City FC Launches! Five clubs become affliated for the betterment of North Texas Soccer youth
June 2014, Dallas Texas.
Five clubs have joined forces with one mission in mind, to help their playing members achieve greater competition while still representing their home team/club.
Texas Spirit (and Tx Sporting FC Boys), Odyssey SC, Storm FC, Triumph FC and Mustangs FC have created a joint venture to allow their players to tryout for an academy level team without the need to leave their present coach or team. The new club is called City FC.
City FC will be unique in that the players still tryout for one of the affiliated clubs and after making that team in July can then opt to also play at the City FC level.
By structuring the club in such a way, our players don't have to leave their club team, that they have attachment to, in order to play for a team that can offer a greater level of competition, they can do both! Other coach and player benefits of our Club structure have attracted some of the best coaches from around the metroplex to become City FC affiliates. Each affiliate club still operates as they have before, giving the players and their families greater knowledge and support of each prospective area.
The new affiliate club will have:
- 33 full time staff coaches
- 18 part time staff coaches
- Many coaches with national and international high level licenses
- Numerous facilities in the metroplex for City FC training
- Various Player ID, Skills, Summer and Developmental Camps (Including Tx Spirit College id Camp, Storm FC's Glasgow Rangers FC North American Soccer Academy and Aston Villa FC Elite Player and team Camps, Odyssey SC's Strikezone Skills camps, and Mustangs FC's Summer Skills Camps).
- Affiliate tournaments: including Odyssey SC's Golden Goal Holiday Classic, Triumph FC's Winter Cup and Summer Shootout, Storm FC's Winter Storm 5v5 Cup and Summer Sizzler 5v5.
