           AFC Hearts of San Francisco Joins the Liga NorCal Premier Challenge

San Francisco, CA February 19, 2020 — The AFC Hearts of San Francisco, an American Soccer Club that competes in the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL), will be competing in the Liga NorCal Premier Challenge for the first time this spring 2020. The Hearts made the playoffs in their first two seasons in the UPSL’s Premier Division, and the club was second runner up in the 2018 CSAN Junior State Cup.

“We’re excited to have a reserve club in the Liga NorCal Premier Challenge, one of the oldest semi-professional leagues in the Bay Area. Playing in the Liga NorCal Premier Challenge will increase our brand exposure locally, and our new reserve club will give additional players the opportunity to try-out for our fall 2019 UPSL Premier Division Club.”
The Liga NorCal’s goal is to provide teams with appropriately tiered, local first, then statewide competitions, connected where possible, to season-ending national finals in appropriate age groups.
  
Founded in 1975, younger ages and the lower levels of competition, seek to avoid unnecessary travel, attempting to create local divisions of play. As teams enter the older age groups and higher levels of play, Liga NorCal still tries to avoid unnecessary travel but recognize it becomes more necessary to play games further away.
