MLS NEXT2 • NATIONAL ACADEMY LEAGUE
HVS is excited to announce that HVS teams that previously played in the NPL will now be playing in NEXT2! This new league will include the same elite clubs that currently play in MLS NEXT. NEXT2 will follow the same format and same rules as MLS NEXT. NEXT2 will be operated by the National Academy League. One major difference in MLSNEXT and NEXT2 is that the NEXT2 season will run from September through December, allowing NEXT2 players the opportunity to play high school. The NEXT2 fall season will culminate with a National Showcase in Florida to end the fall season.
