Menace Soccer through the Years

 

With a history that predates Major League Soccer, the Des Moines Menace has established itself as one of the country's elite amateur soccer clubs.

The men's team has secured 15 appearances in the Premier Development League Playoffs and 12 in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. The franchise has earned four league championships (2005 PDL postseason; 2002 and 2014 PDL regular season; 2012 Women's League Soccer). More than 100 Menace alumni have played professionally, with more than 30 signing Major League Soccer contracts.
