SACRAMENTO, CA – Two new Dallas teams will make debuts in the Women’s Premier Soccer League in the upcoming 2011 season. Dallas Premier, which hosted the WPSL Championship Final Four last season, has bowed out of the league for the upcoming season, but fans and potential players in the league will be able to cheer on the American Eagles S.C. and F.C. Dallas, as well as the returning Fort Worth Panthers.

The alignment and tentative schedule for the Summer 2011 season in the Big Sky Conference of the Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) has been announced and both Dallas teams begin with a Derby match against each other May 15 at the University of Dallas, in Irving.

The Big Sky Conference will feature 12 teams in a two-division format (North & South) with the division winners facing off for the right to compete in the 2011 WPSL National Championship. Last summer, South champion Oklahoma Alliance F.C. defeated the North champion Phoenix Del Sol by a convincing 3-0 margin in Edmond, OK to secure their first-ever WPSL Championship appearance.

For Oklahoma, there will be something old & something new in the South as they look to capture their third division title. There will be three new sports franchises this season as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area welcomes new teams in American Eagles S.C. and F.C. Dallas, while the Arkansas Comets (based out of Fayetteville, AR) will be the first-ever WPSL team to call "The Natural State" home. The North Division will consist of the same five teams who took the pitch last summer.

Opening weekend of the Summer 2011 season in the Big Sky Conference will kick-off on Saturday, May 14th as OAFC travel to Houston to take on South Select, while on the next day, F.C. Dallas makes the short road trip to University of Dallas-Irving to face off with American Eagles S.C.

The North Division will kick-off action the next weekend, as Salt Lake City Sparta take on in-state rival Utah Starzz on Saturday, May 21st at the Lakeside Complex in Orem, UT.
