Background

The Dutch Lions' inaugural season was spent playing in the Premier Development League, the fourth-tier of the American soccer pyramid. During their campaign, the Lions finished in third place in the Great Lakes Division and in the Central Conference.

In spite of their third-place finish, the Dutch Lions' 29 points and 8-3-5 record was not enough to qualify for the PDL Playoffs, falling short to Forest City London by six points.
