Martin Brock, CEO of The Junior Premier League UK, said: “This is a very exciting expansion for both the JPL and youth soccer in Utah.
“We have been looking at the United States for some time and with the support of an experienced soccer administrator like Daren, we have all the building blocks in place.
“It is our intention to complement the existing – and excellent – youth soccer structure in Utah, to bring opportunities that have served our players so well in the UK.
“We want to work with the very best youth players and teams, so entry to our leagues will be by invitation only. Only the best will get in.
“This is our first step into a youth soccer market that has boundless possibilities for young people to thrive and achieve their ambitions. We want to be part of that.”
