Merger of UEC and CSAC
« on: December 29, 2022, 12:00:58 pm »
I didn't see this posted anywhere in the soccer boards and because it crosses over regions, I thought it made sense to start a new topic:

Looks like the merger of the United East Conference and the Colonial States Athletic Conference will be for all sports in Fall 2023.

Both conferences have 8 schools in men's soccer:  UEC (St, Mary's (MD), Penn State Harrisburg, Lancaster Bible, Penn State Abbington, Penn College, Morrisville State, Gaullaudet, Wells) and CSAC (Rosemont, Cairn, Keystone, Saint Elizabeth, Clark's Summit, Wilson, Bryn Athyn, and Valley Forge).

16 schools would be a pretty big conference and it would reduce automatic bids by one for these teams in men's soccer, but Wells and Morrisville State have already announced they are leaving the UEC and I'm sure they are already worried about more conference realignment and even schools dropping sports or going out of existence.
