This week a new club came online in the North Texas soccer scene, FC Waco. FC Waco is a non-profit, semi-pro club that will play in the Texas Premier Soccer League starting with the 2018-19 season. FC Waco is slated to kick off in July 2018 with the Salutation Shield, a friendly tournament with the Galveston Hurricanes as well as two other teams yet to be announced.

“It is truly amazing to be a part of this great league!” said Jarrod Barton, President of FC Waco, “I’m excited to see what this club will bring to our community and how we can impact our city in a positive way.”

“The TPSL is proud and excited to welcome our newest franchise to the league,” TPSL owner Brendan Keyes said. “In a very short amount of time, Jarrod has shown a tremendous ability to achieve great things. FC Waco is a club with a purpose. Since day one the Club and its President have been working hard to help the league achieve the goals we have long been striving for.”

The TPSL is a men’s outdoor soccer league featuring 8 premier sides from across the state. The league season runs from September to March. All clubs registered to play with TPSL have an opportunity to qualify for the following season’s Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup due to the sanctioning by US Club Soccer, of the United States Soccer Federation.

Waco soccer fans have long been under-served and the wait is over,” FC Waco’s Jarrod Barton said. “We are also excited to find a new home for the beautiful game in Waco, TX, and look forward forming lasting partnerships with the local business in this great community.”

The TPSL was formed in 2013 consisting of amateur soccer club sides across the state. TPSL is sanctioned by US Club Soccer, an affiliate member of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).
