The United Soccer League reached an agreement with Alianza de Futbol to become the exclusive domestic professional league partner of the leading promoter of youth and amateur Hispanic soccer in the
United States that has developed its reputation for showcasing players to Mexican clubs.
Alianza de Futbol works with its Sueno Alianza showcase matches to provide exposure for
players at regional and national events that attract over 220,000 players annually.
“We look forward to working with Alianza to identify undiscovered, talented Hispanic soccer
players and provide them the opportunity to launch their professional careers in the USL,” said USL President Jake Edwards
. “Many highly talented young Hispanic players have been
discovered through the Alianza program, including those who have gone on to play in MLS and Liga MX. We look forward to continuing that success in the USL.”
The United Soccer
League hopes to allow its clubs in the USL and PDL to reach out to Alianza de Futbol players.
“We are looking forward at Alianza to partner with USL to continue to provide new
opportunities to the Hispanic communities,” said Joaquin Escoto
, the managing director of Alianza de Futbol. "Our new U-22 age group launching this year will provide a direct path to USL
& PDL clubs to the best players in Alianza."
