I hope boys ecnl thrives. If picking between the two, I'd pick EM just for stability. Seems like Albertson will be using random fields. Other than that, only time will tell.

Agreed on the eCNL big events. However, keep in mind most college recruiting is done regionally and not nationally

Boys recruiting exposure will be way less than girls ECNL due to the existence of a first division (DAP) and overall less scholarships. Good to have options and boys Ecnl will take some players away from DAP

Not saying I wouldn't do it, but not saying I'm not bonkers either ��
But a MA or VA team only has to do that once - one round home, one round away. The boys regions re bigger but that may change if it grows. This area is lucky to be more in the middle.

If they can do what they've done on the girls' side I think it will take a bite out of DA.

There are 15 teams in NE Conference. See link for teams that are spread from MA to VA. Typically two games a weekend. I think home and away but not sure on that. They try to schedule games based on geography. For example play to PA teams in same weekend.
