The Premier Development League today welcomed Texas United and FC Cleburne to the league ahead of the 2017 regular season. Owned and operated by Neltex Sports Group, the two clubs will join the Southern Conference.
Neltex Sports Group, which is led by President Robbie Fenyes, is comprised of distinguished sport executives, entrepreneurs and successful business owners based in Texas.
“We are thrilled to have the Neltex Sports Group join the Premier Development League as owners because they know how to run an effective franchise and will provide college-aged players in the area a great opportunity to improve their game on their path to the professional ranks,” PDL Director Todd Eason said. “The PDL made it a priority to bring high-performing ownership groups into the league for 2017 and beyond, and Texas United’s and FC Cleburne’s ownership group is a strong addition to the league.”
