LOS ANGELES – Feb. 28, 2017 – PRLog — United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is pleased to announce that New Jersey Teamsters FC has joined the league and will play in the Northeast Conference beginning with the 2018 Spring Season.
United Premier Soccer League Commissioner Yan Skwara said, “New Jersey Teamsters FC is an exciting addition to the UPSL as the club brings a vast network of talents to the league and our Northeast Conference. Mr. Geraldino is a skilled negotiator and contract writer, and will absolutely move New Jersey Teamsters FC in a positive and productive direction. We can’t wait to see what this team can be because the market is there. We wish New Jersey Teamsters FC the very best of luck as they continue to build toward their debut in the 2018 season.”
New Jersey Teamsters FC is led by Owner Alex Geraldino and Director of Marketing Sibrena Stowe Geraldino.
Geraldino, 45, is a federal procurement officer and a registered intermediary for U.S. Soccer and FIFA. After a brief American football career that took him to NFL Europe and Germany, Geraldino returned to the United States, earned an MBA and went to work building a career in government and sports.
New Jersey Teamsters FC Alex Geraldino said, “It’s all about giving back. Not just for those players as a way to move forward, but to any kid that would like to pursue a professional career. We want to build a successful franchise in the Northeast region. The northeast is really untapped, there’s a lot of potential here and a lot of talent. It’s just a matter of putting out the right product, and marketing properly.”
With resources, experience and connections at a tipping point, Geraldino made the decision to join the UPSL based upon his own extensive research.
“We are tying everything together so that when it’s time to hit the ground running in Spring of ’18 we’ll be ready to go,” Geraldino said. “Now it’s time to find the right facility that will give us the right base and honor the players and the game.”
The team is exploring its venue options in order to comply with the UPSL’s Minimum Standards. The club will announce later its tryout dates and upcoming schedule that will include friendlies and exhibitions in Fall 2017.
