Houston, Texas, May 8th 2019
We are excited and honored with our new partnership said chief executive officer Ricardo Alarcon. US Club soccer brand and logo is recognized all over the world, they run the Lamar US Open Cup" so for us it's an honor and privilege to be part of such a prestigious organization.
Alarcon went on to say: my partners and I have worked around the clock for months to make this venture happen. Their is a lot of moving parts that goes on behind the scenes in order to make our project work successfully. USSL will work hard to deliver the fans and players the best run national league in the United States. This league is for the fans and players, they are the most important tools in this process.
Keyes was the original founder of TPSL, he brought in two partners, Alarcon and Escobar to help grow the league. We decide right away the decision was to spread our wings and go national level division four. We all agreed on the name USSL because of what this great country meant to us, Irish, Mexican and Bolivian immigrants who all became America Citizens.
Vice President Alberto Escobar said, we love the game, we all shared our thoughts, ideas about soccer in this country, we all came to the same conclusion, we needed to do something for soccer players and fans. We are good mates that enjoy each others company and talk football for hours on end. Today is a dream come through for the guys and I. We have worked so hard to make this work, God willing it will be successful and give players the opportunities they deserve, the fans a league they can enjoy. We plan on bringing in big name teams for exhibition games from Mexico, Bolivia and Europe, we all agree the fans, players play a pivotal role in our development.
League President Brendan Keyes said today, our philosophy is simple, give players a chance to develop their skills and go up the football ladder. I feel blessed to be in a position to help these young players that aspire to play pro. We want to make a difference in their lives, support them emotionally as well as physically and mentally. We want to give them the skills on the field, also the tools to succeed in life away from the game.
We will give all potential teams the tools they need in order to make a successful business, start up business plan that suits their needs and goals. We must always remember it's about the fans and the players, once we do that we will be good. This league is for everyone, we want to give every single player that believes he has the skills an opportunity to play at national level.
USSL is a men's fourth division level league that was founded in Houston, Texas by three friends who had a dream of taking a state league to national level 4.
We would like to have teams in Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, New Mexico, Florida, South and North Carolina, Virginia, Alabama, keeping in the south/east regions.
Next year we will work on bringing in teams in from Louisiana and Mississippi going forward. We are going to take our time, do things right and build the Texas Division first. Obviously we have many national leagues in the country, we feel we will give teams something different. We're not interested in having 100, 200 or more teams. We want to have a solid 24 to 30 teams that know how to run a spots franchise with our guidance for years to come. We will screen teams coming in, give them the support and assist them to run their soccer club/team. We will build a strong foundation, help teams be ready to play at this level for many years to come.
