Admiral Sports is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Tyler FC, a National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) side from Tyler, Texas. 

“It’s exciting to see so many NPSL teams choose Admiral,” Admiral Sports CEO Paul Hamburger stated. “We’re very happy to be working with Tyler FC, an ambitious new club from the Lone Star State.  They are going to do some great things and Admiral will be with them every step of the way.”

Tyler FC is led by the Avila family and Beto Ortega. 

Christopher Avila, who will serve as President and General Manager, played semi-professional indoor soccer at just 16 years old and went on to play for San Luis Potosi in Mexico.  He also played at Richland College, Thomas University, and Dallas City FC.

Vice President Gloria Avila has been in Tyler, Texas for approximately 35 years and owns two separate businesses. Cesar and Jenniffer Avila are also owners and will be helping with stadium operations during the NPSL season.  Ortega will be the Director of Player Development.  He is very involved in the soccer community in Tyler, especially within the youth ranks.  He will also help move players from the club’s academy to their first team program.

“I like Admiral because of the wide variety of kit selection that there is,” Christopher Avila noted. “Also because I can customize my jerseys any way I want. I also like the quality of the products available. I think Admirals customer service is out of this planet.  This has been the easiest decision I have made since I started my club in the NPSL.” 

Tyler FC will play their home matches at Herrington Stadium in Bullard, Texas.  The facility is owned and operated by the Brook Hill School.
