League Play

Youth Leagues

Adult Leagues

The Magic Soccer FC adult leagues consist mainly of amateur soccer players in the Bismarck-Mandan area of North Dakota. Leagues, tournaments, and other adult soccer events are regularly offered throughout the year.

Programming exists for players of all backgrounds and ability levels, including both recreational and competitive settings. Divisions are typically organized, under men's, women's, or coed formats. Participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate in adult league programming, unless parental consent is otherwise granted.

Adult Summer League

The adult 7v7  outdoor league plays on Sunday nights at Cottonwood park in Bismarck.

Coed/Recreational and Competitive division settings are typically offered.  True coed rosters are not mandated for the recreational division, but it's suggested that each team have at least two female players per roster to ensure fair competition.

The objective of the league is to provide structured, evenly matched, quality competition while also fostering a fun, friendly, and safe playing environment.

Games are played under the following format:

  • 7 v 7 (including GK)
  • Medium sized playing fields (50 yd X 90 yd)
  • 60 minute matches (two 30 minute halves)
  • 2-man referee system
  • 10 player minimum per team roster
  • Games between 6:00 and 9:00 PM

Due to the inability to schedule double-headers in the summer season, and limited options for additional match days, we often require an even number of teams on the schedule. Teams are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis in the event an odd number of teams register for the league.  A team will not be considered fully registered until they have met the mandatory minimum player count of 10 completed registrants.

Adult Futsal League

The Adult Futsal league occurs from January to March.  All games are played indoors on turf fields at either Sanford Power or the Four Seasons Dome. 

​Each team plays one match per week on either Sunday or Wednesday night.

Three division formats are routinely offered:

1. Competitive: This division is intended for teams who wish to play in a more competitive atmosphere, where most players have experience in club, high school, collegiate, or even professional soccer programs.

​2. Coed/Recreational: This division is intended for teams who wish to play in a more casual and fun atmosphere. Each team in the division should have at least two female players per roster, and at least one female player on the field at all times during the games.

3. Coed 40+ Division:  This division is intended for players 40 years of age or older who wish to only play against competition near their own age level.

​Games are played under the following format:

  • Game Length - 50 minutes (two 25 minute halves)
  • 5 vs 5  (4 field players + GK)
  • Magic FC club Futsal rules in effect (see document below)

Free Agent Players

Players wanting to participate in league but who do not currently have a team are encouraged to register individually. 

League organizers will make every effort to place you on a team in the division of your choice, however please keep in mind that when registering individually we cannot guarantee entry, as there are sometimes constraints that will prevent placement on other rosters.
