Arkansas-based club joins the Central Conference

Metuchen, NJ – Expansion has come to the Central Conference of United Women’s Soccer (UWS) as Arkansas Wolves will join the fray for the upcoming 2022 campaign. Last season, the Wolves played a provisional schedule in UWS League Two (UWS2). They are the first club in the state to join UWS and are set to compete at the national pro-am level.

“We are excited to welcome our first expansion team from Arkansas into League One,” said Commissioner Joe Ferrara. “The region has excellent players and the Arkansas Wolves are providing them with the opportunity to compete in a national league.”

Founded in 2018, the Arkansas Wolves are based in Benton, Arkansas. Arkansas Wolves aim to contribute to the growth of soccer in Arkansas by providing affordable and high-level opportunities to play and train. The club also aims to develop the next generation of leaders through physical training, mentorship, and mental development. The club’s UWS team will include players from all over Arkansas, as well as international players. The assigned coaching staff includes head coach Thabo Masoga and assistant coach Steven Laster.

In addition to the women’s team, the club fields a men’s first team in the National Premier Soccer League and a men’s second team in the UPSL. Arkansas Wolves also maintain a Players Development Academy, intending to model the developmental paths of successful clubs around the world.

“We could not be more proud of our players! We knew when we embarked upon this journey that it was going to blow up, and they have performed well above our expectations,” said Club President/Owner Sean Paul Jones. “I am honored to join the UWS, and provide talented players from all over the opportunity to showcase their gifts, hard work, and determination on the big stage. We are really excited to bring this level of competition to Arkansas.”
