New York, NY - Cedar Stars Academy Hudson Valley

Cedar Stars FC is proud to announce their acceptance and participation into the NPSL - National Premier Soccer League for the 2022 season as an expansion team.

Cedar Stars Academy Hudson Valley joins the league as Cedar Stars FC, the newest expansion of the Cedar Stars Academy family. The club, located in Chester, NY within the historic Hudson Valley Region of upstate NY, will begin competition in the East Region in 2022.

Home matches will be played at Faller Field Stadium, home to Middletown High School, in Middletown, NY.  It is a modern stadium that was commissioned in 2014. It is a FIFA-certified venue that seats over 3500 spectators and features a state-of-the-art press box, jumbotron video screen, scoreboard, and locker rooms.


The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) is one of the largest established men’s soccer leagues in the United States with over 90 teams competing across the country. The NPSL is a successor to the Men’s Premier Soccer League (MPSL), which was formed in 2002. The NPSL is a member of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) and is thereby affiliated with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). The NPSL’s cooperative and turnkey ownership platform has led to its explosive growth, countless player development opportunities, and commitment to grow the game in the United States.

"The North Atlantic Conference has been in search of the right team to represent the Hudson Valley, and we have found it in the Cedar Stars. This area is exploding with soccer growth.  The CSA leadership team has tremendous experience developing successful soccer organizations throughout the U.S. and the world.  We expect Cedar Stars FC, the newest CSA entity, to emerge as one of the strongest teams in the region.”
Cindy Spera – NPSL Managing Director

“Cedar Stars brings the perfect blend of an accomplished investor group and well-established youth club to the league and we are excited that they have joined the NPSL. Cedar Stars are already well-known and well-connected to the Hudson Valley community which will undoubtedly offer them tremendous success from the start and the potential to develop into one of the league’s marquee organizations.”

Dina Case – NPSL Director of Membership Development
