DES MOINES MENACE’S MATTHEW HOMONOFF ON GROWING THE GAME IN IOWA
For over 20 years, Des Moines Menace Soccer Club has been a pioneer in the region for the growth of soccer. Originally fielding a PDL team, the organization has expanded into a full development club that includes youth programs as well as investment into the women’s soccer.
The Des Moines Menace women’s side will again suit up for an exciting season in the WPSL as kickoff approaches next month.
The Menace launched its WPSL program in 2012, introducing a new opportunity in the region for women to continue their playing career.
In addition to the club’s WPSL squad, Menace SC also fields a Premier Development League (PDL) team that played its inaugural season back in 1994. The PDL squad has claimed accolades over the years with 14 PDL Playoffs appearances and three berths to the final four. The Menace won the 2005 PDL Championship and earned a pair of PDL regular-season titles in 2002 and 2014.
