2019 Fall UPSL season

The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is an American professional development soccer league that was founded in Santa Ana in Southern California, with teams in regionalized conferences throughout the United States. The league was founded in 2011 by Santa Ana Winds FC club owner Leonel López as a regional league for teams in Greater Los Angeles, but expanded to include teams from 32 states as of the 2019 UPSL season.

Two seasons are played each year, with regional play culminating in a playoff system that crowns a single national champion each season. The league features internal promotion and relegation with up to three levels in some regions; only clubs in the top tier Division I are eligible to compete for the national championship.

The league is a United States Adult Soccer Association National League, within the larger United States soccer league system.[1][2]

History[edit]

The UPSL was formed in 2011 with 10 teams, and has over 300 member clubs across the nation with the arrival of a league commissioner in former player Yan Skwara in 2014. Each UPSL team is independently owned and operated. The league contests two seasons each calendar year, with the Spring season beginning in March and ending with national playoffs in July, and a Fall season with play beginning in September with national playoffs in December.[3] More than 160 teams participated in the 2018 Spring season.

UPSL announced it would begin promotion/relegation system beginning in 2017.[4][5] Teams will compete in two divisions: Pro Premier and Championship.

In November 2016 the UPSL announced the addition of a Colorado conference set to begin in 2017.[6][7]

In August 2017, the league announced that all eleven clubs of the Premier League of America would be joining the USPL as a new Midwest Conference. The conference will initiate friendlies during the 2017 Fall Season and begin league play in 2018.

In January 2019, the league announced that Matt Kahla, Jr. would be the new UPSL National Director. Matt Kahla, Jr. successfully build the Central Conference to over 80 teams.[8]

U.S. Open Cup[edit]

Former member club PSA Elite is known for reaching the fourth round of the 2014 and the 2015 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup by knocking out higher-level professional teams. Three UPSL teams, La Máquina FC, L.A. Wolves FC, and San Nicolas FC qualified for the 2016 U.S. Open Cup.[9] La Máquina FC advanced to the fourth round (knocking out Portland Timbers U23, Sacramento Gold, and LA Wolves FC) before falling to LA Galaxy.[10] The UPSL's participants in the 2016 US Open Cup altogether defeated teams from the PDL (Timbers U-23), NPSL (Sacramento Gold), and USL (Orange County Blues FC).

League structure[edit]

The UPSL operates in a geographical conference structure with localized Sections within each Conference. The number of Sections within each Conference varies based on team density. More dense Conferences are divided into a promotion/relegation structure with Division I, Division II and Division III.[11]
