The NPSL has begun to release schedules for the 2021 season with the Lone Star Conference’s schedules dropping already. The Denton Diablos and Fort Worth Vaqueros return to NPSL play for the first time since 2019, joined by Irving FC who previously played in UPSL. Irving FC also played with Denton and Fort Worth in The Roja League.
This year’s Lone Star Conference comprises 8 teams from around the state of Texas, including 5 returning members from 2019: Denton Diablos, Fort Worth Vaqueros, Midland-Odessa Sockers, Laredo Heat, and Katy 1895 FC. Joining them are Irving FC from the UPSL, and new teams FC Brownsville and Coyotes FC.
Austin United FC, previously announced in 2019, is no longer listed on the NPSL site, nor in the schedule. Dallas City FCD remains listed in the Heartland Conference and their schedule has yet to be announced.
With that out of the way, here are the schedules for the Metroplex’s three NPSL sides for the 2021 season.
