TWIN FALLS, Idaho - Nov. 29, 2016 - PRLog -- By Dennis Pope

It's been nothing short of a magical start for United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) first-year franchise Idaho Magic Valley FC.

The only professional soccer club in Idaho endured some ups-and-downs in its first season but finished 14-4-1 overall to secure a berth in the UPSL Nevada Division playoffs and qualify for UPSL Pro Premier Division as the league integrates its Promotion/Relegation Model in 2017.

Idaho Magic Valley FC Owner/Head Coach Jair Archila: "It feels good. I honestly didn't expect it. There was a point where I honestly didn't expect we'd make playoffs, or be near the top in our first year, but these boys are hungry. They pulled it off."

Magic Valley FC has won four consecutive games and is awaiting announcement of their semifinal opponent. Archila is hoping for a home game at Magic Valley's home at Sunway Soccer Complex.

"We're showing people that there is soccer, and there are talented soccer players that will play in a higher division now," Archila said.

The Twin Falls (Id.)-based club has begun to serve as a vital pipeline for player in the area around Southern Idaho.

"For these boys our here that there wasn't any soccer before, the goal is to get this team more developed to where players come out, especially the ones who dream of playing professional, and help them achieve their dream."
