New Jersey Teamsters FC Announce Hiring of Joe Santella as New Director of Operations
Santella Will Oversee All Aspects of the New UPSL Northeast Conference Team

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BAYONNE, N.J. - May 30, 2017 - The New Jersey Teamsters Football Club is excited to announce the hiring of Joe Santella as the club’s first Director of Soccer Operations.

Santella, 60, will oversee all aspects of the new United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) Northeast Conference team.

New Jersey Teamsters FC Owner Alex Geraldino said, “Ever since I met Joe I sensed that leadership, knowledge, experience and passion for the sport of soccer. Our visions are aligned and I think this is the perfect individual for what I want to bring to the State of New Jersey. There’s a need on the East Coast, and we’re going to fill that need.”

Santella, a former Army (retired) Battalion Commander, is now a Portfolio Manager for Verizon. A native of Long Island, N.Y. and a graduate of Stony Brook University, Santella has served as President of the Jersey City, N.J., Soccer Association for the last three years.

New Jersey Teamsters Director of Soccer Operations Joe Santella said, “Alex Geraldino has a vision – and that’s critical – and it looks like it’s starting to come together. I intend to tackle the full scope of Soccer Operations as well as Administrative Operations.”

He played the game as a child but Santella admits he was inspired by his son to seek a term as an administrator with the Jersey City Soccer Association. His son recently accepted a scholarship from Norwich University in Vermont to play collegiate soccer.

“I know how to get projects done and in an organized fashion, and with that comes the opportunity to run large organizations. I bring a lot of experience to the table,” Santella said.

New Jersey Teamsters FC is exploring its venue options in order to comply with the UPSL’s Minimum Standards. The club will announce later its tryout dates and upcoming schedule that will include friendlies and exhibitions in Fall 2017.
