As the United Premier Soccer League announces that it has named 33 players to attend the All Star UPSL Admiral Cup 2016, a doubleheader that was held in Yuma, Arizona at the Desert Sun Stadium. Players selected by UPSL were the top performing players in the league.
UPSL selected 33 players from the UPSL league to take part at the UPSL all star weekend as we played a double header that took place June 11, 2016 on a Saturday night. UPSL competed against Phoenix Monsoon and Frontera United.
Legacy FC, along with UPSL team selected our youngest and definitely most consistent player, Nikolai Amurrio who is 16 years of age to participate in the UPSL All Star weekend. Amurrio joined legacy in January of 2015 during our spring season at the age of 15 and he excelled all of Legacy’s expectations. Amurrio, played at LA United FC for a year and a half and decided to step into a professional soccer setting to be able to compete with payers at a higher level. As we acknowledge and recognize all the hard work our players put in on and off the field and base our selections of players to attend based on merit we decided that Amurrio had well deserved to be a part of this experience.
Legacy FC is looking forward to be a part of the All star UPSL Admiral cup for the following year as it was definitely a great experience for our players and our coaches as well.
