The league is entering the upcoming season with an approach to generate a wider variety of competition amongst member clubs with an emphasis on player development and reducing travel costs.
“The I-10 League is unique in several ways,” said Ed Espinoza, I-10 Futbol Alliance & League Founder. “Without sacrificing quality competition, we offer reduced costs along with reduced travel times for soccer families across the region. We utilize professional league management services which lead to high degrees of scheduling effectiveness, accountability, and organization. League winners are also approved by US Club Soccer to advance directly to the National Cup Southeast regional. Finally, our decision-making body is made up of directors from our founding member clubs which keeps us focused on the clubs’ needs. There are similar models in different parts of the country, but we are unique for the Southeast market.”
