"The Dallas-Fort Worth area is without a doubt one of the biggest soccer hotbeds in the United States," said League Commissioner Joe Ferrara, Jr. "I have been familiar with Mr. Soliz and his teams for nearly 10 years and his mission for the Image is perfectly aligned with that of United Women's Soccer."
"We look forward to joining UWS as they expand into Texas for the summer of 2018 on its inaugural season," said Soliz. "We are excited to provide the opportunities for our female players to play in a professionally structured league. It is our goal to grow the sport of women's soccer in the Dallas-Fort Worth area."
