June 7th, 2021– Winston-Salem, NC– TSM International (TSM) the Eastern Premier Soccer League (EPSL) have announced a partnership to work together by creating exposure opportunities for EPSL players. The collaboration to promote the EPSL by utilizing one of the top premier sports management agencies is expected to further raise the EPSL’s profile within the US soccer landscape. Through the partnership with EPSL, TSM will be responsible for creating and setting up player combines to expose talented young players for opportunities within the EPSL. With their extensive global network and connections within the soccer world, TSM is an ideal partner to help expose young talented players within the EPSL to professional clubs in the USA and around the world. TSM also provides strategic consulting services for professional clubs, academies, leagues, federations and other sporting organizations to help restructure and streamline operations, improve efficiency and increase capacity and functionality. In its inaugural season, the EPSL is already fostering strong relationships to help advance its strategic positioning as a high-quality developmental league, actively creating opportunities and exposure for hundreds of aspiring soccer players from around the nation.
Newly elected EPSL President Ahmed “Mo” Sheta expressed his excitement in a conference call over the league’s strategic partnership with TSM International. “We are so excited to partner with such a high-caliber sports agency that will be able to help our up-and-coming players that are displaying quality skills and knowledge of the beautiful game. We look forward to a great future with TSM International as we embark towards the end of a successful inaugural season here at the EPSL.”
TSM President and Co-founder, Mr. Roget Bryan, also shared his excitement about the collaboration between both TSM International and the EPSL by saying: “TSM International is ready to build a strong partnership with EPSL that will help the league manifest its vision as a groundbreaking developmental space within the US soccer landscape. For over 20 years, TSM has advocated for premier and developmental players alike that simply have not gotten the recognition and exposure that they deserve. We intend to leverage the depth of our experience and bring the same approach and professionalism to our partnership with the EPSL”.
About the Eastern Premier Soccer League
Formed in 2020, the EPSL has reached historical feeder league agreements with four elite amateur soccer leagues in the Cosmopolitan Soccer League (CSL) in the New York metropolitan area, New Jersey’s Garden State Soccer League (GSSL), the New England Champions League (NECL), and the Baltimore, MD/Washington, DC based Maryland Major Soccer League (MMSL) to establish the first regional based multi-league promotion and relegation system in the United States. The CSL, GSSL, NECL, and MMSL have produced US Open Cup and National Amateur champions and have some of the top amateur teams in the United States so reaching agreements with these elite leagues is an exciting milestone in the history of US Soccer.
The EPSL is also an affiliate of the National Independent Soccer Association (NISA) and EPSL clubs will earn the right to compete in the NISA Independent Cup against NISA professional clubs. EPSL clubs are also affiliated with the US Soccer Federation (USSF) and the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA), through their state associations and, as such, will be eligible to participate in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup qualifying rounds, the US National Amateur Cup and state and regional cup competitions.
