We're interested in building the UPSL for the long haul, and as a club we felt that the UPSL was a good fit for future direction. We wish the NPSL, our previous league, the best success. The UPSL is a tough league so we will have to compete as always and look forward to the challenges that lay ahead."
United Premier Soccer League Commissioner Yan Skwara said, "Real San Jose SC is a club that wanted a new destiny and a new challenge. Nick Arellano is a unique and dynamic owner who has been in the business of soccer for many years and who understands the landscape of lower-division soccer in the United States. We are very excited to open the Northern California Conference as this is a strong soccer market for the UPSL with lots of great players and teams. Real San Jose SC brings to the table a wealth of experience both on and off the field, and we look forward to working with the club into 2017. We wish Real San Jose and its Owner Nick Arellano the best of success as they enter a new chapter in their club's history."
