Soccer Bowl 2013 was contested by the winners of the spring and fall seasons. The game was hosted by the winner of the spring season.[8][9][10]


USL Pro[edit]

For the first time, all USL Pro teams will play every other team in a home-and-away arrangement, like most European leagues. The only exception will be Antigua Barracuda FC, which will play all their matches on the road, giving every other team 13 home matches against other USL Pro teams.

On January 23, 2013, USL Pro announced an alliance with Major League Soccer. For the 2013 season, four MLS teams will affiliate with USL Pro teams in lieu of participating in the MLS Reserve League system. These MLS clubs will loan at least four of their reserve players to their USL Pro affiliate club for development purposes.

All USL Pro teams will play two matches each with the remaining MLS Reserve League teams. Those matches will count toward USL Pro standings, giving each team a total of 26 games.[11]

The following teams will affiliate:

USL Pro teams will play MLS Reserve teams as listed below. Except for Antigua Barracuda FC (who will play two MLS reserve teams on the road), each set will be a home-and-away arrangement.

The USL Pro season will begin on March 23, 2013. The first matches with MLS Reserve League teams will take place on April 7, 2013.
