CHICAGO (December 15, 2023) – NISA Nation today affirmed its mission to create a nationwide pathway-to-professional league with the re-activation of the Southwest Region.

Six clubs have signed agreements to play a Spring Season beginning in March, with more clubs signing on daily. The Southwest Division will feature as many as 12 clubs in the Spring Season.

We’re actively seeking clubs that want to accelerate that process.”

NISA Nation, a full-year league providing independent clubs a groundbreaking pathway to professional status, launched in 2021 with regions from coast to coast.
