Shinde Out of Texas Cup Final

Pratik Shinde will miss out on the TPSL’s showcase game tomorrow as an injury will keep him from playing in the Admiral Texas Cup Final. Shinde suffered a groin strain in training last night and will miss the match.

“He is devastated,” Houston Hurricanes FC head coach Brendan Keyes stated. “I feel so bad for him as he just earned his starting position back by playing some really good football.”

Jorge Vela will also miss the game with a pulled hamstring.

“That’s football, but you do feel for both players,” Keyes concluded.

The Hurricanes will play the Houston Dutch Lions Saturday November 30th in the Admiral Texas Cup Final. The match kicks off at 7:45 pm at the HDLFC Soccer Complex, 14562 Interstate 45 South, Conroe, TX 77384.

ISN and TPSL Come to Terms on Media Partnership

International Soccer Network, LLC (ISN) is proud to announce that it has entered into a media partnership agreement with the Texas Premier Soccer League (TPSL).

ISN will offer exclusive news and content for the new Texas-based league, which is an affiliate of U.S. Club Soccer.  ISN will also lead an extensive awards program that will include weekly and end of season honors, while providing media and public relations services to the TPSL.

“We are excited to work with such an exciting new league,” ISN Editor Gary Moody stated. “The TPSL captures what Texas soccer is all about: great teams, intriguing matchups, and quality players and coaches.  And the league is led by one of the best soccer men in the country in former Irish pro Brendan Keyes.”

The TPSL has a strong stable of teams despite being in just its first year of existence.  Houston Leones FC, Houston Hurricanes FC, Houston Regals SCA, Houston Dutch Lions FC, Galveston Pirate SC, and BCS Bearkatz FC are all set to compete in the TPSL in 2013.

“ISN will help bring the TPSL much-needed exposure and publicity,” TPSL President Brendan Keyes commented. “They are leaders in the soccer industry and we are excited with our partnership moving forward.”

The TPSL season will consist of regular season games, a mid-season Texas Cup, and the playoffs.  TPSL teams will even have an opportunity to qualify for the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, the oldest national soccer competition in the United States.
