UPSL Announces Media and Marketing Partnership with Non League America

Famous for Its Perspective on Lower Division Soccer Culture, Non League America Partners with the UPSL
Published Nov 1, 2018

November 1, 2018 – Los Angeles – The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is proud to announce a media and marketing partnership with Non League America.

The UPSL and Non League America are committed to reaching the overwhelming numbers of soccer fans across the country.

United Premier Soccer League Communications Director Dennis Pope said, "This is an excellent opportunity for the UPSL to continue to gain exposure across the country. Non League America has been a force in coverage and marketing of Lower Division Soccer in the United States, so it seems natural that they would partner with the fastest-growing Pro Development league in the nation. We look forward to Non League America documenting many of our teams and partnering on future marketing projects."

Uncovering the lower division culture of soccer in America with a respectful honesty since 2012, Non League America famously produces a riveting documentary series about many of the country's burgeoning clubs.

Non League America Founder and Director of Strategy Steve Bayley said, "We are very excited to formalize a partnership between Non League America and the UPSL. As a relentless advocate for independent clubs, lowering barriers to entry into the American soccer system, nurturing unique club cultures, and providing connections between supporters and clubs, we see the UPSL model as checking most of these boxes and giving opportunities for very small clubs to grow a stable foundation. The UPSL is unique in the sense that it is an incubator of ideas and remains committed to providing a long enough season through its two-season option for clubs to build enough momentum to gain relevancy in their communities. We look forward to working directly with clubs, the conferences and the UPSL National Office to further spread the joy of amateur soccer in the United States."

Co-Founder Chris Reid is Non League America's Director of Operations and Fulfillment. Jamisa Johnson is Non League America's Director and Editor.
