Alberta Major Soccer League


Alberta Major Soccer League

The Alberta Major Soccer League (AMSL) is the highest level of amateur soccer in Alberta. Team champions of the league go on to compete in the national senior men's and women's championships.

Overview

Founded in 1991, the AMSL consists of two divisions, the Men's Division of ten teams and the Women's Division of eight (the Women's Division was added in 1992). Every year since the league's founding, the champions of the league have gone on to compete for the Challenge Cup (men) and the Jubilee Shield (women).

The AMSL is operated by the Alberta Soccer Association, the provincial governing body for soccer in Alberta. This has been at times a problematic arrangement, but it has stood up for the time that the league has been in existence. The various district associations in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Red Deer fulfill some of the administrative functions that would normally be handled by such a league, and this has led to rules that apply differently to teams in the same league.
