Lincoln, NE, January 24, 2024 - The Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL) is one of the top club soccer leagues in the country, showcasing women at the pinnacle of the club and collegiate market. The WPSL and Hudl are thrilled to be entering into a partnership that is committed to providing its member athletes with the best opportunity to take their talent to the next level, a shared mission of both organizations.

In this exciting new partnership, the Women’s Premier Soccer League and Hudl have agreed to launch a league video exchange platform for all club teams.
