Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - May 30, 2017 - The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is excited to announce L.A. Roma Spartans FC as a new UPSL member team for the 2017 Fall Season.

L.A. Roma Spartans FC will begin play in the United Premier Soccer League’s Championship Division Western Conference.

United Premier Soccer League Commissioner Yan Skwara said, “L.A. Roma is a proven top Pro Development team based in L.A. that has been participating in a few other leagues the past few years, so we are finally happy to see them come over and join the UPSL. The combination of L.A. Roma, a non-stop trophy machine in the L.A. Super Metro League, and Spartans FC, a top youth club, is a winner. We wish General Manager Georgi Hristov  and L.A. Roma Spartans FC the best of luck as the embark upon their first UPSL season this fall.”

L.A. Roma Spartans FC is operated by Georgi Hristov, 47, a former professional player in Europe who was selected in a green card lottery and immigrated to the United States in 1997. A native of Bulgaria, Hristov had trial a trial with Los Angeles Galaxy (MLS) and a short stint at Portland Timbers (A-League) before earning his USSF ‘Pro’ Coaching License and settling into life as a soccer coach in and around Los Angeles for the last 15 years.

L.A. Roma Spartans FC General Manager and Head Coach Georgi Hristov said, “As we know, here in America it’s all about the millions. Whoever has the millions goes to the MLS, but it shouldn’t be like that. You should start from the UPSL and with success come the money, and promotion and relegation, we go all the way to the top. UPSL is going national and it’s a great place to start to get going with it.”

L.A. Roma is an eight-time champion of the Los Angeles Super Metro Soccer League.

“It’s time to move up and find a different level,” Hristov said. “We want to go as high as we can with L.A. Roma Spartans FC, and we have to start now with the UPSL.”

An official relationship with local youth club Spartans FC was formed earlier this year with the intent to graduate Spartans FC youth players to L.A. Roma Spartans FC. Spartans FC President Alvaro Sanchez will serve as L.A. Roma Spartans FC’s Associate Head Coach.

“We give an opportunity, especially to the Hispanic community of L.A. (and) a lot of these kids are from there (Mexico and Central American countries),” Hristov said. “We’re giving them an opportunity to continue to play, and if they go on to college then come to the program after that.”

The team is exploring its venue options in order to comply with the UPSL’s Minimum Standards. The club will soon announce its upcoming game schedule.
