Welcome to Pennsylvania Prime’s GoFundMe page. We are a Pennsylvania based semi-pro soccer team based out of the Lehigh Valley. We will be playing in the UPSL (United Premier Soccer League) Premier Division starting in Spring of 2022.
We are looking to build a team around players local to the greater Lehigh Valley area who might not have the opportunity to play in college, players that are no longer playing at the college level or those that have the skills to advance to the next level of play, semi-pro or pro. Tryouts were at the end of November with over 110 talented men competing for 34 spots. About ¾ of those that tried out were from the Lehigh Valley to Philadelphia area. Represented in the ¼ of the other potential players that tried out were men from, Italy, Mexico, Puerto Rico, California, Maine, Alabama, NJ, NY and Ohio.
The team is now in place and from the talent that was secured it looks as though we have the players to compete at a very high level of play.
We have secured several sponsors including Audi Allentown, Chick-fil-A Whitehall, Ruddell & Ruddell Real Estate Team, Blaschak Anthracite and are now looking for additional assistance with personal donations or corporate sponsorships to help us reach our team and team community goals.
In addition to playing in the UPSL, Pennsylvania Prime looks to be very involved in community events and activities. Our key focus will be on assisting youth soccer in the greater Lehigh Valley, PA area via training camps and tournaments. Much of the assistance that we are looking for will be with youth in areas of economic hardship.
By offering a personal donation or corporate sponsorship we look to not only help establish and grow this exciting new semi-pro soccer team in the Lehigh Valley but to give back to youth programs that helped many of our teammates learn and develop our skills.
