Region 1 Champions League (RCL)
The Eastern Regional League is offered by US Youth Soccer Region I for the teams in the New England and Mid-Atlantic states seeking a higher level of play. The Eastern Regional League replaces the former Region I Champions League to identify itself as the premier league in Region I and more closely align itself with the other three US Youth Soccer Region’s leagues.
The Eastern Regional League accepts and schedules only 16 teams into the Elite Division, unless the league commission determines otherwise. The Premier and Championship Divisions accept and schedule up to 32 teams.
