About MUSL

The Michigan United Soccer League has been in continuous operation since 1979. We started as a small “Over 30” league of 5 teams, comprised mainly of youth soccer coaches. Since then, we’ve grown to become the largest adult league in Michigan and one of the largest in the U.S. Last year (2012), we had 2000 players on 110 teams in 6 counties across the Metro Detroit area.

We are unique in that you can play from post-high school to post-retirement age, and play in as many different age groups for which you age-qualify. We have an Open age group, and Over 30, Over 40, Over 48 and Over 55 age groups. If you are 55, you could (hypothetically) play in all 5 age groups!

We typically play about 14 regular season games from April through October. Each team is also guaranteed at least one game in our tournament, the MUSL Founders Cup. Cup Games are held throughout the season, culminating with our signature event: the MUSL Founders Cup Finals & Picnic in early August, open to all our members and their families.

Because we are so large, we’ve automated many of the processes necessary to running a soccer league. We have an on-line registration system, a website that is state-of-the-art, and an automated communication system (via e-mail and/or text messaging) that alerts managers and players to game changes.

In short, we expect the MUSL to continue growing and evolving, getting bigger and better every year.
