Published Jun 25, 2020

June 25, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA – The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is pleased to announce Sunnyside FC as its newest Division I member.

Based in Denver, CO, Sunnyside FC will begin UPSL play in the 2020 Fall Season as part of the Colorado Division. The club will host its home games in compliance with UPSL National Division I standards.

UPSL Colorado Division Manager Eugelio Ventura said, "We are excited to see Sunnyside FC join the Colorado Division. The ownership group has a history of experience with the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup tournament and is inspired to succeed. I'm convinced Sunnyside FC has a bright future and wish them well as they get set to kick off in the UPSL this fall."

Sunnyside FC is owned by Juan Carrillo, Daniel Gomez Macias and Jose Hernandez.

"We were supposed to start play at the beginning of the year in the Colorado Super League but the COVID-19 pandemic stopped our team from making its debut. Now we'll be making our debut in the UPSL this season," said Carrillo, the club's Director of Operations.

Jose Hernandez, Sr., and Leo Delgado have agreed to serve as coaches.

"We chose the UPSL because we want to be a part of the largest league in North America. We feel it's the best step to take if we want to have the same growth," Carillo said. "A lot of players look at the UPSL as a good stepping stone to bigger things. We want to help these young, talented players."
