Little Rock Rangers Soccer Club expanded to include women’s side in 2017
The year-old Little Rock Rangers team, which closed their first season in 2016 with four straight victories to end 5-6-1, announced mid-2016 that it would be joining the Women’s Premier Soccer League for the 2017 season. The Rangers, a National Premier Soccer League team, had been looking to meet the demand for more soccer in the state and to answer the common fan question of when a women’s team could be expected. Jennifer Pfeiffer, the director of coaching at the Arkansas State Soccer Association who served as goalkeeper coach for the NPSL team in 2016, will be the head coach of the WPSL team. The Rangers will continue to play at Little Rock’s historic War Memorial Stadium located in midtown Little Rock.
