Published Apr 11, 2019

April 11, 2019 – Los Angeles – The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is excited to announce FSA Pro as a new league member kicking off with the 2019 Fall Season.

Based in Warwick (N.Y.), FSA Pro begins play in the UPSL Northeast Division, and will host its home games at Hudson Sports Complex (122 State School Rd., Warwick, NY 10990) in compliance with UPSL Minimum Standards.

United Premier Soccer League East Coast Director Jim Antonakas said, "I'm excited to have Fox Soccer Academy Pro join the UPSL Pro Premier Northeast Conference. I think with the world-class facilities that they're establishing that they'll quickly have a program to be reckoned with. To have a current EPL professional player, Christian Fuchs, and his wife Raluca Gold-Fuchs, as owners is truly a bonus. The UPSL really is gaining the attention of soccer people both here and overseas, and we're looking forward seeing FSA Pro's talented players on the field soon."

Professional footballer Christian Fuchs, who currently plays for Leicester City in England, and wife Raluca Gold-Fuchs, who together are co-Founders of Fox Soccer Academy and Hudson Sports Complex.

Fox Soccer Academy and Hudson Sport Complex co-Founder Christian Fuchs said, "Fox Soccer Academy and Hudson Sports Complex have decided to join the UPSL in order to provide Hudson Valley soccer players the opportunity to grow and develop with an elite soccer team that the local community can be proud of. The UPSL operates similarly to European leagues and provides a promotion and relegation system that is crucial to maintain a high level of competition. This opportunity will provide a foundation to develop players and create a pathway for professional opportunities."

Fox Soccer Academy also currently operates a European network of supplemental training in Leicester, London and Vienna, Austria, Fuchs' home town.

Dino Hamzic is Regional Manager of Fox Soccer Academy USA. A native of Bosnia, Hamzic, 29, previously worked as a coach with New York Red Bulls (MLS) Academy.

FSA Pro soon will host tryouts Sunday, May 19 from 4-6 p.m. ET at Hudson Sports Complex, and on Sunday, June 2 from 3-5 p.m. ET at Hudson Sports Complex. Email dino@foxsoccer.academy to register.
