The Syracuse Pulse celebrates inaugural season in 2022

Together we beat as one! The Syracuse Pulse are energizing the 315, bringing professional soccer back to a community that is blessed with top sports teams and loyal fans.

The Syracuse Pulse Mens Pro team plays in the third tier of professional soccer in the National Independent Soccer Association (NISA). The club celebrates its inaugural season in spring 2022.

The Syracuse Pulse strive to give players a unique pathway to the pros, while reflecting diversity and inclusiveness and setting a standard of excellence for professional soccer organizations.

The Syracuse Pulse are excited to bring a professional soccer team back to Central New York, which has not had an outdoor professional team since 2004. 

Syracuse has a proud history as a prominent soccer community. Beginning in the early 1970s, semi-pro soccer leagues in Syracuse flourished with a World Cup atmosphere amongst ethnic teams. Thousands of people would cheer on their teams with a passion and energy that captured the imagination of our youth. Kids fell in love with the game and their favorite teams and players. Some of these kids grew up to become coaches, administrators, and professional soccer players. 

The Syracuse Pulse Womens Semi-Pro team is a member of United Women’s Soccer, (UWS) a national pro-am league, and will launch its inaugural season in May 2022.



The National Independent Soccer Association was founded in 2017 with a mission to bring professional soccer to every city in the United States.
