ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The dream of Atlanta Rovers FC to win the championship crown in the ongoing 2022 United Premier Soccer League Georgia Summer Regional Cup is now closer to reality. Rovers FC is set to face SEAS Jamaica All Stars in the semifinals of the football tournament on July 30 at the South Gwinett Park at 8 in the evening.
The team got the slot in the semifinals as a wild card entry after winning its last two games in a lopsided fashion. Rovers FC demolish the home team Cochos Football Club, 8-0 at the Hubert Soccer Complex last July 23. The visiting Rovers FC was a focused team as they did not allow the home team to score in there, and at the same time, they scored a ton of points in their game.
Last July 16, the team beat the visiting Atlanta City U17 at the South Gwinnett Park 10-1. With their winning streak, Rovers FC is now 2-1 in the tournament. UPSL is an American professional development soccer league founded in Santa Ana in Southern California.
