United Premier Soccer League Commissioner Yan Skwara said, "The UPSL is extremely proud of being able to host its 2018 Spring National Championship in Colorado. Part of our nationwide focus was to get to the point where we can rotate our national championship tournament throughout select cities across the United States. We held our Fall 2016 Fall Championship in Arizona, 2017 Championship in Los Angeles, and now we're going to see our 2018 Spring Championship contested in Colorado. It'll be an exciting moment for the clubs and the league, and we're appreciative of the hard work the UPSL's Colorado Conference continues to put in as hosts, specifically Colorado Conference Manager Don Harmon and Tournament Host Max Fowler for their leadership roles."

Athletic Club of Sloan's Lake will serve as Official Host Club of the 2018 UPSL Spring National Championship.

Athletic Club of Sloan's Lake Owner Max Fowler said, "We at Athletic Club of Sloan's Lake and on behalf of the UPSL Colorado Conference and our generous sponsors at Joyride Brewery are honored to be awarded the UPSL's 2018 Spring National Championship.  It's a great opportunity to show off Colorado's beautiful natural landscape and attractions, and showcase the UPSL Colorado Conference's fine stadiums. Special thanks to the Jefferson County Board of Education for use of their soccer-specific facilities for these important matches, and we look forward to hosting this wonderful event and putting Colorado soccer on display."
