Laredo, TX (Tuesday, November 5, 2013): The United Soccer Leagues (USL) announced today that the Laredo Heat Soccer Club has been selected to USL Hall of Fame due to their 10 years of participation as a franchise in the league as a member of the Premier Development League (PDL).

The Heat will be honored during the USL’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony that will be held on Friday, December 13th during this year’s Annual General Meeting being held at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa in Clearwater, Florida.

“Never did I realize that ten years would go by so quickly when we were awarded a USL franchise back in 2003”, said Heat Owner Shashi Vaswani.

“As a franchise, we have been very fortunate over the years to have had quality players and coaches, not to mention a solid front office and great volunteers that were all committed to bring a great product to the field that has provided many exciting and unforgettable moments, most especially making the playoffs during every season of our existence and playing in four different PDL Championship Games”.

Vaswani concluded, “It is during these times of celebration and recognitions that I want to also thank everyone, from former and current players, coaches, staff and most importantly, our loyal fans for being part of the ride so far and here is to a great 2014 PDL Season, our 10th Anniversary Season, let’s get back to that PDL Final”.
