March 30, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA – The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is pleased to announce Benton County FC as its newest expansion club ahead of the Spring Season.

Based in Rogers, AR, Benton County FC will begin UPSL play in the Central Conference North Division. The club will play its home games at Rogers High School (2300 Dixieland Rd, Rogers, AR 72758).

Ramiro Rendon is the Owner and President of Benton County FC. The team will compete exclusively in the UPSL. 

UPSL Central Conference Manager Matt Kahla said, "The UPSL Central Conference North Division is strenghtened by the addition of Benton County FC. Ramiro Rendon is a team owner who knows the landscape of the UPSL very well, and has experience first-hand as a player. We're excited to have Benton County FC as a member and wish the club success as it prepares for the upcoming Spring Season."

Rendon is a native of Mexico City and previously played with a number of former UPSL member clubs including Madison (Wisc.) 56ers, Chicago Mustangs, Elgin (Ill.) Pumas and Las Vegas City FC, among others.
 
"The UPSL is the best opportunity for soccer players in Arkansas because it is very organized, and it's something to keep the young players playing here in Arkansas," Rendon said. "The UPSL keeps players involved and prepares others for college. The UPSL gets players exposure in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and keeps eyes on players. The league allows players to impress and get really good looks from coaches at the next level."

Games in the Central Conference North Division are schedule to begin on April 10. The club will announce its fixture calendar.
