The Houston area (Rosenberg) is home to a brand new and little-known professional soccer team – the Houston Leones. Founded by Juan Carlos Hernandez, president of the J. C. Hernandez Construction, Inc., the Leones play at Soccer World Center F.C., a soccer-specific facility in the city of Richmond, Texas, 32 miles (51 km) west-southwest of downtown Houston.
The Leones compete in the USL Premier Development League, a league made up of 67 teams that develops players for leagues such as the MLS (Major League Soccer). Fans of “futbol” can catch the squad Saturday at 6 PM for their match against the Mississippi Brilla.
