Texas Premier Soccer League is pleased to announce the return of Houston Regals SCA. The Regals SCA are a big name in Texas soccer having a strong program from youth to their NPSL side. Houston Regals Reserves will field some of those NPSL players in TPSL.
League president Brendan Keyes said today, “we are delighted with the news that Regals owner Miguel Landaverde and his club have decided to come back after a five year absence.”
Unlike most other national and regional leagues the TPSL runs a longer season similar to the European calendar. The season begins in September and ends in April.
Miguel Landaverde, owner of the Houston Regals, commented on the return saying, “we played in the TPSL in it’s first year and won the championship. We wanted to move up and play at a national level and Brendan recommended NPSL as his team Galveston Pirates had played at that level.”
Landaverde continued saying, “moving forward five years later our program has grown and we decided the time was right to play in both leagues. Brendan runs a strong and professional league. Teams like Austin, Twin Cities have been around from the first or second year; it shows stability. I’ve spoken to Brendan about what his goals are and he said TPSL is not trying to have 100 teams like other national programs; they are just trying to give Texas clubs a chance to play at a high level without the high expense that comes with playing on national level.”
Please welcome Houston Regals Soccer Club Association back to TPSL.
