The Texas Premier Soccer League was originally formed back in 1997 and lasted 10 years. In 2013, the league was brought back by Current Owner/President Brendan Keyes, a former pro player and current Head Coach of the Houston Hurricanes FC. The TPSL has everything fans and teams could ask for:
-League and Cup play
-A minimum of one home and one away match against each other side
-Players who play at the highest levels of soccer available to men
This highly competitive league helps all the teams gain access to elite players to fill their team roster. All current NCAA and NAIA players will be able to play soccer at an elite level and still maintain their eligibility, while incoming collegiate players can impress college scouts and coaches alike.
The TPSL is sanctioned by U.S. Club Soccer, an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). The TPSL operates and is managed as a team-run league. Each team is owned and operated individually with each team responsible for maintaining league minimum standards and for raising its own operating revenue.
Goals of the TPSL:
-Provide the highest level of men's soccer
-Strive to continuously raise the standard of play
-Pursue every avenue of promotions, advertising, and community involvement to create public awareness and interest in the TPSL
-Ensure that all teams enter the league with and maintain financial stability
Texas Premier Soccer League is sponsored by Holiday Inn Resort, Keyes Sports Wear, MRSoccerGroup and Mar-key Sports Management.
