CASA Soccer League is the premier adult amateur soccer league in Philadelphia. With men’s leagues, women’s and non-binary leagues, 11v11, 7vs7, co-ed, tournaments and a whole soccer ecosystem of promotion and relegation, CASA truly is soccer for all. Our friends at The Brotherly Game do a great job of recapping all the action from the men’s league each week, and we are down to the last week of the season.

For this week’s PSP local lower league recap, let’s take a break from the normal structure and look at the CASA men’s leagues as they close out their Spring season.
