Hispanic Heritage Month is an annual month-long celebration dedicated to celebrating and paying tribute to the histories, cultures, and contributions of generations of Hispanic and Latino Americans. The United Soccer League will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15-October 15. Over the four-week span, the league will recognize, honor and celebrate members of the Hispanic community that have shaped the USL, its clubs and communities across the United States.
