Would you be interested in sponsoring our great league? Or know someone who might? We NEED YOU!

MESL is asking for your support of our league with your sponsorship of our 2021 soccer season. Donations to MESL help ensure that each and every child in our community, who wants to play soccer, can play soccer - in a safe, clean, and fun environment. We’ve created many “package deals” so that we can offer better opportunities for you and your business to be NOTICED and to become part of our community. As you know, one of the most important forms of advertising is word-of-mouth and word-of-mouth spreads fast as a sponsor of our league!

With over 400 players, Manchester East Soccer League provides intra-league competition for ages 4 to 18, inter-league competition for ages 12 to 18, and a whole lot of fun in the process! Padden Field at Stevens Pond Park also is home to the Central High School Girls soccer team and Manchester Girls Softball League.

RE: Membership Update

I hope this message finds you well and you are able to find solace with family and friends. Our gratitude goes out to you all for your cooperation and understanding during these uncertain and trying times. Only by working together, following the guidelines set by local, state and national leaders, can we stop the spread and give our essential workers the rest they deserve and our players, coaches, fans, and referees the game they are longing for. Please know, as it relates to the game of soccer, the executive board and staff at New Hampshire Soccer has been, and will continue to, monitor and evaluate the situation on a constant basis.

At a board meeting on Monday, April 13, a vote was held and a decision made to further suspend all affiliated and sanctioned soccer activities statewide through May 31, 2020 due to the evolving COVID-19 situation. For our member organizations (towns, clubs and leagues) this includes, but is not limited to: all games, practices, clinics, training, tournaments, and in-person meetings. It is imperative that we all follow recommendations and mandates from the CDC, local and federal officials, USYS and US Soccer to help stop the spread the Corona Virus. New Hampshire Soccer will evaluate conditions on a continuing basis to determine when it is appropriate to reinstate our affiliated and sanctioned soccer activities. Further communications will be provided via email and on our website.

We realize this impacts many programs throughout the state. We continue to update our contingency plans as it relates to The New Hampshire Soccer League, The ODP program, our coaching education courses, referee recertification and grassroots courses, and all other programs and events scheduled. We know there are a lot of questions, we are working through the problems as they arise and trying to adjust and make the best of a situation that is constantly changing.
