the Midwest. The Pro Youth Clubs Affiliates Division will operate both girls and boys divisions from under-12 through under-18. In addition to league play within the division, teams will also take part in showcase events during the Fall and Spring

The Pro division will be operated under the umbrella of the MRL but will be conducted outside of the current three-tier structure of the league. Only MLS youth clubs and their affiliates are eligible to compete in this new division.

“We are excited to have the Chicago Fire youth academy, Columbus Crew Youth teams and their affiliated youth clubs compete in a unique competition platform in assisting the clubs in their goal of developing players,” said US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional League Commissioner Paul Luchowski. “This initiative allows these two MLS youth clubs and their affiliates to compete in a structured competition that is a supplement to their existing MRL competition.”

2013-2014 Pro Youth Clubs Affiliates Division:
Columbus Crew Youth teams
Grand Rapids Crew Juniors
Challenger (Cleveland) Crew Juniors
Chicago Fire Academy
Chicago Fire Juniors United
Carmel/Indiana Fire Academy
Michigan Fire Juniors
Kentucky Fire Juniors
New Wisconsin player development entity associated with the Fire.
