A 94 team minor league, national soccer organization.
The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) is a member-driven national men’s soccer league committed to the support of its teams on and off the field and growing the sport nationally. The NPSL operates with nearly 100 teams across the country and remains one of the fastest-growing soccer leagues in America.
“Hattiesburg is a fantastic soccer area,” NPSL Managing Director Cindy Spera said. “This is a great opportunity for Southern States SC STARS and for the NPSL. An organization of this quality will contribute enormously to the stability of the region and bring attention to their partner teams and to the league. We are excited at the potential and look forward to seeing their success.”
Home matches for the STARS will be played at The Oakes Training Center in Oak Grove, Mississippi. It is a state-of-the-art facility for training and games that includes a futsal center and an artificial turf field. Completion of the stadium and locker rooms around the newly sprigged Bermuda grass field will be ready for the club’s opening NPSL home game in May.
STARS head coach is Carl Reynolds, “It’s an honor to accept this role, at this club, we always talk about pathways for players and we continue to self-examine and seek further challenges for them and ourselves as coaches. We have high expectations for everyone and look forward to the challenge of meeting them during our inaugural season.”
The NPSL partners with these great companies.

The Under-19 Pilot League Great Success
The NPSL began its first Under-19 program this fall using the Gulf Coast Conference as its pilot league. It was good fortune for the STARS who were able to submit a team along with Pensacola FC, AFC Mobile, the New Orleans Jesters and Port City.
Despite the team being put together quickly and with some haste, coach Carl Reynolds took the youngsters, many our own Academy players, to a 3-1-3 record.
You'll Dig This News
The diggers and earthmovers have been in. Construction is underway preparing the groundwork for a fourth field.
Over the months ahead you will see plenty of work around The Oakes. Construction is well underway on the locker rooms, media and hospitality rooms, player's lounge, medical and fitness areas, offices and bathrooms. All this will be included in the 2-level building that will be adjacent to the futsal building and running the length of the touchline.
