This time it's in Baltimore, a great city and host of another historic United Soccer Coaches Convention. The UPSL received National League status from USASA in late 2019, meaning the league is right there among the top development leagues in the United States and an increased responsibility on the country's biggest soccer stage. This is a great time of the year for all our member clubs to meet, mix-and-match and get to know each other off the field, developing relationships and discussing future soccer business. We look forward to seeing everybody and look forward to a great 2020 calendar year for the league and all its members."
