The United Soccer Leagues Super-20 League is an American-Canadian soccer league for players 17 to 20 years of age. Introduced in 2006 it took the place of the U-19 age bracket in the Super Y-League.

The league's main goal is to provide opportunities to elite youth players to keep playing without having to join a senior level team.

On August 3, 2008 the Chicago Fire Super-20 team became the first MLS player development team to win a league championship by becoming the North American Super 20 champions after defeating Toronto 2-1 in the Super-20 Final. The win capped a dominating finals competition in which the Fire went 5-0 and outscored the other conference qualifiers by an aggregate score of 17-2, including a 3-0 win over the DC United player development team in the semifinals. The Fire qualified for the North American Finals after finishing on top of the Midwest Conference with a record of 10-1-0. The Fire finished the season with a 15 game winning streak and a final record of 15-1-0. Their two year record of 23-2-3 is the best in North America in the Super 20 division. The team was led by captains and Super 20 League Co-MVP's Robert Younger (Illinois-Chicago) and Mark Blades (Northwestern). Mike Stephens (UCLA) and Chris Cutshaw (Bradley) were named to the All-League team and Matt Eliason (Northwestern) won the Golden Boot award as the leading scorer in the North American Finals with 6 goals in 5 matches, including the game winner in the 81st minute of the Championship match against Toronto.
